Jagmeet Singh on Govt’s Appeal of First Nations Child Welfare Ruling

In Saskatoon, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh speaks with reporters about the federal government’s decision to appeal a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal that orders federal compensation to First Nations children who were taken from their homes and put into the on-reserve child welfare system. The Tribunal ordered the government to pay $40,000 to each child who was denied essential services when they were put into the underfunded welfare system. (October 4, 2019) (no interpretation)
