"We Cannot Accept Excuses": Cindy Blackstock on Justice for First Nations Children

Why It Matters

Social services on First Nations reserves are “severely underfunded” by the federal government, says First Nations human rights activist Cindy Blackstock, which puts Canada behind on achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. The problem requires Canadians to pay attention, and to advocate for a more just, inclusive future. This is the first story in our partnership with the Waterloo Global Science Initiative (WGSI) in the upcoming Together|Ensemble conference.
