Canada: ‘More than a tragedy’ Ontario child advocate says of youth who die when taken into care
CBC News – November 28, 2017
The review to explore the deaths of 11 young people in Ontario who died while in the care of child welfare agencies must, at its core, focus on the children’s stories, according to the province’s advocate for children and youth. Ontario’s chief coroner, Dirk Huyer, confirmed that the months-long “expert review” will probe how the youth were cared for when they were placed in homes or facilities away from their communities, and issues that may have arisen.
