First Nations agency not doing mandatory checks on mother who killed son, fatality inquiry hears


March 10, 2020

When a mother from a southern Alberta First Nation killed her two-year-old son, she was supposed to be under a 24-hour monitoring order by the community's child and family services department, but it wasn't being enforced, according to a police officer who investigated the child's death.

This information was presented at a fatality inquiry that got underway Monday. A Calgary judge is examining the circumstances that led to the death of the child, whose mother was already under police investigation for child abuse.
