APTN Face To Face
Dr. Cindy Blackstock is the Executive Director of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society and a lifelong advocate for Indigenous youth.
She has been the face of a decade long battle against the federal government. One year ago, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruled in her favour and ruled the federal government discriminates against children on reserves. During the legal challenge, it was also revealed the government was spying on Blackstock.
