We're limited again by the lack of survey data at the time, but this is one of the better treatments of the 1971 PC win.

"I never meant to imply that they didn't do enough; I was still talking in generalities." He said he believes the grandparents did everything they could to protect Elizabeth. Griffiths, 38, also said many of his comments were of a more general nature. He was trying impress that civil servants do everything they can in these situations, and they are not necessarily at fault when a child dies.
What Griffiths clearly doesn't understand is that the agencies designed to protect and care for the children of this province do not do enough. Together, child services, the police and doctors agreed it was in the best interest of the child to stay with the mother. A toddler is unable to defend themselves verbally or physically against injustice.
In the past few years, the AB government has come under fire repeatedly after reports of neglect, physical abuse, emotional abuse, and even death of children in foster homes. These children were taken from dangerous situations and placed in loosely controlled, and even more dangerous situations. At the governments hands.
The only thing anyone in government right should be saying and doing is calling for an in-depth investigation on how the agencies responsible let this happen, and how to ensure children are truly protected in this province.
This man wants to be Premier?
Shannon Phillips, who tipped me off to this, said: "You know, because sending people to jail for stealing $36 worth of groceries is a good use of our taxpayers' money."
Our government made the call it is better to use MORE tax payer money to incarcerate (often single mothers) for petty crimes than use less to work with those who make mistakes.
The Alberta Advantage?
So often I hear that women have "made it" and that why should men be punished for women who cannot or will not work as much as men will and do. I call bull shit every time. Women do not earn less because they work less hard or less often as men - they just earn less. Period.
