Tory family services critic Ian Wishart said Wednesday other provinces do a better job of minimizing, if not avoiding, the use of such emergency placements. Yet, Manitoba has seen huge spikes in hotel use for children apprehended by Child and Family Services — including last March, when an average of 65 kids were housed in hotels that month. “ It’s clearly something they are not able to deal with,” Wishart said of the Selinger government. There was an average of six kids in CFS care in hotels — under the supervision of private companies — in the month of January. Last month, the number grew to 18. And earlier this week, it reached 25. A Family Services Department spokeswoman said Wednesday if the current trend continues, the average for March will be 23. The latest spike comes despite measures introduced by the province last year to curb hotel use. However, it appears the CFS system is under increasing strain as the overall number of kids in care continues to soar. In January, the total hit an alltime high of 10,673 — a jump of more than 400 compared with a year earlier. On Tuesday, the provincial Tories released police statistics showing the numbers of persons reported missing in Manitoba — mainly kids in CFS care — dwarfs that of other provinces. MTS Internet glitch AN early- morning MTS glitch left Winnipeg Internet customers wondering why the telecommunications company appeared to be filtering their web use. Between midnight and 1: 30 a. m. on Wednesday, while MTS was upgrading equipment, some of the company’s Internet traffic was redirected to a content- filtering site intended only for businesses and parents who’ve opted into that service. For up to 90 minutes, MTS customers trying to visit sites such as the Winnipeg Jets home page and the Free Press found themselves at contentfiltering. mts. net instead. MTS changed its servers to restore web access and is now investigating the cause of the glitch, corporate communications director Melanie McKague said in a statement. She said MTS does not restrict access for any customers other than those who opt into a filtering service. “ To be clear, this inadvertent redirect — which displays the url contentfiltering. mts. net — is used to screen traffic only for those subscribers who have opted in to our Internet parental controls and professional content filter services,” McKague said. “ Put another way, a glitch caused traffic to be routed in a way that is normally only reserved for customers who expressly want, and pay for, these filters.” McKague said she is seeking further explanation for why some large websites, including Google, Reddit and Twitter, could be accessed during the glitch while most others could not. MTS observes net neutrality and does not provide any website with preferential treatment, McKague said. “ We don’t filter content and we also don’t throttle down speeds based on the website,” she said. “ We also don’t give certain sites preferential traffic speeds in exchange for money. “ The only exception to this are measures to filter illegal content, such as child pornography, by using a system called Cleanfeed that is common in the industry.” Inmate dead at Stony THE Correctional Service of Canada says a 64- year- old convicted murderer has been found dead at the minimumsecurity unit of Stony Mountain Institution. Staff performed CPR on Dennis Barry McFadden and emergency services were called, but he could not be resuscitated. McFadden had been serving an indeterminate sentence for first- degree murder since June 4, 1982. According to appeal court documents from British Columbia, McFadden was convicted in the 1979 death of Marion MacKay, for whom he was doing work as a plumber in Saanich, B. C. McFadden did not deny killing MacKay, saying she had been shouting at him about the cost of a repair for a window he had broken. Her naked body, which sustained 26 knife wounds, was found wrapped up in a tarp and hidden in a boat owned by McFadden. As in all cases involving the death of an inmate, the police and the coroner have been notified, and Correctional Service Canada will review the circumstances of the incident. Bigger peat mine ripped AN environment watchdog is condemning the Manitoba government’s decision to allow the expansion of a peat mine near Lake Winnipeg. The issue stems from a decision to grant Sunterra Horticulture Inc. an Environment Act licence to expand its peat- mine operation in the Lake Winnipeg area. Sunterra had put in a request to expand its operations in 2011. “ There is only one way to keep Manitoba peat from accelerating climate change: leave the peat in the ground,” provincial Wilderness Committee campaign director Eric Reder said in a statement. The Wilderness Committee says Manitoba’s peatlands are the province’s best natural defence against global warming, as the peat absorbs significant amounts of climatechanging carbon. When those lands are bulldozed, drained and eventually harvested, the stored carbon is released into the atmosphere. The Wilderness Committee says the province’s own peatland mining report, commissioned through the International Institute for Sustainable Development, showed no definite strategy to help mitigate the release of carbon from peat mining. The NDP government implemented a moratorium on peat mining on new quarry leases in the province in 2011 under the Save Lake Winnipeg Act. The new peat expansion at Sunterra is being permitted because it is situated on old quarry leases. Maternity- aid facility BRANDON — A first- of- its- kind maternity home in Brandon will open its doors to homeless pregnant women starting next month. Brandon’s Crisis Pregnancy Centre has been provided with a rent- free home near Brandon University that can house three women and a house parent. The crisis centre’s director, Loretta Nelson, who did not wish to disclose the exact location of the home, said a government grant they secured made it possible to fix it up and get it movein- ready. “ Housing in Brandon is hard as it is,” Nelson said. “ When you’re pregnant, it’s a little more pressing because you want to be somewhere safe and secure before that baby is born.” The Kairos Maternity Home will officially open on April 1, and tenants will be welcome to move in April 15. The home is for pregnant women between the ages of 16 and 29 who are facing homelessness or at risk of being homeless and have no other children in their care. It will help provide women with a safe place to stay while receiving the support they need during their pregnancy. Women can stay up to six months after their baby is born. — staff / Brandon Sun / CP AROUND Manitoba BRAD YOCHIM / WALLACE FIRE DEPARTMENT / BRANDON SUN Awful aftermath The concrete foundation and twisted steel are all that remain of a hog barn near Kola. The barn was razed by fire Tuesday night, killing all 1,500 hogs inside. ‘ If you can imagine that many pigs in a concealed space basically trapped and on fire, the sounds are pretty bad,’ Wallace Fire Department Chief Brad Yochim said. The barn, owned by HyLife Foods, housed sows, which give birth to piglets that eventually end up at market. The cause of the fire is still being investigated. Kola is 32 kilometres west of Virden.
