From the 1960s-1980s, thousands of Indigenous children, like Marcia, were taken from their homes. They lost their families, names, languages, identities. On February 14, 2017 the court found Canada liable for the harm suffered by Ontario Sixties Scoop survivors. Chief Marcia Brown Martel, lead claimant in the case, has a different vision. She has proposed a settlement solution, where each survivor would contribute to three reconciliation projects: a public memorial, a healing foundation for survivors across the country, and a scholarship to support reconciliation research. There is a path out of the dark and into the light. It’s time for Canada to move forward.
