Chronicling Ontario's Residential Institutions

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Ten years ago, the doors of Ontario's last residential institution closed. It was the final chapter in decades of public policy that saw people with developmental disabilities isolated from the community, and where some experienced abuse and neglect. Catherine McKercher's brother Bill was a resident of one of those institutions. She joins The Agenda to discuss her book, "Shut Away: When Down Syndrome was a Life Sentence."
