“There are so many questions that I need answered,” the mother said.
“My daughter isn’t the only one who died in CFS … and she’s not going to be the last unless someone does something about this. How many more kids are going to die in the care of CFS?”
The parents are from Bloodvein First Nation, on the east side of Lake Winnipeg south of Berens River. They said they were notified of the baby’s death Monday.
The mother said Child Family Services told her the baby chocked on her bottle or vomit.
“Look what happened when our baby ended up in CFS and now she’s taking her home in the casket,” the baby’s grandmother said.
The family was also upset at not being able to see the baby since they learned of her death in Winnipeg.
