Robert Doucette of Saskatoon has filed a human rights complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission against Indigenous and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett.
Doucette describes himself as a Metis survivor of the sixties scoop. He alleges that Canada and its representative, Minister Bennett, have engaged in discriminatory actions against Metis scoop survivors. Doucette alleges that Bennett has violated the Canadian Charter of Rights, and the Canadian Human Rights Act, and is disregarding a Supreme Court decision that declared Metis and Non-Status Indians to be Indians under the Constitution, putting them under federal jurisdiction. Doucette says he is devastated that Metis have been left out of the sixties scoop agreement.
