Class action suit says Canada used Indigenous people as medical 'guinea pigs'

A Saskatchewan man has launched a class-action lawsuit, alleging the federal government is responsible for experiments and the inadequate medical treatment of residential school students and Indigenous patients at hospitals and sanatoriums across the country.

Merchant Law Group filed the suit last week in the Court of Queen's Bench for Saskatchewan on behalf of John Pambrun, a resident of Lestock, Sask. and one of thousands of children the suit claims were mistreated.
