The BC government says it's taking action to reduce domestic violence.
It's released a so-called "Action Plan" in response to a scathing report by the Child and Youth representative into the 2008 murders of three children in Merritt by their father.
The plan calls for training more than 20-thousand professionals on addressing domestic violence over the next two years including school personnel, support workers and community partners.
And the government says a broader three year plan to address domestic violence will be rolled out in 2013.
The report into the Schoenborn murders found the tragedy could have been prevented if even current procedures had been followed.
