According to a confidential source at the Greater Niagara General Hospital in Niagara Falls, Ontario, in mid-July a 16-to-18-week-old baby girl weighing one-half pound received no care and died two hours after birth. The mother did not want to see her baby.

Hospital staff were advised that a death certificate had been issued and that the infant was buried from Henry’s Funeral Chapel in Niagara Falls. However, Gord Minor, acting funeral director of Henry Funeral Home, denied that such a burial took place. He went into his files and came up with only two baby funerals since his employment there in September 1988.
