Brittany HobsonAPTN NewsCindy Blackstock, the executive director of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society spoke out about how Canada and the provinces deal with children who need medical help on reserve.“If you don’t have water or a house parenting programs aren’t going to do you a lot of good,” she said. “Unless we create equity across all those dimensions the over-representation is going to continue.”Blackstock won a discrimination case in the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) against Canada where she proved the federal government spent less on First Nations child welfare when compared to what the provinces spend off reserve.Earlier this year the CHRT issued its fifth non-compliance order against Canada.But she says the provinces have a role to play as well.“If that solution the government agrees that’s a good solution and they still don’t implement it and you’ve tried everything I think that yeah you should go to litigation because the bottom line is that kids should come first,” she told the [email protected]@bhobs22

Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini is in massive support of installing cells at Serie A stadia for misbehaving fans.Salvini played a part in resolving the crisis in wake of the Inter-Napoli controversy at San Siro, which saw one supporter killed, several stabbed and Kalidou Koulibaly subjected to racist abuse.“I’m satisfied with how this meeting went,” Salvini told reporters via Football Italia.“I want to start with numbers. You can’t die from football in 2018, even if the use of knives has little to do with football.“Fortunately, the numbers of the dead, wounded and those arrested are falling and it’s said that football is an increasingly healthy sport.Maurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.“Even the numbers of banned fans are falling. Now it’s 6,500, while every week 12m people travel to games and 6,000 of them are thugs.“Therefore, we mustn’t confuse fans with these criminals. Football is about emotion, joy, passion and education. It’s an opportunity for thousands of suburban kids.“As for the cost of law enforcement, we’d like clubs to pay for it too.

They’re more easily controllable that way.“We must make fans responsible and make them understand that those who do wrong will pay for it.“We want to facilitate the construction of more modern and safer stadia. We’re working to have cells installed at stadia, while stewards must have more power.
