The long-awaited report into how Manitoba social services failed five-year-old Phoenix Sinclair will be released on Friday, the province announced this morning.

For almost two years, a public inquiry examined the horrific death of the young girl, who bounced in and out of foster care before she was murdered in 2005.

Commissioner Ted Hughes was tasked with determining why the little girl slipped through the cracks and how her death went undiscovered for months.

The government had said that election rules prohibited it from releasing the 1,000-page report during the recent byelection period. On Tuesday, those votes were held, clearing the way for the report to be released. Conservatives were elected Tuesday in Morris and Arthur-Virden.

It’s expected that Hughes’ report will contain numerous recommendations for reform of the province’s child and family services system.
