Philpott says families should not be torn apart because they are poor or because parents have health problems. A bill won't change the way Indigenous parents are treated by itself but Philpott says it can be a turning point, a call that says "No more." Philpott was speaking to First Nations chiefs at a major Assembly of First Nations gathering in Ottawa today.

Suing under pseudonyms

Earlier this year, a Supreme Court judge agreed to withhold the identities of the two men from public record. The court is allowing them to sue the government under pseudonyms. Only their lawyers, the judge and the territorial government will ever know their identities.

In court documents, the men claim the territorial government failed to protect them from harm while they were at the child welfare facility. They say the government failed to properly screen the operator and staff at the facility "whose lack of qualifications was overlooked or ignored."
