After TRC-Canada Concludes: New York Times Mentions Canada Scoops, 60’s Scoops, Truth & Reconciliation Commission – Canada

June 12, 2015  New York Times Op-Ed (see below).

From perspective of USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops, it’s lacking because:

1. NYTimes didn’t publish anything on this truth & reconciliation commission and the underlying ‘genocide’ until after the Truth & Reconciliation Commission – Canada concluded, if it weren’t for 1 current and a few building civil class action lawsuits, people knowing about it wouldn’t matter, wouldn’t be of any assistance to the victims, i.e., the public push would have been really useful while the truth and reconciliation commission was occurring, whereas after it’s concluded, not as much

2. The article fails to mention that at minimum a few thousand victims of the same Canada Scoops/60’s Scoops for which this truth & reconciliation commission was originally commissioned were not placed in residential schools within Canada after being ‘scooped’ but were instead placed in adoption and foster care system, in particular via Pearl S Buck’s Welcome House adoption agency (Pearl S Buck is the Pearl of Pearl: The Musical set to premiere at New York City’s Lincoln Center, August 2015), in Pennsylvania, USA. The 1st and only USA Placed Victim-Survivor of Canada Scoops to be recognized by Truth & Reconciliation Commission – Canada having received his US Citizenship and expedited on basis of his being a recognized victim of that particular genocide, (see Taber Gregory, Notable Scoops, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sixties_Scoop)

3. Wayne Snellgrove is, while never recognized by TRC-Canada, class action representative for 1 of what will be a few civil class action suits representing the interests of USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops and their birth families.
