Since about 1993, the Alberta government has been taking federal child allowance benefits away from the children in the care of the provincial welfare system.
Now Treaty 8 chiefs are supporting three representative plaintiffs in a legal action to get those dollars returned to individuals.
And the federal government is being sued too for not doing anything to stop Alberta’s actions.

Lawsuits in Colorado and Minnesota are seeking to prevent former U.S. President Trump from appearing on the voting ballot next year, citing a section of the constitution barring anyone from holding office if they “engaged in insurrection” against the document despite swearing an oath to it. But the law is mostly untested, and the decision may come down to what the amendment means by “insurrection.” Read more about the case from the Associated Press.

"Donald #Trump "repeatedly" misrepresented his wealth - by up to $3.6bn (£3bn) - to banks and insurers, a New York judge has ruled.
The decision resolves a key claim made by New York's attorney general in her civil #lawsuit against the former president.
"The documents here clearly contain fraudulent valuations that defendants used in business," the judge wrote.
The most high-profile effort, a #lawsuit known as #MissouriVBiden, is now before #SCOTUS, where the #Biden admin seeks to have the high court block a ruling from the US Court of Appeals for the #5thCircuit that found the #WhiteHouse, #FBI & top federal #health officials likely violated the #FirstAmendment by improperly influencing #tech companies’ decisions to remove or suppress posts on the #coronavirus & #elections.

But it connects his fate to a pattern of behavior that includes the kingdom’s installation of #operatives into #Twitter’s ranks to funnel to authorities private info on #dissidents.
In an #unusual 4p stmnt attached to an otherwise routine list of orders concerning pending cases, Justice Alito dismissed calls for him to step aside as “unsound.”
They aim to ensure “that votes cast will be for those constitutionally qualified to hold office, that a #disqualified candidate does not siphon off support from…candidates of choice, & that voters are not deprived of the chance to vote for a qualified candidate in the general election,” the #lawsuit says.
Similar efforts are unfolding in other states. Last month, …#FreeSpeechForPeople wrote to… #Florida, #NewHampshire, #NewMexico, #Ohio & #Wisconsin, urging them not to include #Trump on ballots.
Six #Colorado voters filed a #lawsuit on Wednesday seeking to keep #Trump off the state’s #ballots under the #14thAmendment, which says anyone who “engaged in #insurrection or rebellion” against the #Constitution after taking an #oath to defend it is #ineligible to hold office.
