I do not believe any child should be taken from their real parents unless it is of a home of abuse or harmful to that child. otherwise they should be with their parents.

Offiziell, hat sich Kanada zwar für den Genozid, an there eingeborenen Bevölkerung entschuldigt, aber dieser Staat, führt wohl, sich an den Pioniergeist erinnert, die rassistische Politik längst vergangen geglaubter Tage, konsequent fort!

I know of a child held in Ministry custody in a caucasion foster (care) home, where he is not introduced to, nor encouraged to live within the birthrights of his own families native cultural ways.He is treated as an equal to white children... (White children come from many different cultural backgrouds too).

I honestly don't know why the government can still be doing this shit! They are still stealing our kids! Is this not how it was with residential school? Will the government once again have to compensate for ruining lives? When it is way too late? We do love our children! This is abuse of the worst kind! How can this be stoppped.

For Child and Family Services BC to remove children from their parents in Coast Salish Territory is Kidnapping, and should be treated as such under Federal Laws. Its time for Justice! No more abuse or violence by social workers or legal aid workers with lengthy court delays when it concerns native families, who have no supportive agents, and struggle under legislative poverty that absolutely oppresses native families to such a great degree they cannot feed their families or provide for them....

Many native families use the food bank, poor families helping poor families every single month to make it to the end of the month, the free store's are used because there are no funds available to families for beds or cribs. Education or Employment initiatives are marginal. Fishing and hunting has become marginal because of abuse from the Province with NO Treaties in Place. Time for Justice! Time to Act and Support our Native Families that face absolute Racism and Discrimination "Don't take our children" there are NO TREATIES IN PLACE; ITS CALLED "KIDNAPPING" and should be treated as such...The Child Welfare Act of BC holds no jurisdiction over Coast Salish Territory! Please support our native families who need your help and support. huy ch qu Sharon,

Being a Residential School Survivor, I can say no more but to sign this, I was born Kwaqutl, never lived with my community as one, but will make amends to this in helping others. GiLaKasLa

so true, stan; i think gov't ought to be compensating survivors & families of survivors for the loss of connection to our cultures; they say it is impossible to 'measure' the loss of culture, but i say "BS"!! it's not about measuring loss, it's about restoring what they destroyed. i know they kept records of their destruction, so they need to pony-up and quit perpetuating their denial. this is for both federal and provincial governments AND churches.

That is what I keep saying it is residential school all over again. The systems are making the mothers like robots, so that they could get their children back. My greatnieces children are in the system, just because people told welfare that they have bed bugs on their couches. O m god what are they going to think of next. this person keeps telling the welfare, lies and they keep taking the children, why don't they check on the people that tell these lies
