Change the program: Prison programs promise change for the better (The Telegram)

Change the program
Prison programs promise change for the better

ALISHA MORRISSEY AND JAMES MCLEOD
The Telegram

Part 3 in a four-part series

Problem’s cause is no solution

Last updated on Tuesday, Dec. 08, 2009 2:23AM EST

Your editorial State Care Is No Home (Dec. 4) suggests a solution to aboriginal overrepresentation in the child-welfare system is to return to a system of non-aboriginal adoption of aboriginal children, based on the unsupported assertion that “adoption is different in many respects today” and non-aboriginal Canadians are better equipped to maintain dual cultural identities than during the disastrous sixties scoop.

Ottawa, ON (November 25, 2009) – Yesterday marked the twentieth anniversary of Parliament unanimously passing a resolution to end child poverty in Canada by the year 2000. Once again a renewed call is being voiced to eliminate poverty. While the child poverty rate of Aboriginal children has gone down since 1995, Aboriginal Peoples are at a higher risk of poverty; in fact more than one in three Aboriginal children live in low-income families. The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) strongly feels that the elimination of poverty in Canada must be made a national priority.
