The federal government of Canada is being accused of "identity genocide of children targeted at Indian families and communities in Ontario".
The accusation is part of a class action lawsuit on behalf of at least sixteen thousand Aboriginal people who, as children, were either adopted or put in foster homes and "were systemically denied the opportunity to preserve their identity".
The lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of Ontario in February also accuses Canada of "breach of its non-delegable fiduciary obligation, duty of care and protection of aboriginal rights". The suit seeks damages of $85,000 for each claimant - $1.36 Billion.
