Hundreds of women notified of class-action suit against Samson Cree

 

November 3, 2020



Bonnie Bruno's mother lost her Indian status and membership with Samson Cree Nation when she married the non-status man she loved.

Four decades later, Bruno's pursuit of justice could benefit more than 400 Indigenous women and their children in similar circumstances.

They're being notified this month that they are part of a new class-action lawsuit that challenges decades of discrimination they have faced from their own First Nation.
