At the last meeting of the legislature's select standing committee on children and youth, the province's independent child protection watchdog said the ministry of children and family development has stopped directly responding to her recommendations. Instead, according to Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, the ministry will only respond to those recommendations through the committee. So we're anxious to find out what will happen Wednesday morning, when it does exactly that. According to the committee's agenda, there will also be a discussion of the ministry's Strong, Safe and Supported plan.
