MCFD 9-year old

BC - A Global New video shows a blurred out foster parent and in the background, the plaintive voice of a 9 year old native child, distraught at being told he has to leave the foster home he has lived in from birth, and go to his birth mother and sister.

The man ("John") refers to him as "son". The child called him "daddy".

MCFD social worker Trisha Myers, manager of issue management went on camera to say "there is protocols in place for foster parents..."  (meaning, rather than go to a TV station, go through proper channels to get someone to listen to).

Anyways, the point of this blog is that the story had a comments section, and that was quickly populated by people who stated the story was one-sided. The comments were not in favour of MCFD or the foster parent's position. Shortly thereafter, the comments section was closed with the following message:

What is readily apparent is that although MCFD has "protocols" in place to ensure a gradual transition back to the parents, this apparently was not in place.

The author of the story did not get the mom's side. Not answered also, was what event occurred that cause the child to be returned back to his birth mom after being removed at birth?
