Mr Brewer made a complaint in 1974 about the sadistic goings on to the boys at Cobourg ......
Mr William Brewer put his name and his Job on the line in August 1974,to speak out against sexual abuse in Ontario Training Schools and Mr G.R Thompson instead of investigation, he decided to ignored it and fired Mr Brewer in 1975 "Shame on you" G.R Thompson you are a disgrace to your profession. There was clearly a coverup of this sexual violence against children in the 1960s. In view of what we know now, the reports back in the mid-1970s to who is now the Deputy Premier, the existence of this misconduct in public, provincially run training schools like the one at Beattie House at Cobourg, what is being covered up by the Liberals now in 1990?Mr Glenn Thompson, who was informed in 1975, about the abuse at Brookside Training School at Cobourg ,Ontario.
But he chose not to take action.
This Website was created to expose the sadistic abuse in Ontario Training schools, no matter what the ethnic background was.in the 70s , 80s, till this day ....Many Children have suffered and left too carry the scars around till this day..
Sooner or later you're going to realize, just as I did, that there's a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path
Abuse is Abuse no matter your background, they all have one thing in common they experiences the same pain .Abuse knows no Ethnic boundaries. I will created a list of people who I have contacted to help expose these shameful acts and let us down.
Action speak louder than words ,I say to you. There is no such thing as wisdom without compassion. People with cold hearts posing as wise men are the true false profits of our age. Often their "wisdom" is utilized to enrich themselves materially, or to gain power and fame."Wisdom" isolated from compassion is a treacherous form of ignorance. It is destructive. It gives false hope only to betray in essence.Wisdom can never be in service of greed. It cannot serve power. It does not exist in the company of the callously affluent.
Brookside Training School
You have heard the expression if walls could talk?
Beginning in 1925, training schools operated in various forms as reformatories for wayward children, often as young as eight and often for "crimes" as minor as truancy. Section 8 of the 1965 Training Schools Act, which gave the province the power to seize custody of any "unmanageable" child regardless of the wishes of his or her parents, was repealed in 1977. Many schools continued to house children aged 12 to 18 until the mid-1980s, when passage of the Young Offenders Act formally signalled the end of the training-school era in Canada.
The walls of Brookside Training School of Cobourg ,Ontario would be screaming out in terror......
You will hear a story of one man still standing. He hopes that many more will come forward,To make they voices heard."The Day has come to say; Enough is Enough" We will not stay silent any longer.
The aim is to connect the dots , to show total neglect by the Ontario Government to ignore complains made by members of staff Of the abuse of many boys which could have been prevented .But the Government did not take notice, and brushed this dirt and filth underneath the carpet .Most of us know you only can hide stinky things for so-long ,till the real stench becomes so overwhelming even Febreze can't Eliminate these Odors.
If you research either Brookside, Pine Ridge , or Hagersville, on the computer you can't find a lot of information about these school. Could it be because they were Government run.?? I found a lot of article about the Catholic abuse, and how the Native people were abused, Ontario training school abuse has hardly been highlighted or reported . "Convenient"
This story about Wayne Ackerman, who was brutalized, raped ,tortured, mentally and emotionally victimized as a boy of 13................... By filthy individuals employed by the Ontario Government.
Sexual Abuse Victim,Wayne Ackerman calls out his Canadian Government, about the sadistic abuse he suffered and thousands of other boys like him from 1970s., in Brookside Training School , Pine Ridge ,Hagasville in Ontario Canada
Wayne entered the system of Brookside Training School on February 1st 1971 at the age of just turned 13 . By Judge V.L Stewart
This day, Wayne's life changed for ever. From a 13 year old young boy, his next 3 years, will be filled with Sadistic abuse, Physical abuse, sexual abuse , and torture.By the hands of Staff employed by the Ontario Government, His story has to be told, for other people to come forward, so finally the Federal Government of Canada can be held responsible for these crimes.
Boy's were forced to masturbate each-other at Brookside , while a( Staff Member by the name of Peterson ) photographed the children performing sexual acts ;If they refused they were beaten or forced to masturbate staff Members at Brookside.
Peterson and other Staff Members forced the children to perform oral sex on each-other .Children often refused, and reseived beating's by the Peterson and other staff Members who were involved.
The Children including Wayne, were regularly instructed to clean the basement of the school,.On many occasions, staff members would follow them and forced those children, including Wayne , to perform and take part with sexual acts on staff Members .Staff Members names were, Peterson, Smitty, Thomas , Wilson, Jones, participated in this horrendous acts...Imagine if that would have been you at age 13,
This children(Boys) were frequently and relentlessly, Physically assaulted and battered and psychologically abused, .
