child abuse perpetrated by an 'outsider' points out a

I am NOT your children's aid.
I have been a victim of Jewish Family and Child Services
injustices. I was charged with assaulting my youngest son in
May, 2003 and subsequently had my two youngest children
removed from my care, without trial. It took me three years,
much heartache, money and wasted time to even begin to
overcome the tyranny that this supposedly helpful agency has
inflicted upon my family and self and to clear my good name.
I had to hire both a criminal lawyer and family law lawyers as
well as a private investigator. I eventually ended up
defending myself in court. You may be asking, "why the
private investigator?" Well, I was not even present when my
son, who was 80 percentile deaf at the time of his injury,
fell and banged his ear. The private investigator was hired
in order to interview the five witnesses. At the time of this
intrusion into my life, I was a successful landlord, artist
and entrepreneur. I had been blessed with five beautiful
children as well. The ripple effects of what Jewish Family
and Child service did to my family was devastating. I was
forced to jump through many hoops of imposed meetings,
courses, court appearances, mental health assessments not to
mention supervised visitations with my children. I had to
take parenting courses (i am a mother of 5) and anger
management courses, (who wouldn't be angry in such a
situation?). My elderly parents suffered, my three older
children suffered, my business suffered. I lost everything
material in order to fight these tyrants - my real estate, my
business, my marriage and almost my sanity. My youngest
children, then aged 6 1/2 and 5, were traumatized and still
suffer from flashbacks.

Linda Youngson has spent years researching child protection in
Nova Scotia. Among her conclusions are:
- Many rights are extinguished unless claimed at the first
hearing, three days after snatching the child. Since most
families cannot find a lawyer in that time, their rights are
lost. As for finding a lawyer, she says: "To date, we have
not found any Nova Scotian family lawyer we would recommend
- Lawyers never represent children in child protection cases,
though they are permitted, sometimes required, by law.
Social workers prevent parents and children from discussing
their case at visitation, so neither can learn that the
child's wishes were never presented in court.
- When a family proposes placing children with relatives,
those relatives are subjected to psychiatric evaluations
that are biased and unprofessional. The professional
society is ineffective in handling complaints.
- After CAS has destroyed a family, the courts can compel the
victims to pay for their own destruction.
