Sixties Scoop Settlement Information Session in Lethbridge Thursday

The goal of the session, presented by the Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta, is to provide information for those affected.

Southern Alberta First Nations, who may be entitled to compensation from the Sixties Scoop proposed settlement, can attend an information session in Lethbridge Thursday (Nov. 30). It's being presented by the Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society of Alberta and will run from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Holiday Inn. Society President, Adam North Peigan, says last month the federal government announced it had come to an agreement in principle with survivors worth some $800 million. Under the proposed agreement, all First Nations and Inuit children who were removed from their homes between 1951 and 1991, and lost their cultural identities as a result, are entitled to compensation. North Peigan says there will also be a presentation from a law firm when it comes to the legal side of the settlement. - Tina Giesbrecht
