When did we decide that children were a disposable commodity...
A July 2008 letter from Ms. Turpel-Lafond to the ministry, obtained by Vancouver newspaper 24 Hours through a freedom of information request, cited four cases involving children left in homes that had been judged unsafe.Wanna know how government actually works?
After the letter became public in September, B.C. Child and Family minister Tom Christensen said those cases had been investigated and that the children in question were safe.
Aboriginal children account for fewer than one in 10 people in the province, but represent more than half the children in care.
Bureaucrat 1: "Hey, the newspapers are sniffin' around all those battered children we shifted around to foster homes."Unbelievable.
Bureaucrat 2: "Damn... I guess we're gonna have to start vetting these people... BEFORE we place the kids. What a pain."
