Young man dies while in care of B.C. aboriginal agency


Another child in the care of one of British Columbia’s delegated aboriginal agencies has died, the latest in a string of tragedies involving children directly or indirectly in government care and bringing back memories of a toddler who died more than a decade ago under the same agency’s care.

In a statement on Thursday, the Nuu-chah-nulth Tribal Council said a young man had recently died while in its care, but provided few other details.

“Given the positive relationship we had developed with the young man, this event has come as a considerable shock to everyone,” the statement said. “He touched a lot of lives in a positive way and we are grieving his loss.”
