$12 billion lawsuit

Earlier this year the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), advocated their proposal; to provide each of the 90,000 former Indian residential school students living in Canada, with $10,000 and an additional $3,000 for every year an individual attended one of the schools.

The federal government has even go so far as to plan a meeting this fall to discuss the lump sum payment idea. But I guess the AFN decided not to wait that long.

The AFN has filed a $12 billion lawsuit against Ottawa on behalf of the 90,000 former Indian residential schools students. If successful, each of the former students could receive as much as $130,000 each.
