    With all due respect to Ms. Fleming's hard work, what we are dealing with here is yet another human interest story brought to us by The Telegram that should be on page 3. The front page of a newspaper is for news, not this.

    In response to Saucy Face's comments. Page 3? Any & All news pertaining to our children's welfare should be on Page 1. What exactly do you call News? It is very clear you do not understand the Whys behind the work she is doing. Keep up the good work Maryann.

    I am glad that Ms Fleming is trying to do something for the children of this province in need of help because the CYFS and Advocate's office certainly are not. All we hear from them is intentions and no action. Minister Burke announced today that it will take 5 yrs to get the system up an running properly, children haven't got that time to wait, they need help now and are not recieving it properly. The advocates office is in shambles, they are not helping the kids they are creating a make work project they will not even address reviews publically, so what does that tell us?
    The problems that are among the system aren't in the hands of SWorkers they are in the hands of gov to do something immediately, if not individuals such as ms fleming & groups have to take it upon themselves. When all hope is lost with the system someone has to stand up and lobby for those who cannot themselves (the children) and I commend her for doing so.

    Since 2002 the Child and Youth Advocate has been nothing but a high paying job for someone to do nothing.
    What the heck is John Rorke doing?
    Why was he chosen?
    He wouldn't even talk with the media.

    Advertise the job and get it filled a.s.a.p.
    and be absolutely certain that the
    chosen candidate genuinely cares about
    children's issues, and not just putting
    his/her big paycheque in the bank.
