Support for Devon
January 5, 2010 permalink
I am just letting people that Child Assist Services will be out protesting in front of the Family Court at 55 Main St West Hamilton, ON on January 13, 2010 in support of Devon and his family. The Hamilton Children's Aid Society is trying to get an additional 6 months involvement with the family. Stay tuned for rally times and updates!! I wonder what they are up to now?

Addendum: The time of the rally has been announced.
Update on the rally. Family Court starts for Devon and his family on January 13, 2010 at 9:30am so we will be there early by 8:30am, with our signs and Tim Hortons coffee. I have already had a few phone calls and emails of support to attend our rally on January 13, 2010.

the day after...
I took the bus downtown and grabbed my coffee at Tim Horton's DD, and went over to the family court house at 55 Main St. West Hamilton, ON. I was greeted by a few friends and the parents of Devon that were there for their son and fighting against the Hamilton Childrens Aid Society. Affidavits were served, duty counsel lawyers fighting for control over one parent remaining on the case. There was a police presence on site even though we did not carry signs just peaceful quiet assembly on the front steps of the court house.
As to be expected the court case was remanded until March 22, 2010 at 9:30am. This will give the lawyers on all sides to respond to affidavits and paperwork that was served on them. This will give us ample time as well to plan our next peaceful assembly protest on March 22, 2010 as well so stay tuned for another RALLY time and date.
This date also coincides with our 6th year anniversary when our children were forceably removed from our care on March 24, 2005. 6 years is a very long time. The children have grown and time has been lost with years passing by.
