“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” - Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

“‘Tis strange – but true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction.” - British poet Lord Byron (George Gordon Byron)

A lot of evidence concerning abuse and corruption connected with Children's Aid/Children Services/CPS and the various related government departments and non-government organizations (NGOs) has surfaced in both the U.S. and Canada - yet, over the years, nothing changed.

This indicated that there was a larger more powerful connection at play. It did not take long to find this bigger connection. However, in the early years, there were few people who would accept the reality of these larger global connections.

Most people do not want to believe that corruption and abuse against innocent families and children exists in Canada and the U.S.. They need to feel a sense of security in the society they live in, and that need is so great that most people will prefer to believe a lie rather than face the truth. They want to believe that such things only exist in third world countries !

Understanding that even the basics of the wickedness in Nova Scotia, Canada was hard for most people to accept, we originally limited the information we posted to local concerns. This way, at least, we hoped that we could begin educating Nova Scotians about the reality of abuse and corruption connected with Children's Aid/Children Services/CPS.

However, it broke our hearts to find testimonies from parent groups throughout North America and beyond who had worked years to inform the public and had attemped to change the system, as we had, with no success. They were frustrated and did not understand why, despite all the evidence that had come forward, nothing was done, nothing changed.

We felt they were owed an explanation, so, hopefully, now is the time for people to hear and accept the "Bigger Global Picture".

The powerful connections that are responsible for abusing our innocent families and children go to the highest levels that hides behind secrecy and secret organizations.
Countless people will hate the New World Order and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people." ~ H. G. Wells (1939)

Finally alternate media, first hand testimonies from people coming out of these evil organizations, and countless politicians began now declaring openly the plan for a New World Order and a one world government. Because of this, it is hoped that people will accept the evidence we are now posting concerning this evil global connection. Please view topics under "Bigger Picture" , "Agenda 21" , "Democracy Destroyed" etc .

Because of the push to form a One World Government, we are all connected in our struggle. What is being done elsewhere is being, or will be, done to us because it is the same global power which is working towards the destruction of our families and our children worldwide - And the corruption in Children's Aid/Children Services/CPS is is just one of the instruments they use to achieve this goal.

Thus far there are at least 8 powers that are struggling for this one world domination: the Illuminati, Communism, the Vatican, the Masons, the Islam extremists (understand these Islam extremists are killing fellow Islamic people who do not agree with their extreme views) and India, China, and Russia. They all use and manipulate each other but, ultimately, each wants ultimate control.

In the Christian Bible, it is prophesied that an evil Anti-Christ will set up a one World government utilizing a one world religion where all the people of the world will eventually be forced to worship him alone. It is difficult, at this time, to determine, for certain, if this Anti-Christ raises up from any of the 8 powers mentioned above or elsewhere. Please link here if you are interested in learning more about the Anti- Christ.

Over the years, we have seen the voice of the people shut down: Newspapers, and Radio stations, that were willing to write and broadcast critical articles and interviews against Children Services/CPS and government folded. And radio/media personalities, who allowed people to speak out against Children Services/CPS and the government, lost their jobs or were heavily curtailed.

Both the US and Canada have passed laws to remove our right and freedoms, including free speech: the Patriot Act, numerous Executive Orders nullifying the US Constitution. The latest US government grab for power is the NSAA that would allow the US government to put any US citizen in indefinate detention without charges or a trial.

Oath Keepers (military police and sheriffs loyal to the US Constitution - ready to defend the people against enemies "foreign or domestic" ) and some congress people, senators and US States have also taken a stand. Even concerned individuals have gone to the courts to fight the NSAA.

We believe the internet, as we know it, soon will be limited. Eventually internet use will be removed completely from the hands of the people. The time is short. The time to get this information out is now. No one is immune from the abuse of Children Services /New World Order/Agenda 21 etc. The victims can be your family, your children, your grandchildren, your nieces and nephews etc.

