Mother and grandmother of Granby girl expressed concerns, but, they say, no one paid attention
The mother and grandmother of a little girl in Granby who died Tuesday said they expressed concerns, but the calls for help fell on deaf ears.
"We warned everyone we could, but no one listened,” said the mother in an interview with CTV.
The girl's father and her stepmother have been charged with forcible confinement and the stepmother has also been charged with aggravated assault.
The Crown said murder charges are possible.
"They wouldn't let her have contact with anyone from my family that she knew since birth. They even tried to prevent me from seeing her. I think it's normal that she rebelled", said the mother.
"We fight, we fight, we fight,” said the grandmother, who also spoke with CTV.
"We do so many hours. We go to Human Rights Commission. We go to child protection. We tried everything we could. They did nothing for us", she added.
The family’s identity can't be made public because of a court-ordered publication ban as court proceedings continue.
Among other things, the Quebec government has ordered a coroner's inquest into the child's death.
She was found beaten at home and died in hospital.
