The Gristle in the Stew


Huronia Regional Centre was an Ontario home for the mentally disabled. It opened in 1876, but didn't close until 2009. Parents were told their children would be cared for and that it was  the best thing for them. It's now coming to light that this was not the case. For the first time, adults who grew up in these places are telling harrowing stories of abuse and neglect.

Produced by David Gutnick for The Sunday Edition on CBC Radio.
