Manitoba's Metis Federation says its people are being left out of an apology coming this week for aboriginal children who were taken from their homes and placed with non-aboriginal families. President David Chartrand says no one from the Manitoba government consulted with the Metis or formally invited him to the apology on Thursday. He says Manitoba appears to be blaming Ottawa for what is known as the '60s Scoop when it was social workers who seized aboriginal children and placed them with families as far away as the southern United States. (Manitoba is set to apologize Thursday to aboriginal adoptees in what is thought to be the first by a Canadian province.)
