The case -- which focuses on a period between the 1960s and the 1980s when thousands of aboriginal children were taken from their homes and placed with non-native families -- is being flagged by the plaintiffs' lawyer as a landmark suit against the federal government.
(The Canadian Press/Darryl Dyck) TORONTO -- A class action lawsuit which claims a loss of cultural identity was suffered by aboriginal children adopted into non-indigenous homes during the so called "60's Scoop" was given the green light to proceed by an Ontario court on Tuesday.
"I don't belong there, and really don't belong out here either," he said.
"I hold the federal government responsible for what happened to us after we were apprehended." The federal ministry of aboriginal affairs was not immediately able to provide comment.
So we essentially lost a generation of aboriginal children who feel detached." The federal Crown has argued that the claim for loss of cultural identity isn't known in law, said Wilson.
The release of the Government of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report highlighted that reconciliation and improved health outcomes for Indigenous peoples can only be achieved through a commitment to maintaining and respecting relationships with Indigenous peoples.
None of the class action lawsuit's claims have been proven in court.
"We've had a lot of procedural wrangling and we know that we have a long way to go in this journey, but at least now we're walking a path in the right direction," said Wilson, adding that there are thought to be 16,000 surviving children of the 60's scoop in Ontario.

"This is the first case in the Western world where indigenous persons have come forward and said that our culture is as important as our land claims, fishing rights and hunting rights," said Jeffery Wilson.
