BRAINWASHING VICTIMS NEED LAWYER
"All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
To Orwell Today,
Hello Jackie -
Thank you for posting your comments on Orwell Today re the victims of the brainwashing experiments at the Allan Memorial Hospital in Montreal. See CANADA BRAINWASHING VICTIMS INVITED
I am the woman who is interviewed on the 5th Estate on December 15, 2017 with my daughter Diane McIntosh.
I was a victim of Dr. Ewen Cameron and his group of doctors and was actually committed to the Douglas Hospital as hopelessly incurable. I would still be there had it not been for a young psychiatric resident from Australia who upon seeing me at the Douglas and after reading my chart, felt that I had truly been a brainwashing victim and he spent the next nine years treating me. He saved my life and I have been very fortunate. I have three daughters and they have been very close and have supported me over the years.
I was a single mother and had to work but I managed to keep my secret because I felt that it was all my fault. You can imagine how surprised I was when the government actually compensated me for the outrageous treatments that I received and validated me as a normal human being who had been horribly mistreated.
The memory is in the rear view window of my life now and I have to say that I am extremely happy with my life. I met and married a wonderful man who strongly supported my cause and we have spent 29 happy years together. My girls have had struggles over the years and I hope that they receive compensation from the Federal Government of Canada for the pain and suffering that they experienced as a result of the loss of their mother for the first ten years of their lives.
We have joined the SAAGA group and hope that good results are forthcoming.
What a pleasant surprise to hear from one of the 'movie stars' of the recent 5th Estate program that has aired a couple of times on CBC -- the first time on December 15, 2017 and then again end of March or early April which is when I saw it.
Tears stung my eyes when you told about the young Australian psychiatrist saving your life. It restores, somewhat, a person's faith in the psychiatric profession which (it seems in the majority of cases) is nothing but an extension of the pharmaceutical industry (oops, profession) for all the mind-controlling, body-destroying drugs they push on people -- Ewen Cameron being a classic example.
It's wonderful that the Survivors Allied Against Government Abuse group has been formed to take on the Canadian government to finally, for once and for all, get an apology and compensation for the victims and their families who, in their own way, suffered trauma from the atrocities inflicted on their mothers and fathers and wives and husbands.
Here is the segment from the 5th Estate featuring you and your daughter:

while hospitalized in Montreal for post-partum depression in the 1960s
Praise, appreciation and admiration are due to you for the courage and strength of character it took for you to take back your mind and be a loving mother again to your children.
All the best,
To Orwell Today,
Hello Jackie -
Thank you for your lovely email.
There are only a couple of us survivors living that underwent the horrors that Dr. Ewen Cameron inflicted on us. It was a house of horrors and no one knew what to do!
The SAAGA group is young and enthusiastic and are definitely spreading it all around. I am very grateful and proud and hope that my daughters will also benefit from being a part of that group. It is more difficult to participate from out on the West coast and I don't think anyone of us will be able to attend the meeting but we'll be there in spirit!
All the best,
Greetings again Helene,
I got an email today from Julie Tanny from the SAAGA group saying there's a french version of The 5th Estate brainwashing program and that her brother was interviewed on it. She also said that she and three other victims were being interviewed by 5th Estate and CTV tomorrow (Thursday, April 19) in Montreal. See CANADA BETRAYED BRAINWASHING VICTIMS
From the english and french versions of The 5th Estate program more victims have come forward and for the next month -- until the May 20th meeting of victims -- they'll be airing the interviews as often as possible in hopes of reaching more victims.
The only fly in the ointment is that so far no lawyer has come forward to SAAGA to represent them in the class-action lawsuit against the government of Canada.
But out there somewhere there must be an idealistic lawyer longing to get his teeth into a real battle for good against evil -- with maybe the only reward being self-satisfaction and respect.
In the legal system they always talk about "precedent" -- well, the precedent has been set now with the second generation of victims having been recognized as legitimate and compensated.
