Warning on Mediation From Retired Ministry of Children and Family Development Worker

 MEDIATION - THE POISONED APPLE OF CHILD PROTECTION

Ray Ferris has written another timely piece today. Ray is an occasional contributor who provides sage counsel because of his years working with the Ministry of Children and Family Development. He meets many families who are struggling to recover their children from MCFD and is justifiably critical of the cruel bureaucratic delays. Today he writes about Mediation and expresses caution.

Mediation-the Poisoned Apple.
Social and administrative law, such as the ‘Child, Family And Community Services Act’, has certain aims and intentions.

Reasonable Doubt: Coercion and the loss of all privacy if you’re a parent

I have spent the majority of my career practicing criminal law. I was well versed in Charter rights that protect people from state intrusions on people’s privacy. In fact, I have written extensively over the past two years on this topic in this column.

So nothing prepared me for what I was to encounter when I packed it all in, moved back to Vancouver Island, and opened my own shop offering services in many different areas including family law.

What I have quickly learned is that in family disputes involving the state, as a parent, you have no expectation of privacy: no expectation of privacy

Canada - When Foster Care Hurts

A HIDDEN HORROR

Canadians would be "horrified" if they knew what happens to former foster kids, says Stephen Gaetz, a York University education professor who has spent the past two decades researching youth homelessness.

The problem is, we don't know.

No Canadian jurisdiction systematically tracks young people, he reports, after they leave foster care.

"I'd love to know, over five years [between age 19 and 24], what happens to them," says Gaetz. "What percent are going to school, what's going on? How are their transitions being managed?"

However, a Ministry spokesperson did explain that data

Ayn Van Dyk your daddy loves you.

Ayn Van Dyke

We are concerned about the Child Protection Industry world wide, children are being taken from all over the world, children like Ayn Van Dyk who was taken from her parents in British Columbia back in 2011 without her parents consent at the time her father was her sole carer. Some people would think that Ayn Van Dyk has been legally kidnapped, and it would be true that Ayn Van Dyk has indeed been legally kidnapped.

Nightmares are dreams too......this is my true story.

I was born in India but I do not know my actual birth date. I always felt strongly and have fleeting memories that I was well loved and cared for in the early part of my life. Around the age of 3 or 4 years old while I was sleeping, a woman stole me from my bed and my family in the night. The details are too much to go into but this link will tell the story of my early years http://www.missingindiankids.com/searching/vanessa/ 

I then arrived at Holy Angels Convent in Thiruvananthapuram kerala India in 1974. I was taken very good care of

Reports reveal unbroken toll of tragedy among children and youth

Today, a child or youth in or recently released from the care of the Crown in B.C. is likely to die or be "critically injured."

That chilling conclusion is unavoidable after reviewing a succession of easily available public reports.

Between June 2007 and September 2012, according to B.C.'s Representative for Children and Youth, 504 children and youth perished while receiving care.

Nineteen Eighty Four

Big Brother, is he watching or isn't he?

That is the question.

When George Orwell wrote about Big Brother in the book 1984 published in 1949, he had already be sent to a sanatorium eleven years before.  He had been a policeman and to war. He published Animal Farm in 1945, three years before Big Brother.

Why am I writing that here?

Well, because good folks, Big Brother is watching you, he is doing all this to you, and like all of you I see Michael is in fear of his life or arrest, which to him is his life, plus we already know they killed his son, so why would he think that his life means
