The NDP’s mishandling of the death of Serenity keeps getting worse.
Serenity was just 4 years old when she was tortured, starved, sexually abused and killed while in kinship care 2.5 years ago. Kinship care is family based foster care but it’s still under the direct supervision of the government.
Serenity didn’t die when the NDP were in power but everything the NDP have done with regard to baby Serenity since then has been a disaster.
The NDP forgot to get Serenity justice, by forgetting to turn over part of her file to the RCMP so they could investigate. Then it was revealed that there are still kids in the home under the care of the same people who were caring for Serenity when she died.
Now, questions from the opposition about Serenity elicit smirks and laughter from Premier Rachel Notley. Watch my video to see the petulance and eye rolls from the Premier as she is hammered about how her government failed Serenity. You won’t believe your eyes.
It’s one of the worst things I've seen in politics. Serenity died of a head injury after being starved until she was the size of a one year old baby. And the premier? She’s dishing out attitude like a teenage girl. She’s not taking this seriously at all and what could be more serious than a dead child?
I used to think Rachel Notley was inept, out of her league, ill equipped to govern, and a senseless ideologue, but not necessarily callous. Not evil, just wrong. Now I think Rachel Notley is all those things I thought she was and something much, much worse.
She’s contemptuous, spiteful, belligerent, and heartless. She laughed at a question about a dead baby, when the entire province, and more importantly, the little girl's mother are looking to her for action and leadership.
And all we got was a cocked hip, an eye roll and a smug little chuckle.
