‘I am troubled by the Ford government’s utter lack of compassion and understanding’

Lance Copegog, Deputy Youth Chief of the Beausoleil First Nation Youth Council is “shocked and appalled” about the repeal of the Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth Act.

“The Ontario Child Advocate plays an important role in amplifying the voices of Indigenous youth, educating children on their rights, and ensuring that children in care have a champion. Through the good work of Irwin Elman and his team, the Office of the Ontario Child Advocate has ensured that First Nations youth have equitable access to services and resources in Ontario.

“By eliminating the Child Advocate position, Ontario becomes the largest province in Canada not to have one.

The Ontario government is putting the lives of Indigenous children on the line.”
