A profanity-laced video that shows a staff member with Children’s Services Alberta (CSA) making comments to an Indigenous child welfare advocate has led to the worker being put on leave according to the ministry.

The video, shared widely on social media, was taken earlier this week in the parking lot of the Forest Lawn children’s services office in southeast Calgary.
