Sexual abuse, stolen babies and a prostitution ring. Those are just some of the things Lynda Ann Parish claims were going on when she was at the Willingdon School For Girls in the late '60's. She's filed a lawsuit and is proposing a class action lawsuit for all the girls who were put into the Burnaby school. She's going after damages of 625 million dollars. The facility, which was turned into the Willingdon Youth Detention Centre, was closed by the NDP in 1973.
