Family Rights Protest
Young Kamloops mother fighting Ministry of Children and Families - hopes to make election issue
A young Kamloops mother is out to make children's and family rights an election issue after the Ministry took her 3 year old son. She says her son was taken without just cause.
Felicia Ciardullo agrees laws need to be tough to protect children truly at risk -- but says that wasn't the case with her son. Se wants him out of ministry care and placed with a capable family member for the time being. She adds the system is so inflexible innocents get caught up in it, and it's almost impossible to fight.
Ciardullo plans to take her fight to street corners around Kamloops, and has been speaking with political hopefuls as well.
