Alex Gervais's death: at least 23 children housed in B.C. hotels since last November
Questions surrounding the provision of services for children in foster care in B.C. remain after confirmation by the Ministry of Children and Family Development that vulnerable youth have regularly been housed in hotels over the past year.
According to the ministry, 23 foster children have been placed in hotels since November 2014, with an average stay of five days.
But that number is far lower than B.C.'s children's representative believes to be true.