You cannot move away from this threat - It is global !You must not put your head in the sand! - There is a global plan to destroy the family unit and physical, sexual and mental abuse is an essential part of Trauma-Based Mind Control, one of the many mind control programs used by this global system to destroy our children. They are also using the more insidious Neuro Linquistic Programing (NLP) to alter people's value system. But the current and planned use of Electronic, Psychotronic Mind Control which can be used on people in mass is the most alarming of all ! Please view the many topics on this site under the title MIND CONTROL.

They want our children to rebel against us. They want the new generation to view the "state" as their parent.

But worse than all this, they want to kill off most of the people on this planet, and all under the guise of environmentally saving the planet. We have been declared the enemy - They openly state that we, and our children must be sacrificed for the greater good.

If this sounds extreme to you then it is because you have not been paying attention to the world events that are unfolding before your very eyes. You have been lulled into ignorance and apathy. The expansion of sports and sports arenas, the addiction to various social networks, the focus on celebraties on so called "news" shows. This has all been designed to placate the masses and to get your focus off politics and the changes that are being done to you and your family. Your attention has also been diverted to worrying about the economy and an "enemy" that shifts and changes to suit the political manipulating whims of a small powerful elite. - and this spell has been caste over you "by design". The people in the highest realm of this global power call us "stupid sheep", and we are being lead to the slaughter !

You must wake up NOW! Time is VERY short ! I suggest you start with the several topics listed under "Agenda 21" :

1. AGENDA 21/ Sustainable Development Explained: North America - US - Canada - Nova Scotia (It is recommended that you read this 1st)

2. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Population Cut/ Cull (kill) Part 1
(They want to kill us, You should question, Vaccines, Fluoride, Water, GMOs, Chemtrails, Morgellons - GMO/Chemtrail desease.

3. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Population Cut/ Cull (kill) Part 2
(Morgellons, Meat, Aspartame, No home gardens, Planned vitamin, mineral and organic food ban, Smart meters, Cancer cures, Pollution free energy and cars, Abortion, After birth abortion, Denying medical care, Killing our own troops, Gun control)

4. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Pushback - People are waking up Part 1
(States, Governors, Sheriffs, )

5. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Pushback - People are waking up Part 2
(Militia, Military, Whistleblowers)

6. Agenda 21/Sustainable Development: The Bigger picture

7. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Political Takeover

8. AGENDA 21/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Canada - New World Order (NWO)

If we do not WAKE UP, fight back, and win then you need to seriously prepare yourself and your family for, incarceration without trial, torture, persecution, and even death.

Maybe some of these Christians and Messianic Jews know something that is very important for these times and perhaps we should pay attention to what their holy books have to say about the "End Times" "End of the Age" etc. (the 3 1/2 to 7 years just before the return of Yeshua Ha Mashiach/ Jesus the Messiah or Anointed One.

Fall of the Republic:
The Bigger Picture - Get Yourselves Educated!
The Same for Canada

Order this DVD at http://infowars-shop.stores.yahoo.net/faofreprofba.html

Fall Of The Republic documents how an offshore corporate cartel is bankrupting the US economy by design. Leaders are now declaring that world government has arrived and that the dollar will be replaced by a new global currency.

President Obama has brazenly violated Article 1 Section 9 of the US Constitution by seating himself at the head of United Nations' Security Council, thus becoming the first US president to chair the world body.

A scientific dictatorship is in its final stages of completion, and laws protecting basic human rights are being abolished worldwide; an iron curtain of high-tech tyranny is now descending over the planet.

A worldwide regime controlled by an unelected corporate elite is implementing a planetary carbon tax system that will dominate all human activity and establish a system of neo-feudal slavery.

The image makers have carefully packaged Obama as the world's savior; he is the Trojan Horse manufactured to pacify the people just long enough for the globalists to complete their master plan.

This film reveals the architecture of the New World Order and what the power elite have in store for humanity. More importantly it communicates how We The People can retake control of our government, turn the criminal tide and bring the tyrants to justice.

