CAS or Die
March 27, 2009 permalink
Bolton Ontario mother Nadine Bernard has been arrested for killing her 18-month-old boy. A family friend told 680News the CAS was preparing to take the woman's three children away.
If this is indeed a preemptive killing to avoid child seizure, we can expect a news blackout on that side of the story. Watch for future articles vilifying the mother.
Canada.com names the boy as Jayden and the Toronto Sun calls him Jadon Bernard.

An 18-month-old boy was found murdered in an underground parking garage across from Square One in Mississauga Friday, Peel police said.
Nadine Bernard, the toddler's 34-year-old mother from Bolton, Ont., was arrested and will be charged with first-degree murder in court later on Friday, Peel police Const. Wayne Patterson told 680News.
Officers were called to the Mississauga Executive Centre at 1 Robert Speck Parkway just before 8 a.m., where the toddler's body was found inside a Honda CRV.
The office building is located across the street from Square One in the Hurontario Street and Burnhamthorpe Road area.
The woman's other two children have been found safe and are staying with family members.
Police are also looking at the woman's involvement with the Children's Aid Society. A family friend told 680News the CAS was preparing to take the women's three children away.
An autopsy will be performed in the next few days, but police said they will not be releasing the cause of death.
This is the region's sixth homicide of the year.
