Stories about the Ideal Maternity Home on Canada’s rocky East Coast have been the subject of public trials and private whisperings for more than half a century. CBC Television producer and award-winning journalist Bette Cahill has conducted extensive research over the past 15 years and has uncovered the horrifying truth about the Home, its owners, the babies born there and those who died there. The evidence reveals that for sums as steep as $ 10,000, couples were able to choose their infants like they were buying produce at a supermarket. Many of those babies ended up in the United States. The chosen babies were the lucky ones. Hundreds of others were left to die and were buried in wooden butterboxes.
