Opposition calling on province to report child care deaths

The Wildrose and NDP are calling on the Redford government to confirm that another child has died in provincial care.

Reports suggest a young girl with development disabilities died over the weekend in an Edmonton group home.

In a release, NDP Human Services critic Rachel Notley says the province needs to confirm the death, and commit to reporting every death of a child in their care.

The Wildrose echoes those comments, adding that the limited release of information on these deaths serves the interest of no one.

The Redford government has yet to comment.
