Cora Morgan, Manitoba’s First Nations advocate for children


Compiled by Debora Steel







Cora Morgan, Manitoba’s First Nations advocate for children in care, has accused the provincial government and child-welfare officials of trying to muzzle her. She held a press conference to discuss how Child and Family Services officials have responded to her criticisms of the system. She said the information she presents is “always” discounted. “They discount the severity of these issues,” she told reporters. By her side was Tory family services critic Ian Wishart who said the NDP government has not been listening to Morgan. She was appointed by the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs to respond to concerns about the numbers of aboriginal children in CFS care. “They seem to be going out of their way to cast aspersions on what she’s had to say,” Wishart said.
