Canada to pay $600 million to indigenous people

Clip: 10/08/2017 | 9m 47s

For a period between the 1960s and 1980s, a Canadian government program forcibly separated indigenous children from their families and put them up for adoption around the world. In a bid to address that injustice, Canada on Friday agreed to pay $600 million in legal settlements. Ian Austen, who has been covering the story for The New York Times, joins Hari Sreenivasan via Skype from Ottawa.
