Saskatchewan's former child advocate says the government initially made some good progress on helping kids, but Bob Pringle says the effort stalled. Pringle's six-year stint as Saskatchewan's advocate for children and youth ended yesterday. Pringle says in the last two provincial budgets, there's been virtually no progress in fetal alcohol spectrum disorder services, autism services or programs for vulnerable three and four-year-olds. (The former advocate says he understands there are budgetary pressures. But he says with the conditions facing children at risk, some decisions are being made that are exacerbating problems.)
