Berland joins representative's office

Jeremy Berland has joined children and youth representative Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond's office. According to a biography posted on the representative's Website, Mr. Berland will be leading "the development and implementation of a province-wide performance monitoring, research and evaluation strategy on B.C. child and youth serving systems." In 2006, Mr. Berland - who was then the province's child protection director - took a controversial government-funded, two-year secondment with the University of Victoria. At the time, provincial New Democrat critic Adrian Dix suggested the government - which was being scrutinized for its involvement in the death of toddler Sherry Charlie - was "scapegoating" Mr. Berland.
