August 16, 2013, Following link (see below) describes apology from (Canada’s) Presbyterian Church to Canadian Scoop Victims placed in Kenora Residential Schools.

As recently as August 1, 2013, there are ‘no plans’ to apologize to victims-survivors of Canadian Scoops. To date, mandate of TRC-Canada only acknowledges victims-survivors of Canadian Scoops who were kept within Canada; The Mandate does not acknowledge those who were placed in USA (and west Europe). TRC-Canada has recognized only (1) USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops; based on TRC-Canada recognition of his status as a victim of Canadian Scoops-genocide, the same individual achieved his USA Citizenship.
