The White Slaves of Canada
Canadians didn't enslave blacks. They enslaved their own children.
This article is about the 100,000 British kids sent to Canada between 1869 and 1948 to be used as slaves. Most were whipped, beaten, molested and raped. Many didn’t survive.
“75 lives, 75 children. Brought here to thrive, instead were forgotten.”
So reads the inscription on a soon-to-be dedicated new monument commemorating the all-too-short lives of dozens of British Home Children buried in two mass graves at Park Lawn Cemetery.
