Federal government won't appeal ruling that found it discriminated against children on reserves

 


The federal government will not appeal a landmark human rights ruling that found it discriminated against children on reserves in its funding of child welfare services.

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal decision handed down last month said First Nations are hurt by the level of services provided by the government and, in some cases, denied services as a result of the government's involvement.

The government said today it would not seek judicial review of the judgment.
