Politicians Switch Sides
June 2, 2005 permalink
Dr Dolores Sicheri has written a letter to the Windsor Star on the current controversy over care for disabled children.
A little over 2 years ago, Mr. Dwight Duncan wanted Linda Taylor and myself to hold a press conference in the media room at Queens Park to tell our stories about the forced termination of parental rights for access to services. He wanted to embarrass the Progressive/Conservatives in the pre-election period. As we did not want to be political pawns, we declined the offer.
Dwight's party is now in power. It is continuing the policies of the PC government. It has done nothing to remedy the problem. Moreover, it has no honourable desire to fix the problem. The Liberals do not get it that the mothers of Ontario have come together publicly to say no more to the abuse of their families and parental rights. They are a formidable force to reckoned with.
These mothers are now demanding a "Royal Commission of Inquiry" into this practice. All these files must be opened and testimony taken from the families. A societal crime has been committed. Justice must be served. Canada cannot move forward on the world stage as a 21st century model for democracy and human rights unless the rights of its most vulnerable citizens and their parents are protected.
