Dear editor,

Re: Death of four-year-old girl Serenity in government care in 2014

Premier Notley, nothing has been done to ensure that these things will change. It seems a lack of compassion exists within our government circles. The state of the welfare situation is not anything that I would consider as worthy of Alberta.

Mr. Irfan Sabir, minister responsible, certainly has proven that he is not capable of handling this position, so why is he still in charge?

I am concerned about the children in Third World countries and know that the conditions are not that much better here within the child welfare system.

Why do we not have a scheduled visit arrangement that checks on all children that are placed until we are satisfied that the care and nurturing provided are adequate and then have a visitation plan that makes sure that the child lives in a home of love and care?

Please advise me what steps you are taking. Thank you.

Cecil Colwell, Wetaskiwin
