Three years ago, children and family development deputy minister Lesley du Toit promised she would be "fully transparent" about plans to transform her department. Now, as we previously reported, she's refusing to give any further personal briefings to the government's independent child protection watchdog about a massive effort to overhaul the way the province's children are protected. So we thought it might also be worth noting the ministry hasn't publicly posted a copy of it's so-called Transformation Update newsletter since February 21, 2007. This, despite the fact the page promoting that newsletter - which was developed to keep key ministry stakeholders "up to date on our progress and direction" - encourages readers to "check back frequently." Fancy that!
