February 6, 2015 § Leave a comment
February 6, 2015, Because the mandate of TRC-Canada, as it was originally written, was less restrictive than it is now, we were able to obtain TRC-Canada recognition and on that basis USA Citizenship for the 1st USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canadian Scoops to achieve both. However, once and probably because his applications were successful, the mandate was then edited to exclude those victims of Canada Scoops who were not kept within Canada but who were instead placed in USA and west Europe AND/OR to exclude those who were, after being scooped, placed not in residential schools but in foster care and adoption system.
This is an article I posted a year or so ago and which others have recently again asked for link to because it describes current efforts to again expand mandate of TRC-Canada so that it also, again includes these victims of Canada Scoops who were not kept within Canada but who were instead placed in USA and west Europe.
