Committee rejects call to investigate discarded residential-school compensation claims


The head of the committee established to oversee the process for compensating people who were abused at Canada’s Indian residential schools has rejected a call to investigate why government lawyers were allowed to use a legal technicality to have many of the claims thrown out.

Mayo Moran, chair of the oversight committee of the Independent Assessment Process (IAP), was asked in writing by Charlie Angus, the NDP’s indigenous affairs critic, to examine the IAP’s decision to discard what is estimated to be at least 1,000 claims on the basis of what is known as the administrative split.
