Héma-Québec is searching for new mothers to donate to their breast milk bank.

According to CBC News, neonatal intensive care units in hospitals across the province do not have enough breast milk to feed to premature babies.

Any mother living in Montreal and Quebec City can donate their breast milk as long as they are in good health and are able to produce additional milk if their child is less than a year old.

The United Nations questioned Canada about its efforts to fight racial discrimination on Monday.

According to CBC News, the UN found that Canada had disproportionately high rates of incarceration of Indigenous people in 2012 and asked the Canadian government to eliminate violence against Aboriginal women and provide better healthcare services, education and housing to Indigenous communities.

The UN also asked the Canadian government to stop taking Indigenous children away from their families and putting them into foster care.

The UN will publish its latest recommendations by the end of this month.
