Sixties Scoop Survivors Take Canada to Court

Indigenous child removal 
​- an interview with Raven Sinclair​

The so-called 'Sixties Scoop' removed thousands of Aboriginal kids from a number of provinces over that decade and beyond. But, this week, it was an Ontario court that heard the latest phase of a class action suit seeking compensation for what survivors say Canada denied them: rightful access to "Aboriginal customs, traditions and practices." Our guest is Raven Sinclair, associate professor of social work at the University of Regina, and a Scoop survivor herself.
