Canada: Indigenous people sue Canada for taking them from their homes as children
Vice News – August 26, 2016
This week, in a downtown Toronto courthouse, Indigenous people who were taken away from their families as children began what they hope will be the final leg of a journey for justice from the Canadian government. They are the victims of the “Sixties Scoop,” a period in which government workers took children from Aboriginal reserves and placed them into white homes across Canada, the US, and Europe – often under the pretense that doing so was in the children’s best interest.
