Conservatives Endorse Divorce Reform

March 19, 2005 permalink

The following policy statement was adopted by the Conservative Party on Saturday, March 19, at their convention in Montreal:

Shared Parenting:

A Conservative government will make the necessary changes to the Divorce Act to ensure that in the event of a martial breakdown, the Divorce Act will allow both parents and all grandparents to maintain a meaningful relationship with their children and grandchildren, unless it is clearly demonstrated not to be in the best interests of the children.

The policy was adopted with strong support and almost no opposition.

At the provincial level, all major Ontario parties support the current family destruction apparatus. But at the federal level, the Conservative Party seems to have the best policies on family law.
