The B-C government has chosen federal election day to release its response to the Paige report.
The children’s watchdog released the scathing report back in May, detailing how social workers and others ignored and neglected the aboriginal girl in government care.
Not long after she aged out of the system, Paige died of a drug overdose in a park on the Downtown Eastside. She was 19.
As CKNW has reported previously, the government has set up a rapid-response team to better co-ordinate services for at-risk kids in that neighbourhood.
It also plans more training for front-line workers and to remind service providers to report whenever a child may be at risk of harm.