The Obama Deception is a hard-hitting film that completely destroys the myth that Barack Obama is working for the best interests of the American people.

The Obama phenomenon is a hoax carefully crafted by the captains of the New World Order. He is being pushed as savior in an attempt to con the American people into accepting global slavery.

We have reached a critical juncture in the New World Order's plans. It's not about Left or Right: it's about a One World Government. The international banks plan to loot the people of the United States and turn them into slaves on a Global Plantation.

Covered in this film: who Obama works for, what lies he has told, and his real agenda. If you want to know the facts and cut through all the hype, this is the film for you.

Watch the Obama Deception and learn how:

- Obama is continuing the process of transforming America into something that resembles Nazi Germany, with forced National Service, domestic civilian spies, warrantless wiretaps, the destruction of the Second Amendment, FEMA camps and Martial Law.

- Obama's handlers are openly announcing the creation of a new Bank of the World that will dominate every nation on earth through carbon taxes and military force.

- International bankers purposefully engineered the worldwide financial meltdown to bankrupt the nations of the planet and bring in World Government.

- Obama plans to loot the middle class, destroy pensions and federalize the states so that the population is completely dependent on the Central Government.

- The Elite are using Obama to pacify the public so they can usher in the North American Union by stealth, launch a new Cold War and continue the occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Then I heard another voice from heaven say: "Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Mix her a double portion from her own cup. Give her as much torture and grief as the glory and luxury she gave herself. In her heart she boasts, 'I sit as queen; I am not a widow, and I will never mourn.' Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her: death, mourning and famine. She will be consumed by fire, for mighty is the Lord God who judges her. - Revelation 18: 4-8

Child Welfare Agency Echoes Nazi Germany - CBNcom

Child Welfare Agency Echoes Nazi Germany?
Based on transcript
http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2010/March/Child-Welfare-Agency-Echoes-Nazi-Germany/
Dale Hurd - CBN News Sr. Reporter

BERLIN - It sounds like Nazi Germany: families afraid of a loud knock on their door in the early morning, police bursting in, and taking away their children.

But it's not Nazi Germany. It's today's Germany.

In Berlin, when authorities came for 7-year-old Dan Schulz, his family secretly videotaped the abduction. On the tape, family members are crying and the boy can be heard screaming, "Mom I don't want to go!"

A German official responds, "Your mother can't help you here."

The boy was taken by Germany's notorious child welfare agency, the Jugendamt. The official reason young Dan was taken was that he wasn't in school, even though he had been homeschooled and then began private school.

Wrecking Normal Families

The Jugendamt, which dominates Germany's controversial family court system, takes children when it wants, from perfectly normal families. The Jugendamt's well-documented treatment of families, especially homeschoolers, has now become an international issue.

In January, the Romeikes, a German homeschool family, were granted asylum in the U.S. after an immigration judge ruled that Germany and the Jugendamt had violated their human rights. Mike Donnelly, with the Home School Legal Defense Association, was one of the attorneys for the Romeikes.

"The judge said that this policy was repellent to everything that we as Americans believe," Donnelly said. "He felt that these were basic human rights. These were the kinds of rights that no country had a right to deny their people. "

The Jugendamt undoubtedly does some good, somewhere, but it also has gained an international reputation as a ruthless organization that takes children from good families and wrecks homes.

"My experience with the Jugendamt has been terrible," Dan's mother Heidi Schulz said. "They destroy families; they torture people, and make money out of it."

She is still haunted by the morning her son was taken from her.

"He was screaming so much and he held me tight, and I couldn't do anything. Nothing," she recalled.

After he was taken, Heidi was only allowed sporadic visits and phone calls.

"And when I would call him, he would scream and say, 'Mama, come and get me!' And I would say, 'I don't know where you are,'" she said.

Child-Trafficking Network?

After three years of fighting and praying for her son, a judge finally ordered Dan to be returned home. Heidi said her son had been kept at an orphanage where he was beaten up by other children, poorly fed, poorly clothed and not educated for the first year and half.

