Separating sick Inuit kids and parents is medical colonialism all over again

In Quebec, air ambulances continue the incomprehensible practice of separating children and parents – despite no written policy demanding it
The result of all this? Intergenerational traumas and deep-rooted mistrust among indigenous communities when seeking healthcare. We need a definitive end to separating Inuit kids from their families when requiring emergency medical care. The status quo perpetuates the colonial paradigm.
