SOCIAL SERVICES MINISTER JUNE DRAUDE RESPONDS TO CHILD DEATH

The following is a statement by Social Services Minister June Draude regarding the death of Lee Bonneau:

I want to extend my sincerest sympathy to the family, friends and communities affected by Lee’s death.  My heart goes out to you.
 
Last week, I wrote a letter to the Saskatchewan Advocate for Children and Youth, requesting that his office begin a review of this case.  Given the gravity of this heartbreaking situation, I believe an immediate review is required.

The death of this child in the care of the ministry and the circumstances of his death can only be described as a tragedy.  It is my hope that an independent review led by the Advocate’s office will help us to gain some understanding of how this could have occurred and what, if anything, we can do to prevent another such tragedy from occurring.

The Ministry of Social Services will also be conducting a child death review, and will participate as requested in the review being done by the Advocate’s Office.
