Northern Ontario Baby Stolen

December 30, 2007 permalink

A Kirkland Lake couple got a Christmas surprise: an apprehension order. Social workers approached the family under false pretenses of assistance, then saved themselves 500 kilometers of driving by inducing the family to drive their baby girl to North Bay, where she was seized. The family got some bad advice on the internet, and has forfeited their opportunity to legally challenge the validity of the apprehension. The dad's dysfunctional mother seems to be the the source of the problem. The story makes clear that the biggest fear of social workers is now video cameras. Since the story uses real names, it will probably be bullied off the internet shortly. Read it while you can.

Addendum: We removed our copy of the story three years later to avoid embarrassing the family.
