The Saskatoon Tribal Council says the children in its care are safe and to suggest that it's lax in its responsibilities is offensive. The comments come after Social Services Minister Donna Harpauer (HAR'-power) said yesterday that the council has refused the ministry access to files, so the government has no idea how many children are being cared for or what kind of care they're receiving. Tribal chief Felix Thomas says there's no reason for the province to take back responsibility for the care of children from the council. (Thomas says the Ministry of Social Services went to the tribal council's office today and the council refused to provide the files on the children. Harpauer says the next step is to go to court.)
