    My grandson is in temporary Mcfd care he is Metis . we have been working on his return to my care .I got him in 2010 ,he has been in care just over 8 months . we were having regular weekend unsupervised visits including wed. dinner visits. When Covid 19 happened Mcfd cancelled all visits .this is contrary to U.N.D.R.I.P Metis people . I wrote letters to Mcfd Deputy Binister bc representative of children and youth, My grandson only received an Advocate ,my grandson is in a group home licenced under Island Health. The group home is running ” business as usual ” yet my grandson and I have not seen each other in a month today only calls and face time. In the category is this situation with the majority of children in Mcfd care of Aboriginal ancestry , this is wrong !! so no Metis people Children do not have equal access to services Family is not “essential”.
