InFocus: Kids with disabilities on-reserve still getting less

APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie:

If a motion passes unanimously in the House of Commons, does anybody hear it?

That’s the question advocates of equal access to health care are asking.

Jordan’s Principle was adopted in 2007.

It was a motion vowing that children with disabilities who live on reserve, would be treated the same as all children who live off reserve.

But eight years later a McGill University study reports that those on-reserve kids still have poorer access to health care services.
