Mississauga daycare operator facing manslaughter trial

The Toronto Star

In less than three years, there have three devastating deaths of children in unlicensed home daycares. The Mississauga operator, April Luckese, has now been charged with manslaughter in the death of toddler Duy-An Nguyen. In light of the new charges, advocates are calling for more information surrounding these incidents.

Joan Arruda, board member of the Home Child Care Association of Ontario, and operator of the largest non-profit licensed home child care agency in Greater Toronto said, “It concerns me, because how can we fix problems if we don’t know what the specific issues are?” Andrea Calver, coordinator for the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care commented “as advocates, it’s much harder for us to hold the government to account when we don’t know what happened.”

    There were issues in the life of the woman mentioned in this article that lead up to this tragic moment. She was taking in more children than she could handle. She also wasn’t treating her own kids very well. These are reasons why I removed my child months before the incident happened. She definitely was not the character she was made out to be in court. And she only gets to serve 2 years for her horrific crime. She’s now out and free to come and go as she pleases. Where is the justice in this? Prayers for the innocent life that was taken.
