CWN Editor's Note: “The Kuper Island Industrial School was in operation from 1889 to 1975 and has been referred to as ‘Canada’s Alcatraz’ because of its remote location and difficulty to escape from,” according to the report. (An anthropology professor who has conducted research on the schools has offered historical context on the deaths.)
