While I grew up, not much was spoken as to the why of my mother’s state. She was always crying, always low energy, often in bed or on the couch, on tranqs and anti depressants that I can assume she continued while she was pregnant with all her kids. I knew she went to the notorious and now exposed hospital called the Allen Memorial in Montreal, run by the now famously sadistic psychiatrist, Dr. Ewan Cameron.
There was never any mention made of any connection to her state and that she was a patient of this mad doctor. I knew she had had shock treatment, but not how much or for how long. I knew that she had left the hospital before completing her treatment, but no explanation how. She said she was not part of the LSD experiments. She suffered in silence with a brutal and insensitive husband, my father and a disengaged, dispassionate natal family.
One day in the late 90’s I watched the CBC documentary, The Sleep Room, and got an education on the practices of this hospital. I immediately wrote the government to tell them my mother was also part of these experiments and was entitled to the measly 100,000 compensation the first court case settled on for some of the victims. This was a few years before she died. I got a letter back that said it was only for certain victims of a certain experiment. My mother was already in a nursing home, almost at the end of her wasted, long suffering life. She was not in any condition to help me with her case.
It has always bothered me that my mother never received proper treatment from her family or my father or the criminals who perpetrated this act. Nobody seemed to give a damn about her condition and blamed her for it. I still do not understand why not one of her brothers or sister ever stood up for her. She never received any help from her doctors or therapists either.
Needless to say, my mother’s life was very sad and I was helpless to help her. It is still very sad and troubling, compounded by the early death of my brother, Michael Atkin and the institutionalization of my sister when she was 19 years old. Is there a relationship between the tragic events of my brother and sister’s life and the abuse my mother suffered? I believe there is. And what about me? Fortunately, I am still alive and of sound mind to finally tell this buried story and hopefully get some answers.
|This is my mother, Jane Crunican, getting shock treatment.|
My mother died on Feb. 2nd 1999. She was only 67 years old. She had very little. She lived on a pittance after she separated from my father in subsidized housing that I had to fight to keep her in, after the building tried to evict her. I was successful in keeping her in this housing as I entreated advocates to help her in her area, as I was in BC and she was in Ontario. Curiously, her own family did nothing to help her when this happened and they were close by.
Saying goodbye to her in April 1993 when I left Toronto for good to start over in Vancouver, was the saddest thing. I had to lie to her because I was so broken up about her despair over my departure. Although we had had rough patches, I was her lifeline and her only connection in Toronto. I told her I was only leaving for 6 months, whilst knowing I was leaving for good. I saw her twice after that before she died.
For some reason, I googled for information about her case in July of last year, 2013. I learned there was a new court case that won compensation for other victims of Dr. Ewan Cameron and his creepy entourage. I emailed the lawyer just to find out where he got the information about these victims. I wanted to know about my mother. Where could I find her records? Within one week, this movie came out, called State of Mind, the Psychology of Control. Produced by Infowars and directed by James Lane. Within the movie at approximately the 1:03:24 mark, depending on which version you view, , a terrified woman is getting shock treatment presumably for the first time, by the good doctor himself. It is my mother.
Dec. 29 2016 update: Here she is at 1:39: 38 in another version of the movie:
Neither James Lane nor the info wars team returned my numerous and persistent inquiries about where they got this footage. I assume it was got through the freedom of information act in the states, which is a clear indication that she was part of the MK ultra program.
Now, I really need answers.
