A horrendous crime against children that almost no-one knows about. It reportedly took place in Canada and lasted for 2 decades starting in the 1940’s. The atrocity bears the name of Maurice Duplessis -the governor of Quebec at the time. His apparent corrupt deal with the Catholic Church opened a gruesome chapter in history- Canada still refuses to acknowledge. 300 thousand children became victims – babies taken from young mothers or kids taken mainly from poor families by Catholic institutions.
The majority of them were sold to childless families or on the black market – the price varied from 40 dollars per baby-up to 25 thousand. The rest – who bear the name “Duplessis Orphans” – were sent to psychiatric hospitals. Quebec authorities and Catholic Orders apparently received government funding for each child treated in a psychiatric facility.
Torture, slave labor, electroshock, beatings, drugs, sex abuse, lobotomies – these children were subjected to the worst things imaginable – while it seems the government and church made money. A lot of children died – and the way they were treated after death was no better.
In 1999, a mass grave was discovered – 6 Boxes with over 2,000 Human Remains. It was dubbed “Pigsty cemetery”, located next to a pig farm, which raised horrific speculation that pigs might have eaten some of the orphans’ remains. Reports suggest dead children were also sold to medical schools for autopsies-at 10 dollars per body. A survivor of this shocking policy- Duplessis Orphan Clarina Duguay and her husband Rod Vienneau shared this untold story.
