About the Author

Dr. Charles Ferguson (1932 - 2014) passed away in August of 2014 at the age of 82. Born in Cape Breton and educated in Montreal, Dr. Ferguson was a Winnipeg pediatrician who founded Manitoba's Child Protection Centre, served as its longtime Director, and became one of Canada's leading child abuse experts. Ferguson worked full time at the Child Protection Centre until he was about 80. His expertise as a child-abuse investigator placed him in great demand as an expert witness in court cases across Canada. In a 15-year period, Ferguson testified in 50 child-abuse cases across the country and was working on a book with University of Manitoba law Prof. David Milward about his experiences as an expert witness at the time of his death. Ferguson also worked with aboriginal communities. He supported the devolution that gave aboriginal people control over Child and Family Services. As a pediatrician at Health Sciences Centre, he worked to improve communication with remote, northern families of hospitalized children, including arranging for interpreters.Dr. David Milward is a Professor of Law at the University of Manitoba and is a member of the Beardy's & Okemasis Nation in Saskatchewan. He holds Bachelors of Arts in History from the University of Calgary, a Bachelors and Masters in Law from the University of Albert, and a Doctorate in Philosophy in Law from the University of British Columbia. Dr. Milward has worked as a research consultant for Calgary Legal Guidance, a legal clinic that provides legal services for indigent people in Calgary. His areas of specialization are criminal law and Aboriginal law, with a particular focus on Aboriginal justice issues. Prof. Milward has several publications in international refereed journals that cover a range of human rights topics, including: due process rights in the criminal justice system, victim rights and safety during the criminal process, the rights of Aboriginal Peoples under Canadian law, and civil disobedience. His work has been included in the databases and collections of a number of prestigious institutions, including the Correctional Service of Canada, the J.V. Library of the Australian Institute of Criminology, and the Library of the Norwegian Nobel Institute.
