Canadian Press: Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says a long-awaited apology to victims of the '60s Scoop could come before he ends his decade-long career in office.
Wall announced two years ago an apology would be coming for policies that removed Indigenous children from their homes and placed them with non-Indigenous families.
The practice stripped the children of their language, culture and traditions.
In announcing the forthcoming apology in 2015, Wall said the province did not intend to offer cash to the victims.
Wall says his government is ready to make the formal apology as early as next week, but it's up to First Nations and Metis groups in the province to suggest an appropriate venue.
Wall says he's not expecting to stay on as premier much later than January of next year.
There will be a leadership convention to choose his successor.
After announcing his retirement plans, Wall said his government made headway on improving Indigenous education and employment. But he said he is less than satisfied with the progress and much more needs to be done. (The Canadian Press)
