This page is about a young boy, Howard, taken from his father and placed with his vindictive mother with the help of Children's Aid. It contains pdf files with the family's story, and some voice clips of Howard himself, including his dramatic account of a hand test for circumcision. Canada Court Watch assembled this material from 2003 to 2005. The boy has disappeared, and his current whereabouts is unknown. Edited text from Canada Court Watch follows.
A 12-year-old boy is being detained at a Scarborough, Ontario group home under the instructions of the Toronto Jewish Family & Child Services (JF&CS). This boy has never been in trouble with the law and his only crime is wanting to live with his father. Under the orders of the JF&CS, the boy is not allowed to communicate with his father or with any trusted outsider. Offers to speak with the boy while being monitored by group home workers have been refused by the JF&CS.
Social Services Minister, Brenda Elliot, has been advised of this situation but appears to have done nothing to help to the child. Brenda Elliot's Jewish faith may be a factor in her indifference.
The child's contact with his father and all other trusted friends was cut off after the boy disclosed that workers with the JF&CS and the group home coerced him to lie about his father. The boy reported being sexually assaulted by a social worker with the JF&CS who wanted to find out whether he was circumcised. The boy is not Jewish and has reported on videotape that he does not want to be Jewish but is being forced to by his abusive Jewish mother. He has been told he will be involutarily circimcised to comply with Jewish tradition.
Prior to these files being recorded, the CAS had been actively trying to take the boy from his non-Jewish father (who had custody of the boy at the time) and to place him in the hands of his Jewish mother who had a history of violence and abuse (witnessed by third parties). The clips here have been selected to be short enough to be emailed and also to hide the name of the boy.

The last recording may be the reason for Howard's disappearance. The interviewer reported the matter to the police and the police responded by investigating the interviewer. Once a child has evidence of criminal activity by child protectors, they must hide the child to protect themselves from that evidence.
