Dr. Cindy Blackstock, one of Canada's staunchest advocates for indigenous children, being toppled. In her 30 years as a social worker and activist, she's been spied on by the federal government, even as it spent millions fighting her in front of the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

Touchstones of Hope::

In October, 2005, Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders in child welfare gathered in Niagara Falls at an historic event called Reconciliation: Looking Back, Reaching Forward – Indigenous Peoples and Child Welfare. The result of this gathering was the creation of the Touchstones of Hope, which was presented for the first time in a document entitled Reconciliation in Child Welfare: Touchstones of Hope for Indigenous Children, Youth and Families.
