RELEASE: Fildebrandt calls for Parents & Children Charter of Rights and Responsibilities

Published on May 07, 2018

EDMONTON, AB: Today Independent-Conservative MLA Derek Fildebrandt called on the NDP to strike an all-party committee to draft a Parents and Children Charter of Rights and Responsibilities.

“Politicians playing politics with the relationship between parents and children serves no one well,” said Fildebrandt. “We need to take a step back from the politics around this and seek to find a consensus around how much involvement the government should have when it comes to the relationship between parents and their children.”

The special all-party committee would be tasked for clarifying the broad rights and responsibilities of parents and children, and clearly defining what rights and responsibilities government has in that relationship.