Wayne and the other children(Boy's) were violently stricken all over their bodies, sometimes with the use of various objects
Punched around the head, in the body and in the private parts.
On a few occasion, Wayne attempted to defend himself against the abuse by staff members , but it did not last long because the staff members , became more vicious in their abuse.
I will apologize for not writing most of the acts which were preformed on the Boys and Wayne , since it would bring perverts to this site too get their kicks ....I am trying to write this as tasteful as I can, but these attacks were vile ,gruesome, beyond what you can imagine .
The staff members at Brookside specially the ones already named were the ringleaders would various and demeaning punishment in their efforts to control the children (Boy's) at Brookside .Children (boy's) inculding Wayne were placed in solitary confinement , In a room which was called the hole. without natural light or artificial light.Prior of begin placed in this room , staff members would remove all they clothing and the boys would remain nude for the duration of time.
At one time Wayne remembers sharing the solitary confinement with 2 other boy's of 12 to 14 years old.
One boy was so afraid of the dark, Wayne believes he died of a heart attack. Wayne and the other boy had to share the room with a dead boys body for about 5 days,because it was so hot in the room,the boy's dead body started to swell up, and both Wayne and the other boy were afraid it would explode.
5 day's sitting naked in a dark room,
Without any staff member ever coming to check on the condition Of the boy's and without food or water.
Boys including Wayne were always threatened by members of Brookside Staff and would be frequently reminded of the fate of some other boys who did not comply with the demands..
WARNING >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ABOUT THE NEXT Paragraph...
During the period of mid 1971 to January 11/73 while Wayne was at Brookside Training School , he and around 30 other boy's were forced to Dismemberment 7 boys bodies, who died at the hands of the violent acts which were preformed by the staff at Brookside Training School .
The Boys were forced out of their beds in the middle of the night, carry the dead bodies behind the school at the river stream and expose of them.
Since the boys who were at Brookside were already classed by the Courts and Society as Juvenile Delinquent, the dead boy's were classed as runaways , and no one cared about them.
The boys who were forced to dismember the bodies , were threaten by the Staff to keep their mouth shut, and if ever one word would be De vouched, they either meet the same fate as the dead boy's or members of they family would be killed.
So can you imagine,what kind of burden these boy's had to carry?
Wayne finally after been transferred to Pine Ridge in November 1973 which has his own history of violence , finally went back to his parents house in October 23, 1975.
Wayne confided in his mother in 1976 what actually took place in these School's , His mother begged Wayne to secrecy not to tell his father. Wayne's Mother was worried what her husband would do if he would find out. In her own words she said; If your Dad would find out, he would go with a gun and kill each one of the BITCHES AT BROOKSIDE ...and she could not let him spend the rest of his life in Prison, since he was the provider for the household . So Wayne kept quite......and his Dad never knew and found out.
Wayne till today suffers from the memories, of his time in Brookside,..... the torment he was put through, will never leave him till he dies. It took Wayne about 7 years to tell me the whole story has pushed Wayne to tell me the whole story, In 2004 Wayne got a payout to silence him from the Ontario Government Wayne did not want to take the money, and wanted it to become public knowledge the suffering which he and many , many other boy's endured . Also he did not want the dead boys be forgotten. But he was pressured to take the judgment under duress, But would like to take the Federal Government to court ,for failing to protect him from the Ontario Government and failing to act , when knowledge of this acts were made known to the Government in the 60s and 70s like my research uncovered.
Since many other boys who went through the Ontario Training School system , either became drug addicts , alcoholics ,died, or committed suicide.
He tried to get the story told by the Toronto Star, Toronto Sun Newspaper, National Post, Globe& Mail City TV, CBC in 2005 ,) But hopes one day the truth will come out
Theo Fleury was the biggest disappointment in my eyes , He had no time for the abuse victims of the past,Ignored all emails or requests too speak about abuse victims of the past ..He would have been the perfect person too bring this into the public arena.
just to show people Wayne was at Brookside underneath is the form and underneath is the famous Superintendent G.W Pollard
who knew about the abuse, and took part in the cover-up of the Boy's been abused
Video with Wayne's court documents ,
Raymond Arthur Elder he was the only one till today which was charge and convicted of a crime
He is only to tip of the iceberg .It is time for the Canadian Government to come clean http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/man-admits-he-had-ward-perform-oral-sex-on-him/article4159156/
