K'aila's story raises serious questions about child protection and First Nations children. Was it appropriate that a non-First Nations social services agency made the initial assessment of whether K'aila was in need of protection, that a non-First Nations court had the power to decide whether K'aila was in need of protection, and that Francois and Leslie's decision was held to a non-First Nations standard of care? Was K'aila well-served by the child welfare system?
