SETTLEMENT REACHED IN LAWSUIT

A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit filed against the Government of Saskatchewan and others by Kathleen and Michell Ross. The lawsuit is related to abuse the women allege they suffered while in foster care as children.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Government of Saskatchewan will pay the plaintiffs a total of $560,000.

"This situation involved a number of complex factors," Community Resources Minister Buckley Belanger said. "However, the government accepts responsibility and deeply regrets the circumstances that occurred while the Ross children were in foster care. Our primary responsibility is the safety of children. We continue to work with our partners to help ensure safe environments that meet children's needs."
