NAT084 - (Indian-Hospitals-Lawsuit) EDMONTON. x-11s. Lawyers have filed a proposed class-action lawsuit alleging abuse at Indian Hospitals run decades ago by the federal government. A statement of claim says Indigenous patients suffered physical and sexual assaults at the 29 hospitals from 1945 until the last one closed in 1981. The lead plaintiff in the case, Ann Hardy of Edmonton, was 10 when she was admitted to the city's Charles Camsell hospital for tuberculosis in 1969. She says it's important for her to be part of the lawsuit. ("..caring for us.") (SOURCE:The Canadian Press)
