The parents of a 10 year Native girl are willing to let their daughter die of leukemia and the New Credit First Nation are saying they will use violence in order to keep child services from apprehending her:
“They basically said she would have 100 per cent relapse and she would die if we discontinued chemotherapy. And that going the route of traditional medicine has zero per cent success rate,” said Sonya Sault.
“We’re not going to allow any other agency to come in and apprehend our children. We went through that in the ’40s and ’50s and we’re not going to allow that again,” said Chief Bryan Laforme.
The Saults said their community has also created a group called the “Makayla defence force,” a group of hundreds of community members ready to act if Children’s Aid attempts to apprehend her. (see here)
And the CBC journo Connie Walker apparently believes since it’s “traditional FN medicine” that this child has the right to choose:
Makayla Sault is only 10 years old, but has already had to make life and death decisions.
I’ve asked Walker flat-out if she supports this decision to allow Makayla to die and will update if she responds.
Tell me if this was a white Christian family, the CBC and the rest of the Media Party wouldn’t be screaming how insane these people were and equating them to Branch Davidians.
Update: Walker refuses to directly answer my question and repeatedly hides pretending to be non-biased:
