In October 2018 Koskie Minsky LLP commenced this class proceeding on behalf of the representative plaintiff, David Weremy against the Province on Manitoba in respect to the Manitoba Development Centre (“MDC”).
MDC has been operating in Manitoba for decades housing persons labelled as developmentally challenged, delayed or disabled.
The plaintiff alleges that members of the class were physically, sexually and psychologically abused at MDC. It is alleged that the Province of Manitoba breached its fiduciary and common law duties to the class through the establishment, operation, and supervision of MDC. In particular, it is alleged that the MDC failed to care for and protect class members, which resulted in loss or injury, including psychological trauma, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
The class sought to be represented is all persons who resided at MDC between July 1, 1951 and the date of the certification order.
