Velvet Martin With the Child Welfare panel going on today, I would hope the media would pick up on the Appeal.

Bev Lassesen the social service system needs a good shaking up....there are too many things that have happened and are still happening that are being covered up....and the govt has blame in this as well
Julie Ali There is no transparency or accountability in the child welfare or the continuing care system because the GOA doesn't want their failures broadcast to the citizens; doesn't look good in terms of performance. It's a shame but there you go. Until there is sustained public demand for change this situation of panel politics will continue without any discernible changes. We thought changing political parties would result in alteration in the situation but unfortunately the situation remains stubbornly concrete.

Press Gallery #168: The Secrets and Lies edition




SHAREADJUSTCOMMENTPRINT
A panel tasked with reforming the child intervention system began in Edmonton this week, but the fact it’s not being recorded in Hansard or anywhere else has some folks worried about the veil of secrecy that continues to surround the system.
Join Press Gallery podcast host Emma Graney along with guests Sarah O’Donnell, Paula Simons and Stuart Thomson as they talk about all things Alberta politics, including the panel, an inquiry into the tragic death of a care worker, and how political leaders reacted to the U.S. travel ban and the Quebec mosque killings. 

Good stuff from the gallery

Sarah’s pick: Lessons from Propublica about what U.S. journalists can learn from covering Putin.
Paula’s pick: If you’re feeling bad about the state of the world, at least it’s not the worst year ever, according to these history professors
Emma’s pick: This Maclean’s magazine piece from Jason Markusoff about the new underground railroad bringing refugees north to Canada. 
Stuart’s pick: This piece from Politico about how distrust in Trump’s White House has sparked leaks and confusion.