"It was terrible. At first I thought I was just going to the doctor but it was nothing like that," Dan recalled. "They told me wasn't doing well and they told me that my mother was sick."

Opponents and victims of the Jugendamt say the system amounts to a government child-trafficking network, in which about 80 kids per day are seized from parents and funneled to children's homes and psychiatric care, with the overflow going to foster homes. They claim the system needs to continually take in more children to keep functioning.

"There is a system of persons, of social workers, of teachers, psychotherapists, who live on children being taken out of the family," German psychologist Carola Storm-Knirsch said. "We call it industry."

Storm-Knirsch has worked for the Jugendamt on several cases. But she broke with the Jugendamt over the Schulz case, which she called "totally wrong."

"There are homes with empty beds. And they need children," she explained. "And they call the Jugendamt and say, 'Hello, do you have a child for us?'"

Documents shown to CBN News indicate little Dan brought in about $8,000 a month for the state home where he was kept. While CBN News was there, Heidi got a bill in the mail from the Jugendamt for what was done to her family.

"One thousand-six hundred euros," she said, adding sarcastically, "They take your child and then they take your money."

No Reform Needed?

The local Jugendamt office is right across the street from the Schulz's, so we asked for an interview. They said they couldn't talk about the case, but said that they "acted in a humane and correct way, and legally."

The German embassy in Washington told us flatly that the Jugendamt does not need to be reformed. And it answered "yes," when we asked, "Does Germany adhere to the European Convention on Human rights in respect to the rights of parents?"

But a German legal expert insists that the German Supreme Court ruled in 2004 that the European Convention on Human Rights is not binding on Germany.

In her fight for her son, Heidi tried to get the ear of German politicians, such as the former head of the European Parliament. But a videotape shows that when another Jugendamt victim suggested the Jugendamt should be considered a criminal organization, the former head of Germany's Green Party, Reinhard Bütikofer, exploded.

"Stop it with this stupid brazen radical cr---! It's stupid brazen radical cr--! I don't want to be insulted by such cr--," he screamed.

Heidi Schulz has already raised two exceptional daughters. Winonah has studied in Japan, and Tashina in America. But the Jugendamt suspects Heidi has psychological problems, and they have begun a new process which could lead to her son Dan being taken away again.

Dan told us there's nothing wrong with his mom.

"The children's home is sick, not my mother," he said.

Echoes of Nazi Germany

The psychologist Storm-Knirsch agrees, saying the Schulz family is healthy, but she thinks some members of Germany's Jugendamt and family court system could use therapy.

"These people are sick!" she said.

Heidi, who was raised in communist East Germany, said that in some ways, communism felt safer than the new Germany.

"They (the Jugendamt) are so mighty," she said. "They have all power and you are nobody."

The German establishment doesn't like to be reminded that the Jugendamt was started by Adolf Hitler. Storm-Knirsch adds that "Adolf Hitler really did his work well."

HSLDA Attorney Mike Donnelly told CBN News that more German families are seeking political asylum in the United States.

Meanwhile, in Berlin, Heidi admitted to us that she feels defenseless, as she waits for the Jugendamt to decide whether she will keep her son.

CANADA Child "Protection"



B.C. children spent years in limbo after shaken baby accusation: Court proceedings dragged on for 4 years
By Kathy Tomlinson CBC News
Last Updated: Jan 3, 2012 10:09 AM ET

Paul and Zabeth Bayne and kids Kent, Baden and Bethany in 2009

A couple whose children were removed from their home and eventually returned say the B.C. government caused needless suffering by keeping the family apart for almost four years.

“It’s going to take a lot of healing,” said Zabeth Bayne, mother of the four children. "There’s a lot of pain that gradually we have to deal with, and as a family."

“Children grow up very quickly, and they can’t wait,” said Paul Bayne, the father. “For four years, I couldn’t be a proper dad or provider or a protector. Now I can.”

