TWO INDIGE­NOUS MEN SWITCHED AT BIRTH REACH SET­TLE­MENT

Calgary Herald - - CANADA -

The fed­eral gov­ern­ment has reached a fi­nan­cial set­tle­ment with two of four Indige­nous men from north­ern Man­i­toba who were switched at birth and only found out about the mixup 40 years later. Nei­ther Ot­tawa nor the lawyer who rep­re­sents Luke Mo­nias and Nor­man Bark­man would reveal how much money the men are re­ceiv­ing. A Health Canada in­ves­ti­ga­tion last year said the switches were ac­ci­den­tal and a re­sult of stan­dard iden­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­ce­dures not be­ing fol­lowed.
