Justin Trudeau government to announce payout of $800M to Indigenous victims of ’60s Scoop

TORONTO — The Canadian Press has learned that the federal government has agreed to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to Indigenous survivors of the ’60s Scoop.

Sources say the agreement includes a payout of between $25,000 and $50,000 for each claimant.

The national settlement — estimated at $800 million — is to be announced Friday by Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett.

    Maybe they’ll spend it on clean drinking water infrastructure instead of vodka and slot machines.

      Thanks, but I like clean water, to add to my vodka.

    When do the white Canadians who created all the wealth and civilization in Canada get their payout for losing their cultural heritage because of government multicultural policies?

    • Good idea!

      I think it’s their own fault. No children + no balls + no anger.

    It is a piece of cake to be overly generous with other people’s money. “Victims” crawl out of the woodwork when the scent of money is in the air, even when there were no real victims here. The alternative would have been to place them with another Native family on the reserve where they would have encountered the same situation, drunkenness and abuse, and had that been done they would be claiming victimhood for that. Granted at least in that case they would have been victims.

    Who is Justin fooling…… the Liberal lawyers will get $700,000,000.00 of it. Just like his $60 billion Infrastructure spending where 80% of it will be wages for the Union workers and just 12 billion on the actual tangible items .
    Ontario Liberals spent over $150,000,000,000.00 with not 1 major project for what the public uses.

    I told someone that since the 1960’s i have seen Public transit and the Gardiner Highway in Toronto get dragged out every Election to expand it . Now the Gardiner is coming down while we are hearing all three levels of Government makes transit promises.
    But we know how it works. After the Elections we find out that each Government reveals the clause that the other 2 have to contribute. John Tory will run on the promises as will Wynne and then in 2019 Justin will promise money and then it all starts over again.

    But there is always lots of money to illegals and muslims refugees.

    As long as I feel like an indigenous person, can I claim victim hood too?

    So they sued the government because the government took them out of an abusive household and put them with non-abusive families?

    When in the hell will we have victim-hood for suckers like me. Worked all my life . Once collected EU for two months and had half of it clawed back. Taxes? Paid a pant-load of them and all on time. Worked till I was seventy and I gotta listen to this crap.
    Pardon the language, but fuck the lot of them! Including that dimwit wearing the feathered hat.

      “but fuck the lot of them!”

      This country needs a revolution, but the peasants have forgotten how it is done. Until you start seeing politicians hanging from lamp posts nothing much will change.

    Hell, for fifty thousand dollars even I might vote for Justin.
