Leilani Muir-O’Malley was an inspiration for all Albertans

I wish to express my sincere condolences on the passing of Leilani O’Malley. Some of you might know her better as Leilani Muir, a woman who was sterilized as part of a provincial eugenics program that ran between 1928 and 1972.

I wish to express my sincere condolences on the passing of Leilani O’Malley.

Some of you might know her better as Leilani Muir, a woman who was sterilized as part of a provincial eugenics program that ran between 1928 and 1972.

She was also a resident of the Michener Centre until she left in 1965. In 1995 she took the province to court for wrongful sterilization and won. She spent many years after that advocating for victims and keeping the history of that dark time alive. Her dedication in bringing the truth to light is an inspiration for all Albertans. Through her conviction we witness the victory that truly became her legacy. Thank you Leilani O’Malley for the courage to stand up to the odds and prevail, not only for yourself, but for those you championed.

I am proud to join countless Canadians as we pay respect to your memory.

MLA Kim Schreiner,

Red Deer North
