Key First Nation 'cautious' after talks with B.C.1 minute read Preview Yesterday at 1:40 PM CDT
VANCOUVER - Leaders of Saskatchewan's Key First Nation say they held a "productive discussion" with senior officials from British Columbia and have agreed to keep talking about critical outstanding issues.
The First Nation released a statement one day after a news conference in Vancouver that outlined its first steps to control its own child welfare services.
Vancouver was selected because the First Nation is still waiting for answers from B.C. about 13-year-old Noelle O'Soup, a Key First Nation member who disappeared from a B.C. group home and was found dead a year later.
The statement says the Key First Nation chief and council met with Attorney General Niki Sharma and Children and Family Development Minister Mitzi Dean and all sides agreed to continue work toward a joint strategy to address important issues.

Oklahoma court OK’s abortion to preserve mother’s life3 minute read Preview Tuesday, Mar. 21, 2023
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A divided Oklahoma Supreme Court on Tuesday overturned a portion of the state’s near total ban on abortion, ruling women have a right to abortion when pregnancy risks their health, not just in a medical emergency.
It was a narrow win for abortion rights advocates since the U.S. Supreme Court s truck down Roe v. Wade.
The court ruled that a woman has the right under the state Constitution to receive an abortion to preserve her life if her doctor determines that continuing the pregnancy would endanger it due to a condition she has or is likely to develop during the pregnancy. Previously, the right to an abortion could only take place in the case of medical emergency.
“Requiring one to wait until there is a medical emergency would further endanger the life of the pregnant woman and does not serve a compelling state interest,” the ruling states.
