NDP CYFS Critic Gerry Rogers

NDP Child, Youth and Family Services critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John’s Centre) is not at all happy that she was right about the new home for vulnerable youths in Stephenville. That home, along with others in the province, was awarded to a for-profit operator in tenders announced two months ago.

NDP Child, Youth and Family Services critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John’s Centre) says the speed at which the department plans to change the way the most vulnerable children are sheltered is a reflection of the lack of planning the department has done – and will inevitably hurt the people they are supposed to be protecting.

 

NDP Child, Youth and Family Services critic Gerry Rogers (MHA, St. John’s Centre) wants to know what government is doing to protect children and provide support for at-risk families.

Today in the House of Assembly, Rogers questioned proposed living arrangements for children who have been removed from their families by Child, Youth and Family Services officials.
