Canada: Sixties Scoop continues: Advocates say B.C.’s child welfare system plagued by racial inequity
CBC News – October 10, 2017
Child welfare advocate Cindy Blackstock says there are more Indigenous children in the child welfare system today than there were in residential schools or affected by the Sixties Scoop. “We are seeding the ground for what will be an apology 10, 20 years down the road. In B.C., it’s particularly egregious in the child welfare system as the federal government did not increase prevention funding to help families stay together in 28 years,” Blackstock said.
