Foster Care System under Court Scruteny and Media Attention

The Edmonton Journal newspaper has reported on a couple of stories focusing on the child welfare system. You can read a quote from one article below and visit the link to it. In the right column of the Edmonton Journal story once you get there, you will see links to similar stories.

"I think that the judge has really seen how the government operates," said Robert P. Lee, who represents more than 400 former foster children in two class-action lawsuits against the province. "It's a bunker mentality (in Children's Services). It's, 'Do whatever you can to defend yourself and deny accountability.'"

It appears the courts are starting to pay attention to the CAS's and the Ministries of Children and Youth Services and doing something about it.
