Earlier this month, the ministry of children and family development quietly posted copies of its revised good practice action and an accompanying operational framework on its Website. Those documents are the culmination of a consultation effort that got underway last July. But, despite their importance, a spokesperson for the children and youth representative says the ministry hasn't yet given Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond a briefing about that plan. Nevertheless, the spokesperson said Ms. Turpel-Lafond is "looking forward" to that briefing. And would be "happy" to discuss the issue once she has received "more info from the ministry on it."
