November 30, 2013 – UPDATE on this 11/21/13 entry will be posted sometime during Week 2 December 2013.

November 21, 2013, While referring to an article published in 1990, when we are entering the year 2014, isn’t the norm, because the search for the – at least (and this blog’s research capabilities are very limited) a couple of thousand – Canada Scoop Victims placed in USA, a.k.a., USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops, continues with neither media attention in USA nor success in actually locating all (or even a majority) of the victims, I’m re-posting this 1990 article (see link below) and will have an update on it next week. As it stands, those involved with this article believed that Manitoba Indian Chief Vincent Pierre only located (1) of the (355) USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops taken from his reserve, Roseau River Reserve, Manitoba; More: though the paper trail originating in Canada lead Chief Pierre to believe the Scoop Victims were placed in the Salt Lake City area, the (1) he located was in fact adopted into Massachusetts, USA and not Salt Lake City.

December 4, 2013 – Hearing To Decide Whether Canada Can Appeal (Again)

November 28, 2013 § Leave a comment

November 28, 2013, On Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at Osgoode Hall, 130 Queen Street West, 10am, hearing will take place to decide whether or not permission should be granted to Canada to appeal the September 27, 2013, decision of the Honourable Justice Edward Belobaba of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice; within that decision he certified the 60’s Scoop case of cultural genocide as a class action under Ontario’s Class Proceedings Act. The judge rejected the argument of the Attorney General of Canada that what happened is not worthy of a legal-wrong case.

The September 27, 2013 decision was 2nd time a judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice has accepted the case as one that should go forward, that does plead a proper legal wrong, and a case that ought to proceed as a class action.  The first judge was the Honourable Justice Perell who made His decision on May 26, 2010.

Criteria of A USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops

November 20, 2013 § Leave a comment

November 20, 2013, It’s become important for this blog to point out that not every child adopted out of a Canadian Indian family and subsequently placed into a non-North American Indian family in USA (or west Europe) is a victim-survivor of Canadian Scoops. Some ‘Canadian-North American Indian’ children were placed into adoption and foster care by their own biological families, and the subsequent adoptions were legitimate and the children’s immigration status in USA (and west Europe) documented-legalized.

USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops, on the other hand, are just that, i.e. children – now adults – who were abducted, a.k.a., scooped, by Canadian Government officials in coordination with who were then the Elites of the child’s biological indian band, and placed in USA without the consent and amidst the out-and-out objections of the biological parents.

The paperwork necessary to distinguish an individual as a USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops, while enormously difficult to obtain, is obtainable. The paperwork is there, it’s accessing the paperwork that is difficult – to the point that victims likely don’t have the know-how or resources to obtain it – but, nevertheless, no matter how difficult it is to obtain that paperwork, it is necessary to obtain that paperwork if a person wants to prove that they are a USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops and not simply a child who was adopted out of Canada into USA (or west Europe).

Hopefully the Governments of USA and/or Canada will soon provide a regulatory framework that makes obtaining the necessary documentation obvious, easier and, immigration-wise, safer for those that believe they are USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops; in the meantime, if the same governments would provide guidance to their government-legal offices that victims reach out to in attempting to obtain this documentation that would be helpful. Without the framework or guidance, attempts by these possible Scoop Victims  to achieve their paperwork is totally dependent on the discretion, intelligence, knowledge, compassion of each individual they speak with – which, in my experience, because the regulatory framework and guidance is not there for this particular group of genocide victims, can vary greatly from one office to another.

Every Perspective – Canadian Scoop Victims & Their Families

November 19, 2013 § Leave a comment

March 16, 2014 (re-posted, November 19, 2013), (originally posted, August 19, 2013) – In process of researching, drafting, submitting and lobbying applications of the USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops, within (1) file all perspectives of Canadian Scoops are represented, i.e.,

1. the biological father, furious that his child was taken and that he was never told if his scooped child was dead/alive or where he was placed, this father wants CAD $1M per year that the child, now a 46 year old adult, was ‘missing to him’. The scooped child, now 46 year old man, has made no effort to visit his biological family, and only reaches out to them when he has needed information and paperwork necessary to confirm his status as a Canadian Scoop Victim, that paperwork assisting his successful USA Citizenship applications and other ‘legal’ issues.

2. the biological sister who was baby sitting the (4) children of the household who were scooped (only 1 of the 4 was not kept within Canada but rather placed in USA adoption & foster care system, a.k.a., USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops); as adamant as her sorrow is that he was taken that way and that her family suffered wondering where he was, she is ‘happy’ and ‘grateful’ that he was placed in a healthier environment where he received regular medical care, education, etc., i.e., more: she says the childhood home that he lived in had no food and the children were starving, the biological parents were alcoholics and that for those reasons a biological aunt had filed the complaint with the head of the tribe, a ‘hearing’ was held and via that hearing the children were scooped. Ultimately, she explains, she is grateful that they were removed from that home and that he has a better life because of it.

3. the biological sister who was not there when the children were scooped agrees with their father, ‘the children never should have been taken from their parents’ AND she understands her sister’s position, i.e., that he is better off because he was removed. The other siblings who were removed but found by the father and brought back home, continue to live below poverty line and 2 died of alcoholism.

4. the biological mother passed away due to depression related alcoholism never having known that her son was alive and living a healthy upper-middle class lifestyle in USA.

November 13, 2013, Thought the issue of NFL team name, Washington Redskins, isn’t related to USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops or TRC-Canada, because it’s of interest to so many reading this blog, below is link relative to that issue:

Reconciliation is a Monetary (and Emotional) Battle

November 12, 2013 § Leave a comment

November 12, 2013, (Originally Posted September 16, 2013), Below is link to article shared by Truth & Reconciliation Commission-Canada and published by The Vancouver Sun describing the financial pressures participation in TRC-Canada places on victims-survivors.  TRC-Canada itself acknowledges that in spite of the, some reports state, hundreds of millions of dollars that it received, it remains inadequately funded. A result of insufficient funds, USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops (and those victims-survivors of Canadian Scoops placed in west Europe) are not going to be acknowledged within the mandate of TRC-Canada, i.e., their applications requesting recognition by TRC will be rejected and victim compensation will either be rejected or so small as to be insulting.

With those rejections on file and in hand indicating all remedies within the TRC have been  exhausted, civil courts may offer victims-survivors of Canadian Scoops a forum within which to have their tragedies truly adjudicated.

Good Luck!
