First Nation drops out of girls' adoption case

The Squamish Nation of British Columbia has dropped out of an adoption case involving two young girls.

The girls have been in foster care in Ontario since 2000. When the foster parents asked to adopt them, the band objected and asked for them to be placed in a home near the Squamish Reserve in British Columbia.

A judge is set to decide custody of the girls.
