The grandmother of a baby girl who was left in a Nova Scotia parking lot said that Community Services was aware that living conditions in the child’s home were not good.
CBC News reported that the grandmother, who cannot be identified under the Children and Family Services act, said she called the agency several times in the last few months to report her teenage daughter.
A Whitney Pier woman found the 14-month-old baby sleeping in a stroller behind a convenience store that had not yet opened on August 29.
The grandmother said she sometimes took care of the baby, but that Child Services would insist she be returned home.
"In my opinion they should be accountable for what's happened and I told them that when I returned the child last time," she told CBC News. "I said it won't end until they do something."
She stated that the parents should get help with mental health issues, domestic disputes and anger management.
The baby is now in foster care.
