The welfare of Cape Breton's children

More than a hundred people came out to a meeting Friday morning in Sydney River to show their concern over child welfare issues.

They were joined by representatives from Nova Scotia's Department of Community Services --including the executive director of Family and Community Supports, George Savoury.

The Nova Scotia system has been criticized for the way it allows children to move from place to place in foster care, and also for the way it defines which children qualify for help.

The meeting was organized by Delores Feltmate.

She spoke with CBC reporter Hal Higgins.
