Statement on Sixties Scoop Ontario Superior Court RulingFeb 16, 2017
All of us at Reconciliation Canada extend our love to all the individuals that were a part of and affected by the Sixties Scoop — a dark period in Canadian history that continues to impact thousands of individuals and communities to this day.
This week, an Ontario Superior Court judge ruled that the federal government failed to protect the cultural identity of Indigenous children who were forcibly taken from their homes and communities during the Sixties Scoop era.
With this landmark ruling, we take a step forward in the reconciliation process. May the survivors celebrate this liberating court decision and begin to find healing and reconciliation in your lives.
‘Namwayut – We Are All One.
