They’re praising Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for being a partner with First Nations.
Now, the Sto:lo Tribal Council in B.C. has written an open letter to the premier calling for the same thing.
And Chief Doug Kelly says members think one way Christy Clark can do this is by firing Bob Plecas.
He’s the former deputy minister of the children and family development department who released a review last week. He has another report coming out this spring.
Kelly and other Aboriginal groups called the findings disrespectful and self-serving.
“I wrote to the premier and requested a meeting to talk about the death (of Alex Gervais) and her blaming of the Fraser Valley Aboriginal Children and Family Services Society…. I still haven’t received a response from the premier’s office. Am I confident? No.”
Last fall, the 18-year-old Gervais plunged from a window of the Abbotsford hotel where he was placed while under government care and died.
The letter also praises children’s watchdog Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond and her dedication to improving children and family services.
The government has said it accepts all of Plecas’ recommendations, including hiring more frontline social workers.
