Last month, Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond stated the ministry of children and family development's good practice action plan is "highly abstract, avoids making specific commitments where they should be made, and remains only 'a draft plan' to which further amendments must be anticipated. On key areas there may be no real action for years, even if the broad principles and objectives in the plan are laudable ones." But it appears the province's child and youth representative isn't the only one who sees deficiencies in that plan, which was first reported on by Public Eye. According to minutes from First Call's last meeting, Children and Family Tom Christensen has "acknowledged the plan contains unrealistic timelines." Fancy that!
