Eldon Edward Provincial
I was sent to the training school for stealing $4.00 worth of food from the grocery store. I was hungry as my father was gone and my mother was alcoholic. I got four years in St. John's for my crime.
I ran after I was sexually molested by one of the Priests. With hands tied to the front of the bed and my feet to the back and a pillow to prevent damage to the spine they beat me. We bear these scars on our hearts and will take them to our graves.
I was sent to the training school for stealing food ... who committed, the greatest crime? ... me for my hunger or him for his hunger?
I've been on welfare for over twenty-nine years because of what they did to my legs ... they ruined my life.
