This is a very informative article that outlines some of the major issues that the native population must face in today’s Canada.  The first issue brought up is the fact that the slashing of Canada’s child welfare program will have serious impacts of the lives of already at risk children.  The cutting of these programs without thought has lead to a huge problems in the lives of families who depend on these resources to get by.  Another issue is the seemed indifference that Canadian law enforcement seems to have for missing native women.  The final most pressing issue is the fact that native people in Canada are much more at risk for health related issues but are not allowed the same access to care as other Canadians.  Native people are also at a greater risk from preventative diseases, mental illness and HIV.
