The head of the Alberta Foster Parent Association says media questioning of foster care should not be allowed.

 

The comment followed a damning media investigation that found the number of children who have died in government care is nearly triple the official numbers.

 

In a news conference Wednesday in Edmonton, the Alberta government spoke out in support of the foster care system. A joint Edmonton Journal/Calgary Herald investigation released Monday concluded a total of 145 children died in government care since 1999 but the province only reported 56 of those deaths.

 

Speaking as part of a panel of foster care supporters, Katherine Jones said media reports questioning foster care "should not be allowed."
