Fredericton - David Coon, MLA for Fredericton South and Leader of the Green Party of New Brunswick issued the following statement in recognition of Universal Children's Day on Friday, November 20.
“The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child tasks governments with the responsibility to protect children from all forms of harm. I am pleased to see that the office of the Child and Youth Advocate has developed a strategy for us to do just that: Keeping Children and Youth Safe from Harm in New Brunswick
As one youth is quoted in the report:
The Child and youth teams that government established in Charlotte County and on the Acadian Peninsula are keeping children and youth safe in these regions. It’s time to put them in schools all across New Brunswick.”
