A new documentary investigates the stories behind the "'60s Scoop"
Tonight, over at the Bronson Centre, there's a premiere of the trailer for The Sixties Scoop: A Hidden Generation. And then, a fundraising campaign to make the rest of it begins.
The Sixties Scoop refers to Canadian child welfare polices where 16,000 aboriginal children were removed from their homes, and placed with non-indigenous foster and adoptive families.It's a policy that was in place until the 1980s. Colleen Cardinal is the filmmaker behind the project, and hers is one of five stories that will be featured in the documentary.
