Even more importantly, on 24 December 1946, when Harriet Nahanne says she witnessed Maisie Shaw being murdered at the Alberni Indian Residential School, Maisie Shaw was actually in the West Coast General Hospital, where she had been under the care of Dr N.J. Jones since 18 December. See her death certificate, signed by both Dr Jones and the Indian Agent, N.W. Garrard, which states that she died in the West Coast General Hospital on 26 December 1946 of acute rheumatic pericarditis after 8 days in the hospital.

The tale told by Harriet Nahanne of Maisie Shaw’s death, and repeated by Kevin Annett and others, is thus false in every respect.
