Change in priorities is needed
Re: City Watchdog, Sept. 20-26
Thank you for your article ‘Innocence Stolen every day on our streets’. Yes, we are all part of the problem and the solution. How is it that in our province, in Canada, that so many young women are having to survive maltreatment that sends them onto the streets? Yes, we can elect politicians that mean what they say: “families first.” For many years we have had inadequate support in schools for troubled students and families. Let’s reinstate counsellors so that families can be supported up front, not waiting ’til children are on the streets or in detention. I think it’s time for a change in priorities.
