A Woman in the News article on Wednesday about Judge Sonia Sotomayor, President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court, misstated, in some editions, the year in which she was confirmed as the first Hispanic judge on the federal bench in New York State. It was 1992, not 2002. The article also misspelled, in some editions, the given name of the former Republican senator from New York State who helped push through the October 1998 vote in which Judge Sotomayor was confirmed as a member of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, in New York. He is Alfonse M. D’Amato, not Alphonse.
According to a left-wing think tank, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, "Based on data from the 2006 census, this study found that the average child poverty rate for all children in Canada is 17%, while the average child poverty rate for all Indigenous children is more than twice that figure, at 40%." "50% — of status First Nations children live below the poverty line. This number grows to 62% in Manitoba and 64% in Saskatchewan."  The study referred to used the Low Income Measure as their definition for poverty, which always shows a high rate. Nonetheless, the much higher LIM statistics for indigenous families indicates a much higher level of poverty among that demographic.
