Serenity case: Minister Ganley responds to charges
Kathleen Ganley, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General, issued the following statement after charges were announced in the Serenity case:
“Albertans were heartbroken when they first heard Serenity’s tragic story.
“As a government, as legislators, and as a society that wants every child to be safe and healthy, we heard Serenity’s story as a call to action – a symbol of why we must never stop doing everything we can to prevent tragedies like this one.
“Three years is a long time to wait for a family who has already suffered such heartbreaking loss. And we know that Serenity’s family, and Albertans, want answers.
“The professionals in the RCMP and the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service have been working diligently to ensure their investigation has carefully and thoroughly considered all avenues.
“The proceedings will occur in open court and the last thing I want to do is compromise the integrity of this case, so I will not be commenting further.”
