Five years ago the Parliament of Canada voted unanimously for the Shannen’s Dream motion to end the chronic underfunding of First Nation children—however years after that historic vote the children are still waiting for justice.
Worse, we are losing children every single day in northern communities as they are denied the most basic services that other kids in Canada take for granted.
It’s gotta stop.
What this government and this nation need to understand is that saying nice things isn’t the same thing as making real change. Reconciliation is about doing the hard work that is needed to make our nation whole.
No child in this country will be left behind. We will make that happen.
