Sask. Education minister appoints administrators for 3 private schools after abuse allegations

A $25 million class action lawsuit has been filed against Mile Two Church Inc., which operates LCA, and police have also confirmed they are investigating.

The government has come under scrutiny from former students and the official opposition for its handling of the situation.

Duncan said independent schools are now required to notify the minister within 24 hours once they know the school or anyone working at the school is the subject of a criminal investigation.
