B.C.’s Legislature will be sitting Wednesday for the last session before the provincial election.
In what will likely be a heated session leading up to people casting their ballots in May, the NDP will be grilling the government about what is being done to improve the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
This comes on the heels of a damning report from B.C.’s children’s watchdog.
It detailed years-long failures that led to the suicide of 18 year-old Alex Gervais while in government care.
Gervais was placed in 17 different living locations, some just hotels, with 23 different caregivers.
Opportunities were missed by the MCFD to place Gervais with his step-mother, or aunt, who both wanted to take him.
Also likely to come up is the Premier’s apology to the NDP and leader John Horgan over false accusations that the NDP hacked into the Liberal Party website, when in truth, the Liberal Party erroneously made private information publicly accessible.
“I apologized to John for comments I made earlier this week, it is another further proof of the fact that when we jump to conclusions and we make a mistake, we should own up to it and I have no problem saying sorry,” Clark said Friday.
South Delta MLA Vicki Huntington says it was actually her staff who stumbled upon personal private information on the site.
