What the Ontario court victory means for 60s Scoop Survivors across Canada – InFocus



APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie

The Ontario Sixties Scoop Class Action court victory is so far the only one of its kind in the Western world.

The Ontario Superior Court ruled on February 14th, 2017 that Canada is liable for loss of cultural identity by those Indigenous 60s scoop plaintiffs who were placed in non-Indigenous homes.

Now other 60s Scoop Survivors, like our guests in this show, are looking at what it could mean for them.

In this edition, Jeffery Wilson, the lawyer representing Ontario Class Action lead plaintiff, Chief Marcia Brown-Martel, explains his view of where we are in light of the cultural genocide endured by tens of thousands of children who were scooped from their families.
