We wrote to Premier John Horgan on June 26th. Just over a month later, we received this reply on his behalf, from Katrine Conroy, the Minister of Child and Family Development.
On April 12th, 2018, Premier Horgan committed to expanding and improving supports to youth transitioning from care through the development of an action plan created by the cross-ministry working group. On October 23, 2019, he built on that commitment by meeting with our youth representatives, listening to our stories, and spending more than the allotted meeting time with us. It was time to write to him as a reminder of his commitment to our community.
