Nine days after her disappearance,  the body of 15 year-old Tina Fontaine was pulled from the Red River in Winnipeg on August 17, 2014. She had been wrapped in plastic and a doona cover. Tina was in the care of the Manitoba Child Care Family Services just a few weeks before she was reported missing.


‘The CFS (Children and Family Services) system has definitely failed Tina Fontaine, the Winnipeg Police Services failed Tina Fontaine and Canadian society failed Tina Fontaine’
