Play • 21 min

In this episode of APTN Face To Face: Natasha (Reimer) Okemow was first placed into the child welfare system in Manitoba when she was one-year-old.

During her time in the system, Okemow had 12 different homes, went to four different schools and lived in five different towns.

Even though she aged out of care at the age of 21, Okemow knows she can never escape the system because of a controversial practice in Manitoba known as birth alerts.
