Canadian Cancer Spreads to Ukraine

July 20, 2010 permalink

Ukrainian officials love the positive Canadian experience with children's aid and want to implement the Canadian system there.



Hello dear Robert!

My name is Zhanna, writing you from Ukraine (neighbor of Russia). I am a member of whole-ukraininan society of parents (my site, in Russian: Recently our government started a mass PR program of adoption of juvenile justice system in our country. As a result - our Children's Aid started to take away children from normal families. Officials tell us a lot about a positive Canadian experience in this area and they want to implement Canadian system here. I saw your site and would like to translate (to Russian) and publish some materials to let our people know another side of Canadian Children's Aid.

Would you let me to translate and publish on my site (and probably on some other sites of our parents communities) your materials? If you allow, we will specify links to your site with each translated post.

Thank you very much in advance,

I was both amused and alarmed that Ukraine is contemplating adopting the Canadian system of children's aid. You are welcome to translate and post anything you find on my website.
