Richard Bergeron: Orphanage was a "concentration camp"
"All concentration camp systems are alike: Daily life is dull and repetitive."
That's how Projet Montréal leader and mayoral candidate Richard Bergeron begins the fifth chapter of his book, "The Orphanage."
Speaking to Ric and Suzanne on CJAD 800, Bergeron stood by the analogy made in his autobiography, saying that "it is a concentration camp. Like a prison. The authority is so strong, the rules are so tight and if you do something bad...you are sure to be punished."
"It was, objectively, like a concentration camp," he said again, but added that "it's not what we saw in World War II. But I use this expression to say that it was very strict."
