Under the Child, Youth and Family Act of Alberta, anyone who makes known the identity of a child who has been under Ministry Direction can be fined $10,000 or imprisoned. I have stood at vigils - one in particular remains etched in my soul - the mom had to ask journalists present at her baby girl's vigil to turn off cameras in fear of those consequences. Another human being employed by the Province took that little girl's life and yet, the natural mother is prevented from speaking her own child's name. Yes, there is much wrong that needs to change!
