In 2012, it was our immense privilege to help tell the story of Leilani O’Malley (nee Muir), whose lawsuit for wrongful sterilization helped crack open a wall of silence surrounding Alberta’s eugenics program. Invisible Child was one of our most beloved shows, and that strength sprang from Leilani’s immense spirit, frankness and irrepressible humour. She was an inspiration, turning decades of abuse and neglect into strength and compassion.
Leilani passed away on March 12th, in her home. I will miss her forever.
