Can someone please contact me, as we are organizing a national class action related to the conduct of agencies and workers who work for CFS. We need representatives in every Province, as this will cover all children and families ever involved with CFS many of whom who are still alive, despite the ongoing systemic abuse which is widespread across the country. Meegwetch! Authorities Act and CFS Act of Manitoba, Unconstitutional to Status Indians Thursday, October 1, 2009 12:59 PM In the latest style of service by CFS (Devolution), mandates are rarely adhered to! I pointed out to one supervisor in a meeting with CFS that 10 of the 11 principles have "family" (he said to me quote "That doesn't mean anything!", but the important one which is determined solely by CFS "Best Interests of the Child" is exploited! Who are they to determine what's best for our children without parents having any input? Some CFS workers like rabid dogs are tearing families apart in record numbers explaining the sharp increase in child apprehensions! This in turn is the cry related to the "I Am a Witness Tribunal", put together by yours truly Elsie Flette (the Brainchild of Devolution), and her FNFCS where she sits atop as Chair of the Board. As I looked down the list as a proud supporter and seen my name, I figured well lets look at the rest of the site. I was shocked to see Elsie Flette Chairing this organization. I sent an email asking them immediately remove me! I said in the email quote "If you want more money do a better job!" ( I may have used an expletive). In any sector of society, job performance qualifies you for more money! In my many complaints by families about Agencies that are under the control of the Southern Authority, very few have been addressed. Not just the Southern Authority, but all the Authorities have their proportionate amount of horror stories! The biggest concern right now is the passing of responsibility and power around by the province washing their hands of any accountability! The Minister "fails to act" allowing the victimizing and mental/emotional torture of children and families to continue by CFS workers! The Province has enacted legislation, which is unconstitutional to "Status Indians"! Us "Status Indians" are a Federal responsibility not Provincial, and to fix the funding issue there needs to be National Child Welfare Legislation where the Feds assume control of child welfare, and directly negotiate with the AFN for money! Which in turn is dispersed to the communities. If the majority of children in care are Status Indians isn't it only logical to have Federal Standards, Legislation and funding? The Province is failing to act on many complaints that are flooding into me since the story on September 5 in the Winnipeg Free Press, the local CKY news, CTV National, and of course the Thunder Voice News August Issue. This is not a provincial problem, as the systemic abuse is widespread across the country! Look at the horrid statistics and actions of CFS in Ontario! 90 child deaths alone in 2007! The apprehension of special needs children affecting thousands earlier this decade and the subsequent class action by families as a result! I invite those families to join our National Class Action as the Federal Government needs to step in and take the bull by the horns. I also invite the Chiefs of our First Nations Community to stand up for our people together! Bottom line there needs to be accountability and transparency! Is confidentiality really protecting or helping CFS exploit, our children and families? I applaud the handing over of Child Welfare by the AMC to the SCO. Maybe the changes that need to be made will happen a lot sooner before more families are torn apart! Let's see the SCO push for Federal policy and funding related to child welfare! This would dissolve the Authorities and the lessen the burden of financial commitments of the Province, seeing only a small number less than 25% of children in care are of other descent (non Status). There's your funding formula. Let not our children be statistics to support the Manitoba's push for more money through Elsie Flette!
