I just barely avoided going there in 1979! My brother spent 2 years: 1980-1982. Luckily the pedophiles were removed by then (not mentioned in this film! It came out years later). There were several like it in Canada (run by the same Anglican Order) but this was the biggest and lasted the longest. Closed in the 90"s. Those canoes weigh about 300+ pounds. The comments there are also worth reading.
A sombre documentary by Canada"s National Film Board. 27 minutes of harsh reality.
