Chief Marcia Martel (Brown), our Representative Plaintiff, and her response to the government’s latest attempt for more delay, more litigation. Please view and share with others: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfs6kfhOMQc&t=2s
CLICK HERE to read the document Canada’s lawyers gave to the Honourable Justice Belobaba on Friday, June 10, 2017.
In response, on Wednesday, June 14, 2017, the Case Management Justice told the parties the case was proceeding, as scheduled. The hearing to determine the amount of compensation for survivors to loss of cultural identity will proceed in Toronto on October 11th, 2017. Liability will not be re-opened for more litigation.
Mark the date of October 11th, 2017 in your calendar. It is a public hearing. Let us honour, with our presence at the hearing, the courageous journey of the survivors, their walk through two federal governments to re-claim their nature and re-unite with family, community and nation.
Our lawyers asked the Case Management Judge on June 14, 2017 for the opportunity to attend with Canada’s lawyers before another judge to try to settle our case. But, Canada’s lawyers said they would not do that, and the Court cannot order parties to try to settle.
Canada’s Minister and Prime Minister say the words of reconciliation, but they do the opposite.
“Dear Minister, you are still standing in the dark…”
