The preteen girls would take turns with the towel, in the bathroom of St. Anne’s Residential School. One at a time, they would wrap it around their throats and pull it tight. “We called it getting high. We’d get dizzy, lightheaded”, one of them said, nearly two decades later. This was revealed on August 3rd 1993, during an interview with Ontario Provincial Police investigators, in Room 251 of the Howard Johnson Hotel, in London, Ont. “We looked forward to it”, said the residential school survivor, whose name is redacted in the OPP transcript. “It was an escape.” The woman, by then in her mid-30s, was describing her horrific “nine-year stay” at the school on Fort Albany First Nation, near the James Bay coast, as part of an indecent assault investigation of one of its former nuns. What she needed to escape from, she told investigators, were the constant strappings and whippings and the sexual assaults by a man, she knew only as: “the gardener.” “This shouldn’t have happened to us. They’re God’s workers, they were suppose to look after us.” The transcript of the interview is among “thousands of pages” of OPP records from a sprawling investigation into abuse at St. Anne’s, obtained by CBC News.
