ALGONQUIN WOMEN GO FASTING FOR CHILDREN
QUEBEC- Earlier this week Micheline Anicinapio from Lac Simon started a fast for our children that placed in Foster care. The fast is to urge Quebec Child Services and the Complaint Board to meet with the community of Lac Simon.
Thursday evening she was joined by Carole Dumont.
This fast is taking place in their community of Lac Simon located near Val’Dor in the region of Abitibi-Temiscamgue, Quebec. Helen Papatie (pictured in the middle) sleeps with the 2 women in the evenings to offer support and Bernadette Wabanonik is the main helper to the women in fasting who prepares the broth and all that is needed for the women that are still yet in waiting to meet with the Quebec Child Services.
Their community hall has been prepared by meetings with the young parents, reviewing an agenda which are in a waiting period to discuss a new approach and workplan with the Quebec DPJ Child Services.
