The fall sitting of the Saskatchewan legislature came and went without an apology for the 60’s scoop.
Earlier this year the Premier indicated it would happen during or before the fall sitting of the assembly but that did not happen.
Premier Brad Wall says it has not been forgotten, simply delayed.
“This is truly just a matter of getting the scheduling right,” he said. “We have agreed that it needs to be done, we have offered it, we’re going to do it.”
The Premier says he discussed the matter with FSIN chief Bobby Cameron when the two were together in La Ronge earlier this month.
The 60’s scoop involved the widespread adoption of aboriginal children into white homes. It is the subject of several lawsuits, including a class action suit launched by the Merchant law group.
