A World Fit for Children

Commentary by Sherri Torjman

In this commentary, Sherri Torjman describes what a world fit for children entails. She highlights the vision of Senator Landon Pearson who, she contends, has worked tirelessly for many years to create such a world. Such a world is one in which children have adequate nutrition, clothing and shelter and where parents, schools, communities and neighbourhoods nurture them. Torjman pays tribute to Senator Pearson who, she suggests, worked to ensure children have the best possible start and opportunities to develop in a safe and supportive environment.
