Alex Gervais HAD to die because he, and others, didn't fit within Premier Christy Clark's 'Families First' or 'Family Day' election agendas

BC Liberal Cabinet response to Alex Gervais plea for help


Norman Farrell:

Rule by expediency, not by principle


Laila Yuile:

Not Forgotten. How many children must die before someone takes responsibility?

 It Didn’t Have to Happen This Way: Government Still Failing Vulnerable Youth

It’s time to make the treatment of kids in care a key election issue.


Alex Gervais caregiver received $8,000 per month .... $96,000 per year and didn't visit him for ten days before the BC Liberals threw him out the window.

Ted Hughes damming report on Premier Gordon Campbell and Deputy Premier / Education Minister Christy Clark  -  Took the (budget) knife too far

"I cannot agree with the premier's earlier assessment that budget cuts did not contribute to the failure of the transition process ...," wrote Hughes. "As I have commented throughout this report, the impact of budget constraints reverberated throughout the child welfare system from 2002 until recently.

Those responsible for the transition were under pressure to meet deep spending cuts across the board and as a result, this small program [to review the children's deaths] got lost in the shuffle."

this plan of Christy and Cadieux which causes children to die, makes a lot of money for those who are paid to look after these children. Wonder how much they donate to the B.C. Lieberals?

Christy was too busy fund raising and skimming to do her job. She doesn't care about these kids, they don't donate to the party and neither do their parents. Children in this province will continue to die as long as the b.c. lieberals are in office. The really sick part of this all is, people have continued to vote for the b.c. lieberals even though all these children have died.

Its cheaper to pay these contractors because they don't have to pay for pensions, and all the other deductions which they have to make for employees. They can keeping telling their base they have kept the number of government workers to a min. their contributors don't seem to care either about the number of children who are dying in this province. of course the main stream media don't want to publicise this. they're making to much money off of the b.c. lieberal ads, o,k. b.c. government ads. Any reference to the young many dying wasn't on CTV until after the 6:13 p.m. on the news. It simply demonstrates how much corporate B.C. cares about these children.

In my opinion three times as many children could die each year in care and nothing would change in the Ministry or in this province.
