Mother Of 3 yr Old Girl Also Cloverdale Rodeo Racist
Sad story made all the more interesting given the mother's history.
Mother of dead 3-year-old Surrey girl says she meant no harm
Jeremy Hunka/Global News
The mother of Charlee Johanson, the three-year-old who died in Surrey yesterday, is devastated over the tragic events of the past week.
“I wish I could have traded places with her, just so she could live and be with her sister. Everyone loves her,” said Jennifer Johanson today.
“This feels like a complete nightmare that I can’t wake up from.”
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) was later called and has since assumed conduct of this investigation. IHIT investigating death of a 3-year-old girl in Surrey
Charlee was rushed to hospital on February 11, but succumbed to her injuries yesterday. Jennifer says Charlee fell off a laundry basket and bumped her head on February 10, but seemed to be fine.
However, the next day she was dizzy and had a loss of appetite. A seizure soon followed and Charlee was rushed to hospital.

IHIT says there are questions about the death and they are investigating. But Johanson says there was no malice involved.
“She’s a three-year-old. How many three-year-olds have you seen that don’t like to jump on things? I don’t understand why,” she said, before breaking into tears.
“I don’t know.”
This isn’t the first time Global News has spoken to Jennifer. In May 2013, she was caught on camera making racially-charged comments to a demonstrator outside the Cloverdale Rodeo.
IHIT spokeswoman Sgt. Stephanie Ashton says it could take some time to determine what happened and if charges will be laid.
“There’s something about this that doesn’t make sense. The hardest part for the public, and for us, is that it can take days for us to find out what that really means,” said Ashton.
“Sometimes something that’s suspicious turns out not to be, and sometimes it turns out that it is.”
Jennifer is emphatic that in this case, it’s the former.
“Why would I give birth to a child that I want to harm? I don’t understand.”
Terrible situation, mother is a bigot but unless there is evidence that suggests it was more then an accident it's a little early for a witch hunt. I'm just trying to imagine being in that situation if it was indeed an accident, for most people there children are the most precious and important thing in their life.
It's tragic, if there is no malicious racist or not I feel bad for her. If it's found to not be or she was negligent in some way well that would change every thing.
The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place... and I donīt care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain't about how hard you hit... It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. Thatīs how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth. - Rocky Balboa
Probably going to get flamed for this (flame suit on) but,
trashy mother, lack of any respect for anyone and unfortunately she was blessed with a beautiful child and probably does not deserve to be a mother. R.I.P baby girl and it's a sad day for sure but given the "character" of this women, it doesn't surprise me that this happened.
Just a sad sad situation...I couldnt give a crap if the mother was racsist or not. A child is dead, and it 'appears' to be an accident. I trust that justice will prevail......sad reality that this world is minus a life that didnt even get a chance to live itself out. :-(
Well something during autopsy or whatever it was must have come up suspicious in the death, otherwise IHIT wouldnt be involved. If it was an accident the coroner/medical examiner whatever can tell, but something must be off so they called for the investigation.
But of course, innocent until proven guilty.
RIP little one.
