On Tuesday, Ontario Superior Court Judge Edward Belobaba rendered a landmark class action decision in Brown v. Canada (Attorney General), siding with survivors of the Sixties Scoop. The case centered on the removal (the scoop), by Ontario social services agencies, of on-reserve Aboriginal children from their families. These children were placed either in foster homes or for adoption, between the years 1965 and 1984.