The Baynes were accused in 2007 of shaking their six-week-old daughter. They’d brought her to hospital with inexplicable injuries, so the B.C. Ministry of Children and Family Development took her away.

No criminal charges were laid. The couple always insisted their daughter's injuries, which included internal bleeding, were not caused by shaking, and several medical experts agreed.

In 2008, after the parents protested publicly about the baby’s removal, the government seized their two boys, then about four and three years old, for involving them in the publicity. The couple later had a fourth child, a son, who was taken away at birth.

Supervised visits only

Over the years, the children were shuffled among foster homes and had strictly supervised visits with their parents.

Our oldest boy kept saying, ‘I feel like I am the only one who visits his mommy and daddy,’” Zabeth said. “He didn’t understand what was going on, why he had to be separated from us for so long, and why he couldn’t see us. And we couldn't [weren't allowed to] tell him anything.”

Chief Judge Thomas Crabtree
After a lengthy court hearing — with repeated delays and adjournments — Chief Judge Thomas Crabtree of the B.C. provincial court ruled the baby was not shaken, calling her injuries “unexplained.” Crabtree's ruling came four months after he finished hearing the evidence.

A psychological assessment was then done on the Baynes, which was favourable, and in August 2011, the government returned the children, with no explanation or justification for why it took so long.

Bayne family at a reunification party. Baby Josiah was returned on August 2 and the other three children came home on August 25, 2011.

During their first weeks back home, the children clung to the parents.

“They were sleeping in our room,” Zabeth said. “They could not be apart from us or there were tears."

Although the shaken baby diagnosis was wrong, it took an unnecessarily long time to get it overturned and to bring the children home, she said.

"It’s not acceptable, and you see the damage that’s done, waiting for process," Zabeth said.

Paul compares the slow pace of the court case to driving slow motion during an emergency.

“It feels like your children are at home and someone’s trying to break into the house and you get a phone call — to get home as quick as you can. And your car is stuck in first gear. You’re driving five miles an hour trying to get home. It’s like, ‘Come on. Let’s go. Let’s go!’ It’s frustrating sitting in court saying ‘Let’s get going.’”

Zabeth says she and her husband were reluctant to complain in court, because the judge held so much power over their family.

“Any frustration over delays can be twisted, [This is the specialty of Children Services - twisting everything so they look good and the parents look bad ! ]  and viewed that ‘Oh, there’s a temper there.’"

One-year limit exceeded

B.C. law specifies young children should not be kept in temporary care for more than a year. Although the Baynes say their lawyer raised this restriction several times, it was never addressed.

[Up front this law might sound good,  BUT often the the government will use this law to take the children into PERMANENT care without due process or evidence or any good reason.  In Nova Scotia, children can be taken away when there is no evidence of neglect or abuse - All the government has to do is state that they believe there might be neglect or abuse in the future ! - Wake up people and get active BEFORE anyone in your family is victimized] 

“There’s no one held accountable for the timing,” Zabeth said. “There’s no questions asked.”

Ministry statistics show, on average, children are being kept in temporary care three months longer than they were five years ago. In 2006-07, the average temporary care order was 13 months. In 2010-11, that increased to 16 months.

A parents advocacy group called People Assisting Parents Association, or PAPA, (http://www.pa-pa.ca/)%20says  says too many cases drag on beyond the one-year limit, for no good reason.

The group cites another case, that of an accountant and father of four from Victoria, whose one-year-old son was removed from the home in 2007. PAPA said the child has been in temporary foster care ever since, [that's 4-5 years!] while the court case is repeatedly delayed. A custody hearing date is now set for June 2012.

“The modus operandi of the ministry is to set a court date for a custody order and seek a long trial length (usually from five to 10 days), citing calling many witnesses and evidence,” said spokesperson Stephen Luk. “In most courthouses, the date for a 10-day trial is generally 10 months to 15 months later.” [wait time]

Carol Ross of the B.C. Association of Social Workers confirms that temporary care orders often extend beyond one year, partly because the court system is notoriously slow. [trying to blame the court]

Limits 'not enforced'

"Time limits are not enforced,” Ross said. “As long as the (court) case is initiated within 45 days, it can drag on and on. It’s frustratingly slow for parents.

