‘It’s Not Enough to Say We’re Sorry’ for the Indigenous Child Welfare Crisis

Submitted by Tyee Staff, 20 Jun 2018

Cindy Blackstock, a respected advocate and professor, shared some solutions to Canada’s Indigenous child welfare crisis with Tyee reporter Katie Hyslop for a 13-part series.

This week, Blackstock received a Doctor of Laws, honoris causa from the University of Toronto.

“It’s not enough to say we’re sorry. We have to learn from the past,” said Blackstock in her convocation address.

You can watch her share about her journey of advocacy and Canadian heroes who have inspired her in the video above.
