Cindy Blackstock and AFN file non-compliance motions against federal government

All members of Parliament stood in support of an NDP motion recently that called for a $150 million investment in First Nations child welfare.

It also urged the government to adopt Jordan’s Principle, which says no First Nation child should suffer denial, delay or disruption of health services because of jurisdictional feuds.

According to Cindy Blackstock, not much has happened since then.

That’s why her organization, along with Assembly of First Nations and Chiefs of Ontario have filed non-compliance motions with the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal.
