A year-long review led by the Ontario’s chief coroner Dirk Huyerwas has released an 86-page report that concludes the deaths of 12 children in Ontario were the result of systems failing repeatedly to meet the fundamental needs of young people. Eight of those children were Indigenous. The report includes the finding of the panel such as the way the young people were silenced after expressing thoughts of self-harm or suicide. The report includes a number of recommendations.
