The Sechelt First Nation says the judge hearing a lawsuit aimed at getting compensation for residential school day students is sending a clear message to the federal government — they won’t put up with delays.
This, after the judge rejected the government’s application to force the Sechelt and T’kemlups First Nation from Kamloops to provide more information.
Sechelt Chief Calvin Craigan says the government has been trying slow down the case and drive up the costs.
Craigan and Chief Shane Gottfriedson of T’kemlups say time is running out for the survivors. 3 from Sechelt and one from Kamloops have died since late last year.
It’s now expected the Courts will decide on certifying the suit as a class action late this year or early in 2015.
