This video was produced by the First Nations Child & Family Caring Society of Canada.

HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Cindy Blackstock explains the reasons behind the Human Rights complaint filed against the Canadian government for racially discriminating against First Nations children in 2007. Underfunding of child welfare and essential services undermine First Nations child wellbeing, but for six years, the federal government tried to keep the case from being heard. In 2013, the case finally went before the Tribunal, and a ruling is expected in 2015. In this video, Dr. Blackstock also describes the Remedies the Caring Society is requesting from the Tribunal and talks about how you can help.
