Opposition leader Carole James has pointed to a report by the provincial children’s watchdog, on recommendations she made for improvements last February.
The NDP leader notes the watchdog found no progress on wait lists and monitoring outcomes and, limited progress on serving aboriginal children and families.
However, Children’s Minister Tom Christensen says, the government has tripled funding for special needs children since 2001.
But that note he also sayd, he takes the new report seriously and, is working to improve the special needs services.
