    The Sunday Edition The story of a separate and unequal Canadian health care system

    The history of so-called "Indian hospitals" that operated in Canada through the 1970s is little known to most Canadians. It was a racially segregated, parallel health care system that kept Aboriginal Canadians out of mainstream Canadian hospitals; some former patients say they were the victims of abuse and medical experimentation. Brock University professor Maureen Lux's new book "Separate Beds: A History of Indian Hospitals in Canada, 1920s-1980s," looks at this dark chapter in Canadian health care policy.
