Over a year ago APTN National News first told the story of how the federal government had been keeping a close eye on Cindy Blackstock.

This happened after Blackstock, head of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society, filed a human rights complaint against the government for allegedly discriminating against First Nation children.

It got so bad the politicians promised an investigation.

But Blackstock hasn’t heard a thing.

APTN National News reporter Annette Francis has the story.
