A human rights tribunal hearing a case of alleged discrimination on

First Nations children by the federal government heard Thursday

from the person who filed the complaint and how the feds retaliated

against her. As first reported by APTN National News in 2011,

Cindy Blackstock alleged Aboriginal Affairs had been

keeping a close eye on her, including posing as “friends”

and having her accept them on

her Facebook.

They also followed her to conferences and looked into

her Indian status records.

Blackstock said she was also banned from a meeting with

department officials.

APTN National News reporter Annette Francis has more

on Blackstock’s testimony.
