Today’s letters: Canada’s broken child-welfare system

The National Post should be congratulated for adding to the national conversation on the direction of child welfare in this country. In a research project I have been leading, which looks into child protection failures, there are two uncomfortable themes that keep arising: That the system is largely racist and focused on the economically disadvantaged. Aboriginal people make up the largest percentage of children in care across the country. Other minority populations follow. The vast majority of families involved in the child protection systems are also poor.
