----2013 Alberta Hansard Deaths of Children in Care 🌹 Dr. Raj Sherman to Dave Hancock: "Mister Speaker, I'll tell you what cheeses me off more than anything: when children are getting hurt. This government knows they're getting hurt. Minister, you've been a minister for many years in this government, and now you're the minister who loves round-tables. Well, your round-table is a PR exercise to make the problem go away. The problem ain't going away, Minister. Time to decide, is your Premier, is your government more interested in making bad headlines go away or bad problems go away? Minister, stand up and do the right thing. Call an inquiry." http://www.assembly.ab.ca/…/sessio…/20131127_1330_01_han.pdf------------ Julie Ali The child welfare system problems are not difficult to fix. There is no political will to fix the problems in this area by the GOA. Fixing problems would require that the GOA actually work rather than do the usual business of delay, deny and defuse problems. What is required is the political balls to simply go through the data we already have and discover solutions. The GOA is fully capable of this but has never bothered to do this. Why? I am suspecting that going through data including the fatality reports would raise the issue of liability and non-compliances. For this reason the GOA always focusing on moving families and the public forwards which is fine but what are we doing about problems that resulted in harm, repeated adverse events and fatality? Nothing. I have yet to find any of the recommendations tracked and implemented anywhere. Who in each department is responsible for implementation of even fatality reports? Just telling us that the departments are responsible means nothing. There needs to be a paper trail and reporting to the public. Like · Reply · Just now · Edited
