Indigenous woman’s suicide in Manitoba highlights harms of child welfare system

Editor’s Note – A previous version of this story indicated that Southeast Child and Family Services was involved in the apprehension of the children referred to in the story. Subsequent to the publication of the story, Southeast Child and Family Services advised Global News that it did not apprehend the children and said it was another child and family services agency that removed the children from the home. Warning: This video contains disturbing content. Discretion advised. As First Nations begin making deals with Ottawa to take back control of child welfare, there is renewed attention to the harm colonial systems cause. This after an Anishinaabe woman in Manitoba posted a video about her experience moments before she took her own life. Melissa Ridgen reports.
