Native Child and Family Laws need to be applied in a timely manner by the system without procedural delays. These delays cost families and communities the loss of their children because the time on the clock has intentionally been run down. Demand that mandatory reviews for Plans of Care within a First Nations Context not be removed for consideration by Provincial Judges contrary to Federal Protections.
So that current Amendments to the Indian Act by the Supreme Court of Canada are followed by Provincial Child Protection Agencies. That the Provinces no longer be allowed to circumvent First Nations Family Law where it has been woven into the law of that province; and so that the Provinces do not conflict with Federal Laws and amendments but respect and honour them. our children, our families and our communities.
