Linda Plourde and Cathereine Frei are organizing a conference titled Protecting Canadian Children to take place in Hamilton on Saturday June 19.
Protecting Canadian Children
I am writing to you at this time to invite you to the first critical conference hosted by Protecting Canadian Children, and Cathereine Frei. We want to bring the best of caring and compassionate activists together in the hopes of being able to create change for children in Canada. This conference is extremely important for all of us: families, caregivers and the people caring for their children to review the alarming conduct of Children’s Aid Societies, Family Courts, and Ontario Institutions.
The aim is to bring people together and raise much needed public awareness. We need to create a plan so that we can advance and establish what steps to take in the coming months. I would like to emphasize the importance of your participation; your contribution is most needed.
I would love to offer this conference for free but Protecting Canadian Children has no sponsor or the resources. The cost for the day includes registration fee of $25.00 and a hot lunch is: $50.00.
All activists will be offered their own display tables to promote the individual aspects of their work, which would include pamphlets, videos and books. Everyone should be well informed about their own topic and back it up with evidence. For example, when we introduce John Dunn, he will speak particularly about his area of expertise regarding what it was like to grow up in foster care under the supervision of Children’s Aid.
