First Nations Family and Children Caring Community’s “Have a Heart” campaign

The federal NDP is supporting the First Nations Family and Children Caring Community’s “Have a Heart” campaign as one of their Days of Action. The purpose is to create awareness of the unequal treatment of Indigenous children by the federal government.

On February 11, a petition will be circulated that calls upon the Government of Canada to comply with a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruling regarding the systemic shortfalls in First Nations child welfare. The petition signing will take place outside the Wolfville Farmer's Market (24 Elm Drive) between 10 am and noon. The petition will be presented in the House of Commons by Tom Mulcair.

On February 12, there will be screening the documentary film Hi Ho Mistahey. Produced by National Film Board and directed by Alanis Obomsawin, the film is about a national campaign to provide equitable access to education in safe and suitable schools for First Nations children. The film will be shown at 1 pm in Room 241 at the Beveridge Arts Centre at Acadia University (located at the corner of Highland Ave and Main Street, across from the Baptist Church). Darlene Copeland Peters, the Prevention Coordinator for Mi'kmaq Family and Children Services, will be speaking following the film.
