"Canada failed to take reasonable steps to prevent thousands of on-reserve children who were placed with non-Indigenous families from losing their Indigenous heritage during the Sixties Scoop, an Ontario judge ruled Tuesday. The ruling in the long-running and bitterly fought class action paves the way for an assessment of damages the government will now have to pay.