I'm thinking of the other 'movie star' of The Fifth Estate program. Alison Steel is the daughter of a victim and she received compensation (not sure if she got an apology) for the wrongs the government perpetrated against her by taking away her mother.
'What they did to my mother was torture'
The daughter of a CIA brainwashing victim looks for justice)
On October 9, 1957, Dr Ewen Cameron, a Scottish-born psychiatrist and director of the Allan Memorial Institute at McGill University in Montreal noted that his 33-year-old patient, Jean Steel, was on her 23rd day of drug-induced sleep. Steel had undergone four electroconvulsive shock-therapy treatments. Several more were planned. In previous days, while awake, she had shown some aggressiveness toward staff, behaviour Cameron felt needed to be "broken up"... "What they did to my mother was torture", Alison Steel, now 65, says from Knowlton, Que. "It is horrific. It is unbelievable". What wasn't publicly known in 1957, and what would not be revealed until decades later, was that Cameron's work at AMI was funded in part by the Central Intelligence Agency as part of Project MK-Ultra, a covert program in human mind control -- brainwashing... In 2015 Alison Steel initiated a legal action against the Canadian government, which also funded the experiments. A few months ago, she received a $100,000 settlement. "It wasn't about the money", she says. "I was seeking justice for my mother -- and my father. They had been young and happy"...
It's bad enough being a victim once removed -- as in the relatives of the victims who were tortured -- but it's mind-blowing imagining what it must have been really like, for you, to experience.
It's a moral victory and a financial victory -- $100,000 -- that you and the other victims portrayed in the documentary were successful in getting the Canadian government to do the right thing for you -- now they need to do it for all the others.
All the best,

To Orwell Today,
Thank you Jackie - it is a good feeling to get such overwhelming support! I'm sure that the results will reveal that.
Canada brainwashing victims find lawyer (SAAGA launching class-action lawsuit to sue Canadian gov't), CBC News, May 21, 2018
...Around 40 people gathered at a Montreal condo to share their stories, cry and support each other. The pain, many said, was palpable in the room...The federal government provided Cameron with more than $500,000 between 1950 and 1965 -- $4 million in today's dollars -- along with a smaller amount of funding from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, using a front organization called the Society for the Investigation of Human Ecology. Today, many people argue that Cameron's experiments are part of the foundation for contemporary psychological torture techniques...The recent CBC News articles and The Fifth Estate documentary Brainwashed led to a flood of emails from victims and their families. People wanted to know how to access medical records and compensation, and more than anything they wanted to connect with each other... SAAGA announced at the Sunday meeting that Stein has agreed to assist the group in launching a class-action lawsuit to sue the Canadian government, maybe also the Quebec government and the Allan Memorial Institute. It would first have to be approved by the Quebec Superior Court, which could take four to six months, Stein said...

I THINK THEREFORE I AM
LSD Officially Tested by Albert Hoffmann: April 19, 1943
Everything in my field of vision wavered and was distorted as if seen in a curved mirror. I also had the sensation of being unable to move from the spot", Swiss chemist Albert Hoffmann wrote in his 1980 auto-biography LSD: My Problem Child. Hoffmann had just ridden his bike home from his lab after deliberately ingesting a small amount of a drug he had created to be used as a medicine. But he'd taken too much and Hoffmann experienced the first bad acid trip. He said it felt as if a demon had invaded him and taken possession of his body, mind and soul. "The substance, with which I had wanted to experiment, had vanquished me. It was the demon that scornfully triumphed over my will", he wrote. Later, Hoffmann's employer began producing the drug for psychiatrists to use in experiments. While they failed to discover any medical use for it, free samples for experminents were distributred widely. Hoffmann's hallucinogenic trip went on to inspire a counterculture of drug use -- and what happaned on April 19, 1943, became known (and celebrated) as Bicycle Day.

