Abuse Lawsuit Filed

Two former students at schools for the deaf in Nova Scotia have filed a lawsuit claiming they were sexually and physically abused at the facilities. Walter Wile of Calgary is now 61 years old. He spent 9 years at both the Halifax and Amherst schools in the 1950s and 1960s and says he was abused at both places. Myles Murphy of St. John's is 59. He attended the residential school in Amherst in the early 1960s. Eight people have joined their class-action lawsuit so far.
