Teen’s suicide prompts calls for changes to child sexual exploitation law – Edmonton – CBC News

The province has accepted new recommendations from a report on sexual exploitation and youth suicide, while the advocate who wrote it claims the Alberta government has been too slow to act.

The Office of the Child and Youth Advocate of Alberta released findings Tuesday of its investigation into the death of 17-year-old Onessa, whose name was changed to protect her family’s identity.

The teenager died by suicide, five months after child intervention services ended involvement with her.
