Several years, my great nieces, children have being taken for people telling fibs to the workers. I know my great nieces, they do not deserve, having their children taken just because people don't like them and tell lies about them. One of the times their children were taken, her daughter died in the system, they blamed my great niece for the death, she was not there. My God check your information, before messing up the families lifes. I get so angry when I hear the children are taken again....

It is exactly the same. Please stop taking our children away. The people that care for them are not doing it for love, they do it for money. I know for a fact that my great nieces childrens should never have being taken. If they are taken, phone a family member not a person they don't know. I pray that we will get all our children, grandchildren back, some day, sometimes it is too late.

I have lived it and have friends whose child has been incare since bith.

I have lived it and have friends whose child has been in care since birth, and what was most schocking to me was the very fact that his own band social worker wanted to adopt him out of province, regardless of the fact that they are native to the present reserve here and that the father is of the west bank first nation. When will we see justice for the innocents who have no voice. The parents are very caring and...

When will we see justice for the innocents who have no voice. The parents are very caring and loving and will provide a loving and stable home for their child. Will the child keep being shuttled from foster home to foster home, and when will the parents ever get him back. Will they have to die first which will by then be too late for the child.

I have seen some of the destruction that the CCAS has caused. They destroy lives! It's terrible, and something must be done to stop it!

I came from a broken home, but never knew it.. My Mother always made sure my brother and I came 1st until we were out of the home, then she had a life of her own. But I got sent to my Grandmothers, my Fathers Mother, the Father I never knew because he disappeared, whenever my Brother got sick which was about 3 times and each time my Grandmother would board me at a County facility in Portland where I heard terrible stories that made my family feel normal to me. I feel strongly that even a semi-disfunctional family is better than none.

I am a Residential School Survivor, and I know the challenges of being moved about. The children need stability in their lives.

I myself grew up in the system, taken away perminintley from 9 years old! seperated from my family, I've been through so many homes I stopped counting after 18 homes counted! Today, I hear sooo many horror stories about the system still running the same Bull**** after 21 years! So so sad & corrupt :(

I grew up in many foster homes throughout my childhood. Though I was eventually adopted, I suffered every form of abuse imaginable by our "wonderful foster families." Though a couple were good, most were awful. I found my birth mother when I was 18 and she is furious that I was subjected to so many horrible things. I was also denied my culture and was not taught anything about my Native American heritage. Though it is true my parents could not take care of me at the time, I was better off...

I was also denied my culture and was not taught anything about my Native American heritage. Though it is true my parents could not take care of me at the time, I was better off with my family than the hell that the state threw me into. I would never wish this on any child, regardless of race but unfortunately, this crap happens every day. These children have voices, but they are rarely ever heard. They have to trust the adults in their life that are supposed to take care of them and protect them. We need to do something to change this. They are the future of this world.
