Ms. Turpel-Lafond: It was only a matter of time.

It is a great day for the people of British Columbia, and all the children in B.C. As the truth of what happened to the Ross children in Saskatchewan becomes public knowledge Saskatchewan people will understand why the loss of judge Turpel-Lafond to British Columbia is another sad day for Saskatchewan children and the people of Saskatchewan who have a belief in justice for all.

The Victoria Times Colonist has confirmed that Saskatchewan Provincial court judge, Ms. Turpel-Lafond, will receive final approval by the British Columbia legislature this afternoon as the first representative for children and youth. Ms. Turpel-Lafond will be a independent officer of the British Columbia legislature under a new act that created an advocate for children and families. She will monitor public agencies, and investigate and report on the deaths of children in care.

Sadly Canadians have turn a blind eye to these cases until the child is dead, and then sit on their asses until the next dead child is reported in the media. There are people in Canada who are no longer sitting on their asses. Please visit the Jeffrey Baldwin Memorial Site.
