#PanelPolitics like the PC roundtable of spin before it was designed by the spin masters at the GOA to cover the exposed behinds of the GOA folks but it has failed with the revelation of the facts that the GOA has allowed other children to remain in an unsafe placement where Serenity died. What the heck is going on at the GOA? Its mind boggling.

Today - perhaps above all others - the realization another Panel/Roundtable/Discussion/Research Group is pointless is cemented in events unfolding:
An article by Stuart Thomson with the Journal was issued yesterday that apparently reveals other children who survive Serenity remain in the home.
'You can't paint this pretty': Alberta government confirms children still living in home where Serenity was assaulted
First of all, Serenity's kohkom was not made aware of this fact until viewing the article online this morning and is rightfully shaken and devastated.
Like my own daughter, Samantha's case preceding Serenity's nearly a decade before, themes of failure keep over-lapping and repeating:
Samantha had not been viewed by her caseworker for 14 months. Serenity had not been viewed by her caseworker for 11 months.
The Ministry knew - their own notes indicate - belief that Samantha was in danger of sexual, emotional and physical trauma; that her needs were not being met. The Report is dated January 2006 and yet, Samantha remained in the placement for 5 more months, until June.
The home where Samantha resided continues to be open to vulnerable children. The home where Serenity resided - in which similar grave allegations are made - also has children continuing to live there.
Kudos for the reporter's pointed question to the Minister:
Would you feel safe were it YOUR own children in the home?
Evasion of answer highlights continued scripted responses towards injuries and deaths of children in care.
Although Government has changed Leadership, obviously children remain prey.
Avoidance of key stakeholders - families of deceased children and survivors of the Child Welfare System - continue to be evaded in favour of scholars lacking lived experience.
Stop killing our children!

Julie Ali The hypocrisy of the NDP government is fully exposed in the revelations that other children reside in the home where Serenity died. We would not have known of this situation without the facts being told to us by Serenity's family who ask good questions about the reasons why the GOA has permitted these children to stay with this family. Why has the GOA done this? Who is in charge of oversight? Why the failures to communicate with the public? And most importantly--when will the children in this house be removed to a safe placement?
