Angie Robinson’s sister was in Victoria Monday to discuss what was learned from Robinson’s suicide and the murder of Robinson’s 16-year-old son.
Michelle Watson and Inclusion BC announced a plan to address recommendations from the coroner’s inquest into the April 2014 murder-suicide of Angie and Robert Robinson.
Inclusion BC Executive Director Faith Bodnar called on the government to partner with her organization, saying the situation for parents of children and youth with developmental disabilities is getting worse.
Bodnar says she’s not sure about the price of the proposal, but adds there is a huge cost to not supporting families and people with special needs and developmental disabilities.
Bodnar called the deaths of Angie and Robert Robinson a tragedy that could have been prevented.
A coroner’s inquest in Prince Rupert last month issued 24 recommendations after noting that Robinson repeatedly asked for help but received little empathy or support.
