The Sleep Room’s Missing Memories by Ray Conlogue Quebec Arts Correspondent, Montreal - Cameron he Sleep Room’s Missing Memories by Ray Conlogue Quebec Arts Correspondent, Montreal “A new CBC [Canadian Broadcasting Corporation] miniseries tells how mental patients in Montreal were once subjected to CIA-sponsored brainwashing….recalls a series of barbaric experiments conducted on mental patients over a nine-year period beginning in 1955…the “psychic driving” technique invented by psychiatrist Ewen Cameron took on a science-fiction quality when it was revealed in 1977 that the CIA had helped finance the work. The CIA thought it had potential as a brainwashing technique to be used on “enemies” of the United States during the Cold War….a human catastrophe that stripped more than 300 people of their identities….she sued Ottawa instead, and forced the government to pay $100,000 to each surviving Allan patient.” http://web.archive.org/web/20030402163532/www.serendipity.li/cia/slprm.html

This week on the fifth estate - “The Sleep Room” 1/6/98 - When Canadians first learned that CIA brainwashing experiments had been carried out on Canadians… in Canada… with the knowledge of our government… at the Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal …the story of Cameron’s experiments and the victims’ struggle for justice have been made into a riveting movie, to be broadcast on CBC Television… For the victims of The Sleep Room, the horror has never really ended. VELMA ORLIKOW (patient of Dr. Ewen Cameron): The man who I had thought cared about what happened to me didn’t give a damn. I was a fly, just a fly. VOICE-OVER ANNOUNCER: Revisiting Canada’s infamous Sleep Room. LINDA MACDONALD (patient of Dr. Ewen Cameron): I was…had to be toilet-trained. I was a vegetable. VOICE-OVER ANNOUNCER: In the 1960s, Dr. Ewen Cameron conducted CIA-funded experiments on troubled Canadian patients he was meant to help… MacIntyre: …the CIA caved in the day before the trial was to begin. They settled out of court for $750,000 - at the time it was the largest settlement the CIA had ever awarded. http://web.archive.org/web/20021225185605/http://www.radix.net/~jcturner/980106-Fifth-Estate.htm

Ottawa finally aids brainwashing victims
Broadcast Date: Jan. 28, 1984 (digital clip) It sounds like a science fiction plot or a horror movie: A front organization for the American CIA sets up shop in Canada to engage in mind control experiments. But it's no fiction, it's the discussion on the floor of the House of Commons and among lawyers for the Department of External Affairs. Canadians caught up in the research, including a member of Parliament's wife, may finally get some action from the government in their pursuit of answers and compensation. http://archives.cbc.ca/society/crime_justice/clips/15125/

The Sleep Room, A CBC MINI-SERIES discusses CIA and Canadian government funding on Canadian psychiatric patients in the 1950’s and early 1960’s, using LSD and electro-shock treatments. CIA funding helped pay for Dr. Ewen Cameron of Montreal’s Allan Memorial Institute experiments. Cameron believed patients’ mental illnesses could be cured by putting the patient into a coma (the sleep room) by using LSD, drugs and repeated electro-shocks to the brain. Linda Macdonald from Vancouver, talks about how she was in a drug-induced coma for 86 days when she was 26 and was subjected to 100 electro-shock treatments and massive LSD doses. When she came out of it, she had no memory. It was destroyed. Other patients had similar or worse experiences. Nine of 127 known survivors sued the CIA. They won the suit. The Canadian government also paid token compensation. (Information from Peter Worthington - Sun Media Newspapers)

Veterans say CIA tested drugs, mind control on them By Jay Price - Staff Writer 1/11/09 Instead of equipment testing, though, the Onslow County native found himself in a bizarre, CIA-funded drug testing and mind-control program, according to a lawsuit that he and five other veterans and Vietnam Veterans of America filed last week. The suit was filed in federal court in San Francisco against the Department of Defense and the CIA. The plaintiffs seek to force the government to contact all the subjects of the experiments and give them proper health care. The experiments have been the subject of congressional hearings, and in 2003 the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs released a pamphlet said nearly 7,000 soldiers had been involved and more than 250 chemicals used on them, including hallucinogens such as LSD and PCP as well as biological and chemical agents. Lasting from 1950 to 1975, the experiments took place at Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland. According to the lawsuit, some of the volunteers were even implanted with electrical devices in an effort to control their behavior. Rochelle, 60, who has come back to live in Onslow County, said in an interview Saturday that there were about two dozen volunteers when he was taken to Edgewood. Once there, they were asked to volunteer a second time, for drug testing. They were told that the experiments were harmless and that their health would be carefully monitored, not just during the tests but afterward, too. The doctors running the experiments, though, couldn't have known the drugs were safe, because safety was one of the things they were trying to find out, Rochelle said. "We volunteered, yes, but we were not fully aware of the dangers," he said. "None of us knew the kind of drugs they gave us, or the aftereffects they'd have." http://www.newsobserver.com/news/story/1362418.html
