N.W.T. government opposes custom adoption granted to Métis couple from B.C.

The Northwest Territories government says an Indigenous custom adoption approved for a B.C. couple who moved to the N.W.T. should never have been granted.

But the parents who applied for and received the custom adoption maintain that territorial or provincial governments can't overturn it, because custom adoption is a constitutionally protected Indigenous right.
