Manitoba changes how it counts kids in care, abruptly reducing number


Manitoba is changing how it counts the number of children in its care to exclude hundreds of cases like Tina Fontaine's amid concerns it is being unfairly compared to other provinces.

The 15-year-old, who was killed in 2014, was placed into the care of Child and Family Services voluntarily by her guardians. Unlike other provinces, Manitoba counts kids in voluntary placement agreements in its total number of 10,293 children in its care.
