February 5, 2016, But does this call from the International Community include consideration for mothers and children of Canada Scoops Victims Placed In USA?
Requests, a.k.a., ‘Calls’ are Reprimands. For several years the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) has considered requesting Government of Canada address the rights of indigenous women, especially in regard to Canada Scoops and including victims of Canada Scoops who were trafficked out of Canada and placed in USA and west Europe. The submission of a request within the international community is significant; it’s totally inappropriate, within the international community, to submit a request on the record without having 1st exhausted all other off the record strategies and without 1st getting permission to do so from other members of the General Assembly including often enough the government that will receive the request. Within the international community a request or as they more benignly put it a ‘call’ like this is considered a reprimand.
That Canada Scoops is also often referred to as Sixties Scoops/1960’s Scoops and Seventies Scoops/1970’s Scoops is misleading, The Canada Scoops took place throughout decades, beginning 1960’s lasting up through early/mid-1990’s.
It’s not clear if this most recent ‘urging’ from the international community and the commitment from the Canadian Government in December 2015 referred to in the article, (see link below) The Jurist – University of Pittsburgh School of Law, to ‘further a national inquiry’ includes consideration of specifically the circumstances and rights of women and their children who as victims of Canada Scoops were, after being scooped, trafficked out of Canada and placed in USA and west Europe.
To date, only 1 victim of Canada Scoops Placed in USA has been recognized by TRC-Canada and another different Victim of Canada Scoops Placed in USA has been recognized by Canada Court system.
