Did you know First Nations children on reserve receive lower levels of service for health, welfare, and education? This is because federal funding falls below provincial levels of funding offered to other Canadians. On average, schools receive $2000-3000 less funding per student than provincially run schools.
Walks are being held across Canada to focus attention on this ineqity. The Barrie Friendship Centre is holding a walk on Wednesday, June 12 at the Centre. To join in solidarity with them, be at the Centre at 3 p.m. for singing and drumming before the walk begins at 4 p.m.
