The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs has sent an open letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau requesting him to direct the ministers of Indigenous Services Canada and Justice Canada to work with First Nations leadership in Manitoba to jointly draft a federal bill that will fund and give effect to Manitoba First Nations through the “Bringing Our Children Home Act.” that is Manitoba-specific, informed and drafted by Manitoba First Nations so that it specifically addresses the regional-specific child welfare issues for Manitoba First Nations.
