April 20, 2013, TRC-Canada is holding statement gathering events in Montreal next week, see link: http://www.montrealgazette.com/life/Truth+Reconciliation+Commission+comes+Montreal+next+week/8263013/story.html
While USA Placed Victims-Survivors of The Canadian Scoops are permitted to provide their victim-survivor statements to TRC-Canada, they do so at their own expense and without any support from TRC-Canada, i.e., operators manning the telephone support lines responsible for providing guidance and support to Scoop Victims are only able to answer questions and offer support to those victims of Canadian Scoops who were kept within Canada; they are not capable of addressing the specific needs of those victims who were placed in USA.
TRC-Canada still has not scheduled any statement gatherings in the USA thus making attending the meetings in person cost prohibitive for most USA Placed Victims-Survivors of The Canadian Scoops.
The 1st USA Placed Victim-Survivor of The Canadian Scoops to be recognized by TRC-Canada was able to use that recognition to support his application for USA Citizenship granted on basis of his being a victim of that particular genocide.
