Here we go again, another misinformed Liberal biased rant from the man affectionately known as Fletcher. Back on Oct. 25 he wrote about developmentally disabled people in B.C.’s care system.
Of course since “his Grandfather worked in an institution” this has now made Fletcher an expert.
I was surprised that it took him 10 paragraphs before he came to his always predictable conclusion, that it’s all the NDP’s fault.
Perhaps Mr. F will be enlightened to know that a new report obtained through Freedom of Information found the government’s recent push to place developmentally disabled adults in family homes has gone off the rails in at least at one private agency in Vancouver.
Community Living B.C. has closed 65 group homes because there were only 200 residents.
CLBC have been pushing for adult adoptions rather than institutions with shift workers.
The NDP have called for a moratorium on group home closures as well as an advocate for developmentally disabled people.
Fletcher and his Liberal party plan to offload yet another government responsibility onto the backs and into the homes of British Columbians.
Perhaps Mr. F would like to step up to the plate and offer up his home while experiencing the struggle first-hand, of coping with the challenging behavior of a disabled adult. Some things are better left to the real experts.
