The judicial review (appeal) of the human rights complaint filed by the Caring Society and the Assembly of First Nations was heard February 13-15th in Federal Court in Ottawa. The complaint, filed in 2007, argues that the Federal Government is discriminating against First Nations children by failing to provide equitable and culturally based services on-reserve. The complaint was dismissed by the Human Rights Tribunal in March 2011 on a legal technicality. The Caring Society, Assembly of First Nations, and Canadian Human Rights Commission are fighting that decision.The case was heard by Justice Mactavish, a former President of the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, who promised to render a decision as soon as possible. The Caring Society anticipates a decision to be released this early spring.
