CBC Docs POV View original
Loretta Merritt appears in a new documentary called Born Bad, from CBC Docs POV.

Ontario training schools were a network of provincially operated child detention facilities, established to house children under 16 who were "unmanageable" children or, for example, those accused of a crime or truancy. They operated for decades, with the earliest ones dating back to the 1930s and the last one finally closing its doors in 1984. Simply put, these schools were jails for children.

Born Bad, a new documentary from CBC Docs POV, looks at the legacy of Ontario's training schools through the first-hand accounts of survivors. 

Loretta has represented approximately 200 former Ontario training school residents in civil lawsuits against the Ontario Government.

To watch the documentary, please visit the CBC website.
