The federal government is trying once again to quash human rights tribunal hearing looking at First Nation on-reserve child services funding.

This is the third time Ottawa has turned to the courts in an effort to kill the case.

Only this time the tribunal has already started and is looking at allegations the feds discriminates against First Nation children because of lack of funding.

APTN National News reporter Annette Francis was at the federal court in Ottawa Wednesday.
