BRANTFORD – An emotional board of directors of Brant Family and Children's Services has voted in an unprecedented step to resign together after failing to get provincial officials to address a deficit they say was created by the government.

"Kids could die," said Andy Koster, executive director of the Brantford agency.

The board sent the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services a message in June, warning that if it didn't get "sufficient and meaningful assurance by July 5 that the ministry would address its funding problems, it would resign."
