APTN Face To Face
Manitoba has the highest child apprehension rate in the western world with more than 11,000 children in the child welfare system, 90% of them are Indigenous youth.
Cora Morgan is a fierce critic of the child welfare system. Morgan is the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs’ Child and Family Advocate for First Nations.
Youth in CFS care in Manitoba make up the highest number of runaways, feed the sex trade in Winnipeg and fill the province’s jails. Morgan is fighting for the youth and their families to try to turn things around.
