    Hi Sylvia:

    It would be good if you could look into Fr. Arthur Lavoie of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. He assaulted many indigenous children at St. Anne’s Residential School in Fort Albany, Ontario. Also Father/Bishop LeGuerrier and Bishop Belleau, same location.

    Many documents can be found on the CanLii website if you type in St. Anne’s.

    Thanks for all of your great work! Sue
