Ironic... I guess since they have suffered so much at the hand of government mandates already. Perhaps it's just one more thing.....
In Canada, Indigenous women were forcibly sterilized under various historic government policies including Alberta’s Sexual Sterilization Act, which was in force from 1928, when the eugenics movement was gaining momentum, until 1972. At that time Indigenous people represented about 2.5 per cent of the population but made up 25 per cent of those who were sterilized, according to Auger.
A large number of sterilizations happened in Indian hospitals, where many women were forced to sign while in labour or otherwise medically vulnerable.

the Sexual Sterilization Act of Alberta was substantial and long lasting. Over 4800 people were authorized for sterilization under the Act, with more than 2,800 persons sterilized under its mandate and its two amendments (1937 and 1942). The Act was repealed in 1972 by the newly-elected provincial government of Peter Lougheed.
