Dismantle the Authorities of Manitoba


NAG Petition Drive 2009 (Door to Door November 29-December 11)               2009-01

I 100% Support the dismantling of the Authorities and repealing the Act. due to discrimination and the complete failure of "Devolution" through the Act. This Act has done more harm than good. I support National Aboriginal Child Welfare Legislation to replace the current child welfare system. This will set standards and fix funding. I do not support the "I am a witness tribunal." More money will not fix the current issues!
-as the Province of Manitoba has enacted legislation to a group (Status Indians) it has no jurisdiction over, and Canada has abandoned it's fiduciary obligation to aboriginal peoples rights
-there is an approximately ratio of 80% to 20% Status to non-status in the child welfare system.-as the Province had invested approximately, $268 million in expenditures for child welfare in 2007, and the only Federal money are transfer payments through CTB and UCB (roughly $30 million) snatched from families already being exploited. (This money should have been spent on reinvesting in families through the Differential Response model. Not operations eg; more social workers!)             
To all media, WE HAVE WHISTLE-BLOWERS IN CFS WILLING TO COME FORWARD, and a call to all who've been forced to sign non disclosure agreements with CFS upon accepting employment. I know there is more than the 4 who have come forward! We did contact the Minister's office this morning and spoke to Lynn who affirmed someone will contact me ASAP. I did tell them I am giving them the opportunity to work with us, or do we proceed by going to the media? They chose the latter! We are also working on an Ombudsman report, as both the Metis and the Southern Authority and their people have failed to Act, expecting the people themselves to come forward! Some of our families aren't articulate enough to be able to navigate through without getting annoyed, which the agency in turn exploits!NAG Inc will also be going door to door this Christmas season with the following petition which will be turned in to the Federal MP's and the AFN during the 2nd week of January.  We will be going around Winnipeg starting in the North End of Winnipeg on November 30, 2009. This petition will be distributed on Facebook as well as to a select few aboriginal communities. If you would like to circulate and gather signatures, please contact the Chair of NAG Jules Greyeyes at 229-0002. You can mail back completed petitions to: NAG Inc, 689 Magnus Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R2W 2E1. PLEASE HAVE COMPLETTED PETITIONS MAILED BACK 1ST WEEK OF JANUARY. Meegwetch!
Truly,
