Preview Clip

Manitoba is set to apologize to aboriginals who were taken from their parents and placed with white families decades ago. The apology is thought to be the first in Canada and is directed at victims of the so-called '60s Scoop, which many see as an extension of Indian residential schools. Premier Greg Selinger says the apology, expected next week, will acknowledge the damage done to those taken from their homes and their culture. (Adoptees have been calling for a federal apology and many want compensation for their experience which they say was as traumatic as that suffered by residential school survivors.)
