Being as political and, as a result, malleable as Wikipedia is, these references to victims of Canada Scoops placed in USA could again be deleted (as it was in 2011) but for now, they are in. Wikipedia certainly isn’t the most reliable source of information but it does run the gamut of what information is circulating out there on a topic, and that is in and of itself has some utility.

February 16, 2015, (See link to article below). TRC-Canada requests Vatican revoke 15th century papal bull that is foundation of ‘explorers rights to conquer the new world’ be revoked, the legal implications.
If you read the comments, some really express the challenges, now innate prejudices that this group of genocide victims are up against when it comes to the ‘reconciliation’ part of the ‘truth & reconciliation’ mandate, i.e., human nature, everyone is good with telling the truth but actually making effort to correct damages, more than a bit of a lag, unfortunately.

February 14, 2015, Another article announcing 1st class action suit filed on behalf of Victims And Survivors of Canada Scoops And that includes Canada Scoops/60’s Scoop Victims and Survivors placed in USA, a.k.a., USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops, link below.
The 1st and Only USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canada Scoops to be recognized by TRC-Canada, and on the basis of their recognition, also The 1st to receive his USA Citizenship, is not included in this suit for a few reasons, 1. he isn’t from this province so he wouldn’t be included in this suit, he would be included in a separate suit., AND 2. his legal advisors in USA have advised him, as he has told me, that these lawsuits are ‘never going to happen’ that ‘Canada Scoops never took place’, that his placement in USA ‘must have been legal (because otherwise, they say, it could not have happened),’ i.e., they seem to be suffering from that brain disease, not unlike Mad Cow, but something more like what ‘Ahmadinejad‘ suffers from.

February 11, 2o15, (See Huff Post – Canada Link Below). We are reaching out to the author of this Huffington Post – Canada article so that a correction can be made, i.e., in article, the journalist expresses that NO Canada Scoop Victim placed in USA has been recognized by Truth & Reconciliation Commission – Canada; That is not true, The 1st Victim of Canada Scoops placed in USA was recognized by TRC-Canada in 2012, and his files via TRC-Canada are archived within National Archives of Canada. More: it was only based on TRC-Canada recognition of him as a Victim of Canada Scoops placed in USA that this man then, subsequently and as a direct-result, received his USA Citizenship, the review and approval expedited, his violations of federal law, ‘dropped’ by USCIS. And, by ‘dropped’ I just mean, straight up over-looked because in light of him being a victim of a genocide we were able to position his experience so that those violations of federal law didn’t matter so much to the USCIS judge as his status and experience of being a recognized victim of a genocide, albeit not a genocide that until this man’s application was approved, USCIS had recognized.
This USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops’s file includes form that indicates his consent to have his file, including his name and photographs, to be published in public domain, i.e., in the media.

February 10, 2015, Current mandate of TRC-Canada doesn’t seem to explicitly express inclusion of victims of Canada Scoops that were placed in USA or west Europe, it also doesn’t seem to explicitly express inclusion for those victims who were kept within Canada but placed in adoption and foster care instead of being placed in Indian Residential Schools within Canada.
