(521) First Nations life expectancy in Toronto [Report]

Anishnabe EagleWords falter, if not fail, at the reading of a report into life expectancy for First Nations people in Toronto.  A little over forty years for women and little under forty years for men.  That’s an average of thirty-seven years based on a study of about one hundred premature deaths in a two-year period.  Typical life expectancy for a non-native Torontonian?  Seventy-five years.
