Charles Camsell Indian Hospital Still Haunts Patients

Edmonton AB, The Buffalo Tribune Indigenous Interviewed a former patient from the Charles Camsell Hospital

In 1946, the Charles Camsell Indian hospital was opened in Edmonton as part of the twenty-nine "Indian hospitals" that were established and operated by the Canadian government between 1945 to 1981, exclusively for Indigenous peoples.

The Canadian government segregated Indigenous people from the rest of society in substandard hospitals which were massively overcrowded, improperly staffed, and rife with physical and sexual abuse.
