For Edward Ambrose and Richard Beauvais, something always felt wrong. The two men have always faced identity issues, feeling like they didn't exactly belong, or 'fit in'.
More than 60 years later, the puzzle pieces finally came together for the two 67-year-olds when they learned that they were accidentally switched at birth.
The first suspicions were raised for the two when, funnily enough, they each did seperate at-home ancestry kits. For Beauvais, back in Sechelt, B.C., the results came back saying he was Ukranian and Jewish- when he was actually raised Metis.
For Ambrose, in Winnipeg, it was rather his sister who perfomed the ancestry kit on herself, when she discovered she had a brother living in B.C. Things all made sense once the two men learned they were both born on June 28, 1955, in the same hospital of Arborg, Manitoba.

Beauvais and Ambrose's lawyer tried to have Manitoba's health Minister meet with the two men but unfortunately, the province's lawyers responded that they had "no legal liability and would offer no compensation", according to a report made by The Canadian Press.
And, believe it or not, this is the third case of baby switches in Manitoba!
