August 26, 2013, Some Canadian Scoop Victim groups excluded from TRC-compensation are now one step closer to receiving compensation via their filing of civil-class action suits. See links provided by TRC-Canada below.
These suits represent Canadian Scoop Victims who were kept within Canada but not placed in residential schools.
To date, USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops continues to be ‘excluded’ by TRC-Canada in regard to compensation. Civil-Class action suits are forming.
Though appeal of TRC-Canada compensation applications submitted by ‘The 1st and Only USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops to be recognized by TRC-Canada’ has been discouraged by his own local, legal counsel (lower Fairfield County, Connecticut, USA) due to their own lack of familiarity with Canadian Scoops and truth & reconciliation commissions, the immigration and other legal benefits The 1st USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops has already received – as a TRC-recognized USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops – should be granted to all USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops, i.e., based on recognition by TRC-Canada of his status as victim-survivor of Canadian Scoops, this individual received his USA Citizenship and all violations of federal laws he committed associated with his immigration status were relieved. In short: the extent of administrative-recognition of USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops by TRC-Canada only goes up until victim compensation claims are filed.
