Last month APTN reported that 102 Indigenous children died in Ontario’s child welfare system. It’s a tragic and infuriating look at how the system fails Indigenous children and puts their lives at risk. It’s also a story about unconscionable inequality in a system that is supposed to protect vulnerable children. Cindy Blackstock joins to talk about that story and about taking the government to court on behalf of the rights of Indigenous children.
