Thousands of Former Orphans from Quebec Abused by Nuns and Brothers Seek Justice for Crimes Committed 1940s through 1960s. Several Catholic Orders

physical abuse, torture, murder and exploitation in recent Catholic Church history. There are about 3000 survivors, who as children were wrongfully
put into Catholic Church run orphanages and psychiatric institutions where they suffered unspeakable abuse at the hands of priests, brothers and nuns.
Now they want justice from the Catholic Church which has so far avoided liability for its crimes.

Rome based Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic
Life headed by Archbishop João Bráz de Aviz which is part of the Vatican Curia and has overall responsibility for the conduct of Roman
The Catholic Orders accused include The Little Franciscans of Mary, Brothers of Notre Dame of Mercy, the Grey Nuns, Sisters of Mercy, Sisters of
Providence, Sisters of Charity of Quebec, Sisters of the Good Shepherd and Sisters Notre Dame of Auxiliatrice.
Documented accusations include use of electro shocks to punish children, child trafficking, murder, sexual molestation, torture and forced labor. The
petition outlines various representative case histories and crimes committed on a systematic
basis through 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s until finally halted by the Canadian government. Many of the crimes committed resulted in financial gain for the
orders who received millions of dollars from the Canadian and Quebec government for warehousing so called orphans.
