Please fill the doodle below and let us know when you plan to attend the hearing. This will help us keep track of the number of supporters. There is room for only 75 observers in the Federal Court room , however, an overflow room is also planned. The goal is to fill the court-room for both the morning and afternoon sessions of all three days.

If you are signing up as individuals who have no preference for either the morning or the afternoon, please consider coming for the afternoon sessions as we would like to give preference to teachers/professors and their students for the morning.

  2. This is one good case and story, what will Canada come up with…how can they keep treating First Nations People like we are less than them. Our Child Welfare system is sure less funded than the mainstream society.
