A Métis brother and sister separated decades ago when they were small children had an emotional first meeting in Toronto Monday.

Ted Fraser, 63, and Debby Poitras Precius, 56, were both taken from their birth mother in Saskatchewan as part of the so-called "scoop" in the 50s and 60s, when native and Métis children were taken from their birth families and placed in non-native homes.

But now that the siblings have met, they say all they want to do is have a big family reunion to catch up on a lifetime of memories.
