Nation to Nation
Ten years ago Thursday, Cindy Blackstock filed a human rights complaint against Ottawa for discriminating against First Nation children by underfunding child welfare services on reserve.
Last year, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruled Ottawa was discriminating against First Nation children.
Blackstock, who heads the First Nation Child and Family Caring Society, sits down for an in-studio interview with Nation to Nation.
The Nation to Nation political panel also debates whether the Justin Trudeau Liberal government’s words on First Nation child welfare match the actions required by the Human Rights Tribunal.
