Description

'A Matter of Conscience'  follows the lives of Brenda and Greg, born at similar times. Brenda was taken in the Sixties Scoop from northwest Ontario and given to a White family; Greg is the only child of a small town Ontario couple. Their lives intersect in unexpected ways and their story weaves politics, injustices, and atrocities into a story of love, despair, redemption, and reflection. The book includes background readings to contextualize the issues presented in the work: The Sixties Scoop, A Human Rights Response to Discrimination and Violence Against Indigenous Women in Canada, Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (1996), and Truth and Reconciliation Commission Final Report (2015).
