ALG Partner Catherine Fagan cited in Lawyers Weekly Article on the Sixties Scoop Decision

Our partner, Catherine Fagan, was recently cited in an article in the Lawyers Weekly on the recent decision by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice regarding Canada’s responsibilities to the Indigenous children who were removed from their communities and placed in non-Indigenous care during the ‘Sixties Scoop’, a period between 1965 and 1984 for the purposes of the court case.

As discussed in our previous blog post, the Court found that Canada breached its duty of care to these children by failing to take reasonable steps to protect their cultural identity.
