A summit in Winnipeg got together all indigenous residents who want to change the situation on inequalities.
Indigenous residents believe that they have the full right to receive the same medical services as other residents of Canada. Families with indigenous children want to get beds, wheelchairs and other necessary things for their children.
People shared their sad stories at a summit on Jordan’s Principle in Winnipeg. The summit is named after the boy who died because the issue of paying for his medical services was not resolved.
A woman told that she had been trying to receive a wheelchair for her sick son to enable him to eat and to move for more than 10 years. The woman is very upset by the fact that if her son were not an indigenous resident, he would have received everything necessary a long time ago.
