Not Enough Services, Problems of Isolation Mean Increase in Call for Helps for Kids

The airwaves have been buzzing in Quebec about a report detailing how calls for help to Youth Protection Services have gone up dramatically in the ring of suburbs around Montreal. 

Children bear the brunt of stress in the families frequently.  It's ironic that many of the parents have chosen to move there because they think that life in the far suburbs is going to be better.  But how can you have a decent family life when both parents are working to maintain a "good life" and the social services just aren't there?  Better to stay in the city where services have already been set up, and commute times aren't so long.
