Getting It Right on National Child Day’ – an Op Ed piece by Dr. Jeff Bisanz and Dr. Christopher Smith

An Op Ed piece written by a Director and the Assistant Executive Director of The Muttart Foundation to support National Child Day on November 20th.

November 20th marks National Child Day in Canada, the day when we wear royal blue ribbons to show our support for the children in our lives and communities.

And yet for many who participate in the celebrations, the purpose behind day is often lost – a rather profound oversight given that the intent of National Child Day is to focus on the rights of children and our collective obligations to see that these rights are met.
