Nation to Nation
As 2017 dawns, Cindy Blackstock continues an old struggle in her case to end the discrimination of First Nation children.
Nation to Nation host Jorge Barrera speaks with Blackstock about the latest legal maneuver to force Ottawa to comply with the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruling that found the government discriminates against First Nation children by underfunding child welfare services.
NDP MP Charlie Angus, a potential NDP leadership candidate, speaks with Nation to Nation about his belief First Nations are being excluded from a new health accord between Ottawa, the provinces, and territories.
Ottawa is also facing a deadline from researchers for First Nations organizations across the country to fix the specific claims file. Nation to Nation speaks with Jody Woods, research director for the Union of BC Indian Chiefs.
