Ten years after former prime minister Stephen Harper’s historic federal apology to residential school survivors, former students of St. Anne’s Indian Residential School in Ft. Albany, Ontario are still fighting to have their stories told.

Ft. Albany sits along the Albany River just inshore from James Bay in Northern Ontario.

Many survivors have accused the federal government of suppressing evidence of widespread abuse – including the use of an electric chair on children.

APTN Investigates video journalist, Cullen Crozier examines the history behind one of Canada’s most notorious residential schools to find out why are survivors are being re-victimized by the federal government?
