Recently the Harper government™ plant at the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, Shirish Chotalia, ruled, after eighteen months of shilly-shallying, that Aboriginal kids had no legal right to the same level of social services as non-Aboriginal children.

Today we learn of rampant tooth decay among those very children:

Dr. Robert Schroth, a specialist in pediatric dentistry at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, says he has seen aboriginal children from remote communities with 18 out of 20 of their baby teeth rotting away.

“The crowns have broken away and it’s only the little root stubs left and sometimes little draining abscesses,” said Schroth.

Expect the usual snoring from the Cons, while energetic lawyers from the Department of Justice argue in the federal court why Aboriginal children—and their teeth—should be left to rot.
