B.C.'s child representative 'appalled' after ministry's apprehension of Indigenous baby

The chief councillor of the Huu-ay-aht Nation on Vancouver Island says the number of children in his nation being taken into provincial care has reached a crisis level. Last week, the Huu-ay-aht leadership declared a public health emergency over the issue. The declaration comes after B.C.'s Ministry of Children and Family Development took a three-day-old baby into care in January.
