May 12, 2013, In USA today it is Mother’s Day. Though not celebrated in Canada, for victims-survivors of the Canadian Scoops who were not kept within Canada but rather placed in USA, a.k.a., USA Placed Victims-Survivors of The Canadian Scoops, Mother’s Day is a day when probably more poignantly than on any other day of the year, the few thousand USA Placed Victims-Survivors of The Canadian Scoops are forced to contemplate the relationships with their biological mothers that they were deprived of when Scooped and placed in USA foster care and adoption system by Canadian Government in coordination with the head of the indian bands-tribes.
To date, TRC-Canada only recognizes 1 USA Placed Victim-Survivor of The Canadian Scoops. This individual’s mother died not knowing whether her child was dead or alive, still in Canada or placed elsewhere. She died before he knew he was a USA Placed Victim-Survivor of The Canadian Scoops.
