Yukon government orders external review of abuse and neglect inside group homes

The Yukon government has ordered an external review of problems inside the territory’s group homes.

The review will be undertaken by the territory’s child and youth advocate.

For months whistleblowers, former staff and kids in care have reported issues of abuse and neglect.

The issue has dominated the legislature until the government was forced to move.
