Alberta Foster Care

October 15, 2010 permalink

CBC News broadcast a report today on the failings of Alberta foster care (wmv). Twelve foster deaths have been reported in two years. The unnamed mother and her late daughter featured at the start are Velvet Martin and Samantha Martin.

The report Closing the Gap Between Vision and Reality (pdf) mentioned in the broadcast is the usual bureaucratic banter about childcare — it has no occurrences of the words mother or father but over a hundred of minister, services, system and process.
