Before October 29, Justin Trudeau must decide if he will continue to fight Indigenous kids in court. The NDP is clear, he should stop fighting and compensate First Nations children, now.
After years of underfunding schools and ignoring the needs and safety of Indigenous youth and kids in care, Justin Trudeau continues to hide behind his empty promises to Indigenous kids – while denying them their rights in court.
It is simple. A government committed to true reconciliation with Indigenous people doesn't take kids to court.
Canadian courts have ruled that Justin Trudeau’s government “willfully and recklessly” discriminated against Indigenous kids.And appeal after appeal by the Liberals is forcing Indigenous kids, their families, and entire communities to fight a costly and heartbreaking legal battle.
While Justin Trudeau keeps trying to fight the ruling, Indigenous kids continue to face chronic underfunding to their education, school and homes infested with dangerous mould, and unsafe drinking water for many communities across the country. Enough is enough.
Indigenous Leaders are clear, actions speak louder than words. By not appealing the CHRT decision further, Justin Trudeau can show through his actions that he is committed to justice for Indigenous children and families.
