Canada’s Justin Trudeau to appeal reparations payments for indigenous youth

Ottawa, October 9 (RHC)- In Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he will appeal a court ruling from September that found indigenous youth were “willfully and recklessly” harmed under Canadian child welfare policies.

The appeal could block some 2 billion Canadian dollars’ worth of reparations for at least 50,000 indigenous youth who were removed from their homes as children and impacted by the severe underfunding of federal child welfare programs for the indigenous community.

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruled last month the federal government had purposely discriminated against indigenous youth, and ordered the government to pay $40,000 Canadian dollars to each child who was removed from their homes.
