NAN responds to Sixties Scoop compensation deal

NAN responds to Sixties Scoop compensation deal”

LeFrank said that while the government has officially apologized for residential schools, another apology may be necessary in the future for the Millennial Scoop, which LeFrank calls a continuation of the Sixties Scoops.

The agreement, which amounts to about 20 000 victims, will be announced on Friday by the Trudeau government, was able to confirm The Duty.

"People affected by the ´60s Scoop have told us that the loss of their culture and language are the worst kinds of harm that they suffered", Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett told a press conference, flanked by Scoop survivors and tribal chiefs. The final amount is less than the $1.3 billion Brown Martel had sought for victims of the Ontario Scoop in which at-risk on-reserve Indigenous children were placed in non-Aboriginal homes from 1965 to 1984 under terms of a federal-provincial agreement. Her suit sparked more than eight years of litigation in which the government fought tooth and nail against the claim.

A further $75m will go to legal fees related to the national settlement. Bennett referred to the Sixties Scoop as a dark and painful chapter in Canada's history.

The full details of the settlement must still negotiated and it has to be approved by the court.

The most known cause - the only one that has been authorized for a collective action - is brought by Marcia Brown Martel in Ontario.

Similar lawsuits have been filed in British Columbia, Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.

LeFrank said the government hasn't provided enough money to Indigenous communities to ensure children don't have to be put into care and that these communities are underfunded, compared with non-Indigenous communities.

The agreement is created to settle 18 lawsuits brought about the harm done to aboriginal children who had been entrusted to non-aboriginal families in the 1960s.

Over the course of about two decades, thousands of indigenous children were sent to mostly non-indigenous homes in Canada, the US, New Zealand, and Australia - often without the consent of their families.

By the 1980s, Canadian provinces began changing their adoption policies after indigenous leaders and others condemned the practice as a form of "cultural genocide".
