Happy Halloween!

Today is Halloween, and while this holiday is about costumes, watching scary movies, and eating mountains of candy, safety is always a top priority.

 

Parents are asked to have reflecting lighting and glowsticks on costumes and check candy for any sharp objects. People in vehicles are asked to slow down when driving in housing communities.

 

Young adults who are going out without their parents for the first time should go with a group of friends.

Access to Psychiatric Assessments Close to Home for all Manitoba Children

Amanda Lathlin, a member of  The Legislative Assembly of Manitoba(who represent The Pas), was able to present a Private Members Resolution into the house calling upon the provincial government to provide psychiatric assessments closer to home.

 

Lathlin said The mental health supports that are available across Northern  Manitoba are not sufficient. Access to psychiatric assessments has been far from universal, and because of this, children living in remote areas with mental health conditions go undiagnosed which can create a downfall in the child’s development.

 

Leading to poor grades and attendance in school,  the fear of being putting in the foster system, unemployment, financial problems for the family, troubles with law enforcement, self-harm, or sadly worse, suicide.

 

The best psychiatric assessments are only available in cities like Brandon and Winnipeg; making it impossible for families and children the help they need living in rural/remote areas.

 

Lathlin said she knows firsthand the outcomes of the lack of support, these force families into placing their loved ones in the care of the RCMP to receive medical and psychiatric assessment which is often involuntary on the part of the patient.

 

This issue has not been resolved yet in the house, as time expired on the day that I introduced it. The resolution garnered support when first introduced, and Lathlin will continue to fight for greater access to all forms of healthcare in the north.

 

If you have questions or concerns that you would like to speak to her about, please do not hesitate to reach out by email or phone:

Local Businesses Donate To Senior Programs Through 100 Grand In Your Hand & Snacks For Students

After speaking with the workers involved in these programs, it was decided this donation would again be welcomed and needed. We also worked with Wescana Inn and were able to
provide healthy eating messages for families while collecting small donations.

 

Through sponsorships of these two initiatives, CJAR is able to deliver 2 x $500 cheques to St.
Paul’s Residence and the Rod McGillivary Care Home as well as purchasing $100 in healthy snacks.

THE ASSEMBLY OF MANITOBA CHIEFS FILES CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ON BEHALF OF FIRST NATIONS CHILDREN, FAMILIES AND NATION

Treaty One Territory, Manitoba – The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC)- First Nations Family Advocate Office
(FNFAO) on behalf of First Nations children, their families, and First Nations filed a class action lawsuit to the Court
of King’s Bench against the Government of Manitoba and the Attorney General of Canada. This legal action would
be the first species to “off-reserve” children, going back from 1992 to the present day, who were apprehended by
Child and Family Services (CFS) and placed into foster care.

 

There are approximately 11,000 children in the child welfare system in Manitoba, 80 percent of whom are First
Nations and many of those children are apprehended off-reserve (61% of the children in care in the Northern
Authority and 75% of the children in the care of the Southern Authority were apprehended off-reserve.)

 

The legal action outlines how the failure of the child welfare system in Manitoba has principally affected three
groups: the children themselves, their families, and their First Nations. All three groups must be represented in
order to advance restorative justice and ensure that the tragic errors of the past are not repeated.
The plaintiffs seek the following:

 

1) an immediate stop to the discriminatory practices that result in the apprehension of so many First Nations
children

 

2) properly funded services for First Nations children now.

 

3) $1 billion dollars in compensation to First Nations children, families, and First Nations for the damage caused
by the child welfare system since 1992.

 

4) recognition that the well-being of First Nation children must be entrenched in First Nations laws relating to the
the well-being of First Nations children and families.

 

For decades, children in the foster care system have been prevented from learning their First Nation’s distinct and sacred teachings, receiving essential spiritual guidance, and knowing and taking pride in their true identity and
culture.

 

This ongoing practice sets up First Nations children to fail as adults, where they are disproportionately
vulnerable to poverty, homelessness, mental health issues, unemployment, illness, poor educational outcomes,
human trafficking, gang recruitment, and involvement in the criminal justice system.

 

“As our class action clearly states: Manitoba and Canada’s disastrous management of child welfare in this province
perpetuates a longstanding effort to assimilate First Nations children,” stated AMC Deputy Grand Chief Cornell
McLean. “In the guise of providing care, Manitoba and Canada have employed discriminatory practices to destroy
First Nations families and Nations. This action seeks to end the harm, together with compensation to help us heal
as a Nation."
