    if she leads her own investigation , wouldn't this make the results of any findings somewhat biased? i feel an independent, out of province agency is warranted and needed here.

    Way to throw the staff under the bus Darlene! That should buy you another paycheque or two. Something stinks in that office and it starts at the top. Time to fire this gasbag.

    All these workers had the oppurnity to voice their concerns. They have never done so nor did they plan to do it. I am a child from a very abusive hosehold and was tortured. I went to them as a child and was brought home again by the police only to be beaten again. I have a medical record larger then anyone in newfoundland and not once did child welfare take me out of the house. So to hear these stories is of no surprise. Its normal for our system and most are used to it. A few come on here to voice their opinion and thats as far as it will go. Nobody will ever step up to the plate and speak for these kids. Its a very sad thing to say but its going to happen and continue to happen until some horrific beating of a child that makes someone step up and take action.

    Same old, same old at the Office of the Child Youth Advocate , I see. Do they actually do much at this expensive office? Have they ever done much?

    No doubt morale at Neville's office is at an all time high. Smiles and high fives all round at the workplace from hell. Why don't Neville and Fitzgerald just duke it out in the parking lot ? A front kick to the gonads and everybody back to work.

    And the children still suffer.

    This appointee should be shown the door. It's everyone's fault but hers.

    Why is Mrs. Neville allowed to remain in this position while her office is besieged with contraversy? If it's not one thing it's another. I say remove her now and let someone run it. The constant lawsuits and public fighting does nothing to improve the already damaged image of child welfare and Mrs, Neville's office. It appears that Mrs. Neville is hanging on to her plum job with every finger nail when she should have been running the shop. Do the right thing , Resign!!!!!

    This province needs to take a close look at the record from the Child and Youth Advocates office. The first advocate left under a shadow of suspicion and now we have Ms. Neville who is always looking for someone to blame rather than taking a good look at herself. Surely the House of Assembly must realize the lack of confidence that is growing with the Advocate's office. What is the role, anyway? Is it not to advocate for better services for children and youth? Have there been any improvements since the advent of the Advocate's office? If so, what are they?

    Three cheers to Ms Neville! It must take tremendous courage to speak the truth and not just roll over.

    The whole matter sounds very complex, which must make action even more difficult for Ms Neville.

    I face many challenges myself with Western Health administrators in Corner Brook on several health care issues related to my mom.

    Is it not time for provincial Town Hall meetings on health care, child and youth, mental health, addictions, etc.?

    Hang in there, Ms Neville.
