'The youth are saying there needs to be change' in Quebec's Youth Protection system
The commission looking into Quebec's Youth Protection system wrapped up its first week of hearings, and one of those who testified was Care Jeunesse president Jennifer Dupuis, who works with those in the system once they turn 18.
"My testimony was to speak about what the voice of the youth are saying, and the youth are saying that there needs to be change," said Dupuis. "There needs to be more quality service provided to youth while they're in care, and there needs to be support for youth when they're leaving care."
The Laurent Commission was formed after a 7-year-old girl was killed in Granby after alleged mistreatment from those watching her.
