The family of a 15-year-old boy who died in government care is dropping a lawsuit against the province nearly two years after it was filed. Peter Lang’s son Nick died in 2015, just days after being checked into a Campbell River drug treatment facility. Lang and Nick’s mother Linda Tenpas filed the suit in March 2016, alleging a long list of errors that played a role in their son’s death, including a lack of supervision. On Monday, Lang told Global News the lawsuit had always been centered on making changes in the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) and ensuring enough resources were being dedicated to youth mental health and addiction. Lang said problems persist, but with a new government in place, he believes positive change is now on the way.

  • Peter Lang still has an OIPC appeal and the Breach of Privacy investigation in regards to the case of the death of his son.

Guest: Peter Lang