“What I see over and over is they don’t get the support they need … there is very little access to legal advocacy.”

She says social workers who are bound by process also feel the frustration.

It ultimately hurts the child … and it is heartbreaking," she added. "Within three months, I would think you can figure out what is going on."

Minister of Children and Family Development Mary McNeil

Mary McNeil, the minister for Child and Family Development, refused to comment on the Bayne case, but she agreed court delays are a problem.

“I totally understand the frustration — I understand the frustrations for me — to make sure that families are returned together,” McNeil said.

“Each case is so different, and we’re not alone in making these decisions. And the decision to apprehend a child is taken very, very seriously.”

Minister wants mediation

She says she wants to see more cases settled through mediation.

“I’m really pushing the ministry … to make sure that we have the system in place and alternatives in place so families don’t have to go the court route. So that families can try to resolve what they need to through mediation, through family dispute mechanisms and through family group counselling.”

Paul and Zabeth Bayne say they couldn't have agreed to mediation, however. In that scenario, they would have had to admit they harmed their baby. [ That is stupid! Mediation should not hing on the parents having to admit guilt. ]

“We fought back,” Paul said. “When someone [in the ministry] makes a mistake, it’s pretty hard to go back, especially with what happened to our family and all the money being spent.

[ What is not being understood here is that the ministry taking children, is a money-making venture: Children Services are getting money for taking these children to begin with and all the other "stakeholders ( the courts, lawyers, psychiatrists etc. are making a pile of money too and the longer the child is in the system, the more money everybody makes]

“They’re not used to resistance,” Zabeth said. “It went south and people dug their heels.”

The couple say they get emails every day from parents asking for help. They said they do not plan to sue the ministry for what happened. They'd rather try to help others in similar situations.

“Your heart breaks over some of the stories that you hear,” Zabeth said. “Something needs to change.”

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

http://www.ombudsman.on.ca/Search.aspx?searchtext=between a rock and a hard place
May 26, 2005

Today Ontario Ombudsman André Marin released his report Between a Rock and a Hard Place (pdf) to the public.

André Marin The following quote from the report shows that the senior Ministry officials are clueless, and suggests a weak ministry manipulated by the career bureaucracy:

103 How prevalent is this phenomenon? It is impossible to say precisely. Senior Ministry officials advised my Office that the Ministry is unaware of how many children with severe disabilities are currently in the protection of Children's Aid Societies either under Temporary Care Agreements or society or Crown wardship orders because their parents are unable to provide necessary residential care. The Ministry advised that it has never investigated the issue of whether there are Children's Aid Society files in which protection concerns have been "manufactured" so that children with severe disabilities could obtain residential placement.

In response to scandal, Mrs Bountrogianni said:

The report was written in February, it was given to me in March, and I did indeed immediately act. Those 30 families were given the services they needed, following the process of the communities solving the problems and finding the resources for those children, and they didn't have to go to the courts to give up custody of their children.

According to Mr Marin, Mrs Bountrogianni lied, or in his more diplomatic words, failed to appreciate that the problem exists. The services mentioned were in fact not delivered.

The Ombudsman deals with families of severely disabled children. He estimates there are 150 to 200 cases of parents humiliated by being compelled to sign documents officially abandoning their children. Mother Tina Grignard reports:

That was the most disgusting lowest point of my entire life. I so regret going. ... When I walked in the corridor, there were about 30 people there and I wanted to die. I work for the Ministry, the rent geared to income office. I recognized many of our tenants in that court. It was kind of awkward. This is a small community ... My CAS worker ... walks in the door and I clearly heard three different people say "[the CAS worker]" is here and [she] comes, walks right over to me and sits beside me and starts talking. So now its been confirmed that I'm here not for divorce court but I'm here for Children's Aid. So I just wanted to die. I was just so embarrassed.

