These are the responsible Governor Generals from 1946 till 1974 (in between brackets the years in which they were appointed): The Viscount Alexander of Tunis (1946), Vincent Massey (1952), Georges Vanier (1959), and Roland Michener (1967-1974).
This quote is from another thread, which is also relevant in this context.
This is also indicative for the reason dictators want a Prime Minister. These orphans were named after Prime Minister Duplessis, when in reality the Governor General simply ordered the Prime Minister what to do in accordance with the wishes of the Queen, and the Prime Minister can be used for a scapegoat.Firestarter wrote:Another scandal is the terrible story of the ten thousands Duplessis’ orphans, that were sentenced to mental diseases in Canada in the 1940s and 1950s. They were named after former Quebec Prime Minister Maurice Duplessis. Already in 1962 the Bedard Commission acknowledged that one-third of the 22,000 psychiatric patients did not belong.
These children were simply told one day that they were retards, didn’t get any schooling and had to perform slave labour. As if this wasn’t enough they got treated with corporal punishment, experimental anti-psychotics (like Chlorpromazine), ECT, lobotomies, and a large number was sexually molested. Medical records were falsified to hide the evidence.
The orphanages were stimulated to declare these children insane because the government paid only $1.25 a day for orphans, but $2.75 a day for psychiatric patients. In 1999, Léo-Paul Lauzon and Martin Poirier estimated that Christian groups received $70 million in subsidies (measured in 1999 dollars) by claiming children as "mentally deficient" while the government saved $37 million by having one of its orphanages redesignated from an educational institution to a psychiatric hospital. This is not even counting the lucrative deals made with CIA and pharmaceutical industry for the chance of experimenting on these children.
In 2001 the Canadian government offered 10,000 dollar plus an additional 1000 dollar for each year spent in an asylum, but only, for surviving orphans that got lobotomies (1,500 people qualified for compensation) and in 2006 they provided an additional $26 million compensation. To put this in perspective: this is less than the orphanages got in the first place, while 1000 dollar a year amounts to 2.76 dollar per day.
Not one of the psychiatrists or child care workers that participated in the torture of these children were charged in a criminal case. Of course the tax payers can rest assured, knowing that no attorney will try to get adequate compensation for these children (thanks to government-controlled attorneys.).

The genocide on Native American children in Catholic residential schools in Canada from the end of the nineteenth century on is well-documented. It is estimated that some 50,000 children were killed, while also a lot of potential mothers were sterilised.
Here you can read that the Canadian government (of Queen Elizabeth) together with the Catholic Church has been trying to exterminate all Native Americans (for a final solution): http://canadiangenocide.nativeweb.org/genocide.pdf
On April 12, 1910 D.C. Scott declared: “It is readily acknowledged that Indian children lose their natural resistance to illness by habitating so closely in these schools, and that they die at a much higher rate than in their villages. But this alone does not justify a change in the policy of this Department, which is geared towards the final solution of our Indian Problem”.
