Adoption the focus of North Coast MLA's Legislature Statement of Monday

November is Adoption Awareness month in British Columbia and to mark the occasion, North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice spoke to the topic as part of Monday afternoon's statements period of the Afternoon session of the Legislature.

Ms. Rice made note of the 1,000 children currently in the care of the government of British Columbia who are waiting to be adopted and observed as to some of the benchmarks in the provinces care system which see those children in permanent foster care advised by the government that they are officially on her own.

During the course of her short statement to the Chamber, Ms. Rice recounted some of the positive things that have developed in British Columbia's adoption process and applauded the Minister of Children and Family development for some of the government's efforts to help to improve adoption rates in the province.
