Eric Robinson is Manitoba's Minister for Aboriginal and Northern Affairs. He believes that it's time Canada make an official apology and offer compensation to the 18,000 Aboriginal children in Canada who were taken from their families and communities during the period of the 1960s through the 1980's. This policy of removing "at risk" children in Aboriginal communities and placing them in non Aboriginal families has come to be known as the '60s scoop. He calls it Canada's "dirty little secret". Reporter Coleen Rajotte recently interviewed him in Winnipeg.
