CHILDREN’S REMOVAL FROM HOME PROMPTS CALL FOR APOLOGY
Kelly Regan, Nova Scotia’s community services minister has been asked to apologize to a woman after two of her children were mistakenly taken away by Child Protective Services for four weeks. The case was raised in the legislature Friday by PC critic Barbara Adams. She said the children — an infant and a seven-year-old — were taken by police after a report the woman had tested positive for illicit drugs. “The positive test belonged to someone else,” Adams said. It took another three weeks before the children were returned.