watch THE SLEEP ROOM: The CIA and MK Ultra in Canada, 1998, YouTube
Based on a true story, this production relates the tale of two American lawyers who try to bring the U.S. government to its knees. In the early 1950s, the CIA funds a Montreal psychiatric hospital to do some research on mind control. Thirty-some years later, the patients want justice...
watch MK-ULTRA, The Fifth Estate, March 11, 1980
During the Cold War, the CIA funded a series of secret brainwashing experiments at a prestigious psychiatric clinic at McGill University. No method was too bizarre, including using LSD, hypnosis, prolonged periods of induced sleep, and electrical shocks to the brain. Patients were given the treatment without explanation or consent, and even decades later complained that they had never completely recovered. In 1980, The Fifth Estate exposed the magnitude of the human tragedy with this episode in which two Canadians told their stories publicly for the first time....
Prime Minister Brian Mulroney's wife Mila was born Milica Pivnicki to Serbian Orthodox parents Dimitrije "Mita" Pivnicki and Bogdanka Ilic in Sarajevo, PR Bosnia-Herzegovina, FPR Yugoslavia. Her first years were spent in the city of Sarajevo where her father was assigned to practice medicine by Yugoslav Titoist authorities. In 1956, Dr Pivnicki took a research fellowship position at the Allan Memorial Institute of Psychiatry in Montreal in order to circumvent the strict exit rules in Yugoslavia and get his family out of the country. While his pregnant wife Bogdanka waited to join him, she moved with young Milica back to their hometown of Novi Becej, Serbia. Finally, two years later, in 1958, she and their two children (five-year-old Milica and one-year-old Jovan) immigrated to Canada and joined Dimitrije in Montreal. Mila, the elder child, studied engineering at Concordia University, but did not graduate..... At age 19, she married Brian Mulroney, then a 34-year-old lawyer, on May 26, 1973....
CIA DULLES IN JFK ASSASSINATION (...it's blatantly symbolic that in the JFK movie ELECUTIVE ACTION they gave one of the plotters the name "Foster" (as in Dulles, Secretary of State under Eisenhower and brother of CIA director Allen Dulles who JFK fired for setting up the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and who was subsequently appointed to the Warren Commission - investigating JFK's murder - by successor Lyndon Johnson...)
MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE ASSASSINATION MOVIES (...It's like something out of the movie Manchurian Candidate wherein American soldiers fighting in North Korea are captured by Chinese and Russian Communsits, brainwashed into becoming mind-controlled assassins, and then let go...)
BE LEERY OF LEARY ON JFK (...It's common knowledge that Leary worked for the powers-that-be distributing LSD to the youth of America in a massive brain washing, brain destroying experiment that continues to this day in the form of other so called "street drugs", most recently "crystal meth"...)
LSD A CIA RACKET (John K Vance, 89, a member of the Central Intelligence Agency inspector general's staff in the early 1960s who discovered that the agency was running a research project that included administering LSD and other drugs to unwitting human subjects, died May 27, 2005 of respiratory arrest, it was announced last week. The project had offshotts that extended into Canada...)
THINKING INSIDE YOUR SKULL (...Not even the few cubic centimeters inside your skull is safe! There are at least 100 patented mind manipulation and control technologies that are being used in a variety of ways, right now, today, on the unsuspecting public! How many exist that are "classified" is anyones guess!...)
HUXLEY SUICIDED ON LSD (...His main interest in life seemed to be dropping acid and other mind-altering drugs. He was buddy buddy with the likes of CIA operatives like Timothy Leary who experimented on peoples' children in the sixties with LSD....)
ELECTRIC-SHOCK TEACHING IN BRAVE NEW WORLD and SLEEP TEACHING IN BRAVE NEW WORLD
ORWELLIAN WAR BY DRUGS (...In the meantime, people are shooting cocaine and heroin into their veins on the corner -- with needles provided by the government. Ecstasy and methamphetamines are popping up all over the place with nary a word about their horrors. And we certainly shouldn't forget about all the prescription drugs literally forced on people -- like Ritalin in the schools for anyone who utters a peep....)
