Carolyn Bennett, Canada's Minister of Indigenous Affairs, stated that damages awarded to 60s scoop survivors will be awarded on a case-by-case basis. The settlement comes after an Ontario judge ruled that Canada failed to protect the culture of First Nations children when they were taken from their families and placed in non-Indigenous homes. The minister feels negotiated settlements with each individual best represent the judge's ruling because no two cases are the same.
