We’re getting ready to cover the Robert Riley Saunders’ trial and we want to do it in a way that serves our community. 

The former social worker has been arrested and is due to appear in a Kelowna courtroom this week. He’s been accused of stealing from dozens of — mostly Indigenous — youth in the child welfare system. 

As we prepare to cover Robert Saunders’ trial, we want to hear from you: 

  1. As this trial unfolds, what kind of information would be useful to you? 

  2. Whose voices do you hope to see amplified and how can we do this in a good way?

  3. How can we honour the Indigenous youth who Saunders is accused of exploiting?
