Changes could help fix B.C.'s foster care system

Changes could help fix B.C.'s foster care system

On a porch a few blocks from Playland, a tidy shelf holds dozens of pairs of kids’ shoes. There are Crocs and sandals and sneakers. All of them belong to Cory Robinson’s gaggle of kids, two biological and three foster, whom he parents with his long-time girlfriend. Twice a week there are more shoes, when another three former foster kids come for dinner. His goal is to make sure all eight of them—plus the teens he mentors through his outreach job at the Eastside Aboriginal Space for Youth—know who they are, like who they are, and turn 19 ready for financial and emotional independence.
