Opposition MLA Leanne Rowat is pleased the NDP has a strategy to help grandparents.

The grand relations strategy is a 5 point plan to resolve access and guardianship disputes.

Rowat, the Tory MLA for Minnedosa, has been lobbying for change.


She spent the past year conducting 10 information gathering sessions across the province.


Rowat says she likes most of what the NDP has proposed but adds she needs to look at the whole proposal.


She says grandparents lose touch with grandchildren through deaths, relocation and divorce.

She would like to see changes in place by the end of this year.
