Reconciliation is a Monetary (and Emotional) Battle

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.
