PROPOSED IMPROVEMENTS FOR CHILD PROTECTION.
This is based on material I wrote at the request of some NDP members of the legislative assembly for the election of 2009.
The British Seebohm Commission of the 1960s noted that there were many problems of a non-administrative nature in the British social services and they could not be solved by administrative changes. This is important to remember because there have been many serious problems in the child protection services of British Columbia, but the repeated attempts at solving them have only been through administrative and legal devices, which have always failed. Indeed it could be argued that they have sometimes made the situation worse.
