Trudeau Government Hushes Up CIA Brainwashing Of Canadians

In March 2017,  Canadians, who were subjected to brutal CIA brainwashing experiments in the 1960s received an out-of-court settlement from the Trudeau government.

In the event that some of the victims were deceased, the compensation went to surviving family members.

The present government has, however, followed a policy of hushing up the matter.

Beneficiaries of the out-of-court settlement were required to sign a non-disclosure agreement.

The lawyer representing the survivors and their families feels that such a gag order might discourage other victims and families from coming forward.

"They don't want to have to deal with more applications," said Alan Stein to the CBC.

Revelations that Canadians were mentally tortured first surfaced in the late 1970s.

Four Fifth Estate documentaries subsequently exposed the role of the CIA and the federal government in funding brainwashing experiments during the Cold War.

Patients were often put to sleep for month at a time, and administered drugs.
