February 10, 2014, This evening we were informed that the biological father, Louis Desjarlais, of the 1st USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops to be recognized by TRC-Canada passed away. Louis aggressively searched for his son, Henry, from the moment Henry was abducted, a.k.a., scooped, until Henry was discovered decades later in USA. Once discovered, Louis made every effort possible to force TRC-Canada to recognize Henry as being the victim of the same Canadian Scoops that Henry’s siblings were recognized as being victims of, even though Henry, unlike his other siblings who were abducted/scooped at the same time (same day, driven away in same car) but kept within Canada, was placed in USA.
It is heart wrenching to know that Louis didn’t live until March 27-31, 2014, when the TRC-Canada will be holding session in the relative territory, Edmonton, because that was the best opportunity available for Louis to be reunited with his son Henry for the 1st time since Henry was abducted in 1974.
Truth & Reconciliation Commission – Canada needs to do more and more quickly for those victims of Canada Scoops who were placed in USA and west Europe. The parents of these children spent decades searching for them but don’t necessarily have several more decades to wait for the opportunities to be reunited.
