ALIGN REQUEST FOR AGENCY/EXPERTS PARTICIPATION
At the announcement of the Child intervention review panel ALIGN Board members and our ED crafted a letter to Premier Notely, the Minister at the Time, and the leaders of the opposition to remind them that child intervention should be a nonpartisan issue. We also encouraged the panel have some experts from the field on it. The new Minister has appointed Drs Bruce MacLaurin, University of Calgary, Peter Choate, Mount Royal University and Patty, Lubecan- Benson from Native Friendship Centre. We feel this is a great place for local experts to have impact on the system and inform the those that are also sitting on the panel about the complex nature of this work.
