Saskatoon daycare has license cancelled after cutting child’s hair without consent

A daycare in Saskatoon has had its license cancelled after a child’s hair was cut without parental consent. National Post reports that Jana Nyland’s son had been enrolled at Bajwa’s Childcare for a year. Nyland is Métis, and her son’s hair was cut short in mid-September. When Nyland asked why her son’s hair had been cut, the daycare operator reportedly replied that she did not like boys to have long hair and that Indigenous children should not have long hair. The police’s hate crime unit investigated and the Ministry of Education cancelled the daycare’s license citing non-compliance with child-care regulations. No criminal charges were laid.
