Now, a South River couple who went through the system at the same time want the same treatment, and Tory health critic Sheila Osborne says that would only be fair.

Osborne, who has been working on their behalf, says the same rules should apply to both couples."One couple was treated differently than another because they were constituents of the premier's," she said.

...
When Tory community services critic Sheila Osborne read the Ontario file on Toddler B, it was the worst she'd ever seen.
And she blames the little girl's tragedy on social-worker burnout due to massive caseloads and workloads.
Earlier this year, a consultant's report on Newfoundland's social workers painted a disturbing picture of excessive workloads, resource shortages and a desperate need for substantial increases in personnel.
The consulting firms HRD Group and Goss Gilroy Inc. found workload to be above acceptable standards, and recommended an increase in personnel of at least 15 to 20 per cent.
The report concluded excessive workloads are having a negative impact on client services and worker stress.
...
The case of Toddler B is a gut-wrenching result of that overwork, Osborne says.The file is so horrifying, she could only read it a few pages at a time.
"The mother of the child asked that (the father) not be given custody and she warned the social worker that he did have a history of violence," Osborne says.
"Their workloads are so great, they don't have the time to get into the background of every piece of information that comes to them on every case.That results in our most vulnerable citizens then are jeopardized, and greatly jeopardized."
Last year, Osborne began seeking answers from the Department of Health and Community Services as to why Toddler B was ever placed in her father's care.
In October, then-director of Child, Youth and Family Services Marilyn McCormack wrote Osborne that in 1997, a social worker was made aware of an allegation that the father had assaulted Toddler B's mother.
However, since he had engaged in counselling sessions and appeared to be a concerned father and in a new and stable relationship, family court agreed to grant him custody that November.Two days later, the case was closed.
In 1998, there were allegations Toddler B's father assaulted the woman in that "stable relationship."Child, Youth and Family Services got involved again.
Toddler B was being cared for by her paternal uncle and his partner.Then the three of them and her father relocated to Ontario.
...
McCormack told Osborne: "In summary, the decision to grant custody of (Toddler B) to her father occurred in 1997.All indicators at that time pointed to (Toddler B's) best interest being served by living with her father."
Osborne isn't satisfied with the response.
"I didn't think that it gave answers and - it could be, once again, as a result of social-worker workload - it looked like there was a satisfactory conclusion when there wasn't."
A 2001 Ontario child protection document on Toddler B appears to shift a lot of blame to her father's partner.It is a grim portrait of a little girl's life.
"(The father's girlfriend) said Toddler B had lots of toys in her toy box, but the box was in the closet of her bedroom and (Toddler B's) bed was too heavy for her to move it away from the closet door to obtain her toys," the report states.
...
The grandmother, with the help of Osborne, is in the process of getting her son back, seven years after he was placed in care.
Toddler B's mother wants another chance, too.She says Child Services has told her she hasn't improved her life - she isn't in school or working.She has no job - her record dogs her.But she wants to take courses at MUN.
She's been with a partner now for nearly three years.He's a labourer and they aren't on social assistance.But Child Services refused to do a home visit, she says.
"It's so tiring when you're trying to fight like that and they bring everything up.Sure I was young, I made mistakes.I've straightened my life up now.I mean, I've got a good life," she says.
There's little, if any, hope she'll get a chance now.

Complaints of excessive wait times at the Health Sciences Centre has Opposition Health Critic Sheila Osborne calling for major changes to the system.
During the past week, Osborne received two separate calls from distraught families waiting in an emergency room at the hospital for a bed. One woman had been there for four days while her husband, a stroke patient with a brain tumor, waited restlessly in the noisy emergency department.
The woman, who didn't want her name published, called an ambulance after her husband had a seizure last Sunday.By Wednesday, she was so distraught with the waiting that she called Osborne for help.
"He was getting very agitated," the woman said of her husband - who can't talk and is paralysed on one side of his body."It was very difficult on us, being there on a stretcher with people coming and going all day and night."
She says the worst thing was watching others admitted to other floors while her husband lay helpless.Because her husband is a neurology patient, he had to wait for a bed on that ward.When one finally opened, the woman said, it was on a virtually empty ward - something she doesn't understand.
"I'm assuming there wasn't enough staff," she said."The ward wasn't open, but why couldn't they just give him a bed on another floor?Or why couldn't they have opened that ward sooner?"
Another case brought to Osborne's attention was one of a terminally ill 61-year-old woman.The cancer patient was brought into the emergency room last Thursday afternoon with a blood clot in her leg.She didn't get a room until 36 hours later.
...
Osborne blames the lack of resources allocated to health care.
"The system is totally backed up and mismanaged," she says."We need to (in the short term) put more resources in to get more beds so the system can level out."
