874. Xyolhemeylh aka Fraser Valley Aboriginal Children and Family Services Society
Xyolhemeylh aka Fraser Valley Aboriginal Children and Family Services Society was only provide a mother her sons clothes and few personal properties when she came to the group home where he was placed. The reason for that was that her son had died. The authorities were quick to have him cremated so an autopsy was not possible.
Later journalists after som investigation were able to connect other deaths with this firm who cashes in from the tax-payers money.
However, all the money and research did not help 17-year-old Traevon Chalifoux-Desjarlais. He remains dead and his relatives must live with the grief for the rest of their lives.
When nothing seems to be investigated properly when a child dies, it is safe to say that it cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
