The social workers who failed to act to save little Kawliga Potts’ life may still be working for the Alberta government.
Kawliga was killed by his foster mother while in provincial care in 2007.
He lived a horrific life of neglect at the hands of his biological family.
The day Kawliga was taken into care, reports described his home as filthy, with a strong odor of garbage, feces, and urine. The only food in the house was a bottle of beer.
But Kawliga’s nightmare was just beginning.
Watch my video to see all the times the province failed to intervene to save this little boy.
Kawliga's foster mother was convicted of killing him in 2011 is now serving an 8-year sentence for manslaughter for her part in the catastrophic brain injury that ended his life.
But what about the social workers who failed him? Where are they now?
Children's services minister Danielle Larivee was asked if social workers involved in supervising Kawliga still work for the province and all she could say was “their status varies”.
We don't know if any of them were directly fired because of their role in their negligent supervision of little Kawliga because Larivee won't say. We need to know they aren't supervising another child.
What do these government workers have to do to lose their jobs? A baby is dead. A woman is in jail after killing him while being closely watched by the by the government.
I thought this government might be good at protecting kids, given how many of them are social workers.
But it looks like they are really good at protecting their own.
