Sixties Scoop adoptees want to scuttle $800M settlement, say ‘it’s just not gonna be enough’

A group of Indigenous Sixties Scoop adoptees is trying to scuttle a proposed $800-million settlement announced last year by the federal government, CBC News has learned.

“Our mission right now is to put a stop to this,” said Priscilla Meeches, one of the Manitoba-based plaintiffs in the national class-action lawsuit.

“We need a better settlement than this because there’s too many of us out there and at the end of the day, it’s just not gonna be enough.”