Mrs Grignard's unease is the consequence of the true reputation of Children's Aid. Not a good experience indeed. We wonder, will Mr Marin now go on to deal with the humiliation, and horror, of thousands of parents who find that their children do not return from school, or who have their children kidnaped (protected) by armed policemen invading their home?

Mr Marin identifies the problem that handicapped children are shoehorned into the child-protection system, without grasping why child-protection bureaucrats prefer crown-wardship over in-home assistance to competent parents. Once a child is a crown-ward, the bureaucracy presents the legislature with the dilemma of providing funding, or letting children go without food and shelter. Since legislators will not take the latter choice, continued funding is assured. No such assurance exists when providing in-home assistance.

164 On a final note, I feel the need to point out that parents have expressed palpable fear of the consequences of coming forward to my office to complain. They are concerned that they will be punished by the bureaucrats that they depend on to assist them. I intend to monitor the outcome of my report and vigorously act, if there is any sign of reprisal against those who have demonstrated the courage to speak out against this manifestly unfair situation.

This is the problem Dufferin VOCA, and other CAS opponents, have faced for years. We have hundreds of stories of abuse of families in the name of child protection, yet must remain silent in nearly all cases, because of the threat of retaliation by Children's Aid. Unlike Mr Marin, we cannot protect families with the powers of government.

Mrs Bountrogianni has responded with a press release in which she promises more money, increasing the bounty on the heads of Ontario children payable whenever Children's Aid succeeds in snatching a child. She does offer to repatriate children taken into custody. Since the laws of Ontario permit publishing family names when there is no protection involved, we are waiting for the names of repatriated children.

Foster mom back on trial in death of little boy
[CTV News Edmonton 4/5/11 by Laura Tupper]

Lily is 32 years old and "was a single mother with two children of her own, who, at the time of the boy’s death, had three foster children in total.

The Crown is alleging the foster mother subjected the boy to “neglect, malnourishment and extreme forms of discipline,” and that his death resulted from an escalating pattern of abuse and animosity toward the child."

"Photos of the child unconscious in hospital show bruises on his legs, and cuts and scrapes inside his mouth and lower lip, and on his body.

The trial is slated to last one month, and then resume with a final witness called to testify in August."

The 911 Call

"In a call to 9-1-1 placed before the boy’s death on Jan. 27, 2007, the foster mother told the 9-1-1 operator she had a “little foster boy” who had been harming himself recently. She said the boy had been “getting aggressive again” when he collapsed on the floor of the bathroom.

“We can’t rouse him,” she told the operator. “His eyes are open, and he’s ... taking deep breathes occasionally, but we can’t get him to react to stimuli. I can feel he’s got a pulse, but I’m very worried.”

The woman described the boy as having “a vacant look in his eyes,” and said it doesn’t seem like the boy is having a seizure.

“I don’t know what this is, and I’m scared,” she said.

At one point, the foster mother holds the phone to the child and says the boy’s name, so the operator can hear him make a breathy, moaning sound.

The foster mother also tells the 9-1-1 operator that the boy has a bruise on his head, but she says it was caused a day earlier, when the boy was “throwing himself around on the floor” and against walls.

Evidence photos tendered in court on Monday show a clean and comfortable west Edmonton home, with toys and sports equipment and bunk beds in two bedrooms."

How Child Died is Focus of Trial
[Edmonton Journal 4/5/11 by Jana G. Pruden]

Update: The child's nanny testified at Choy's hearing. "Julia Gee broke down and cried on the witness stand in Edmonton court. She said she continues to suffer from guilt because she did nothing to protect the three-year-old boy."

"Pictures of the foster child showing bruises on his neck, back, arms and legs were submitted in court earlier this month." He died of a "severe brain injury".

Nanny ignored 'red flags' in foster care death
[CBC News 4/14/11]
7/18/11 Updates

No media story has been published since mid-April. The last witness is slated to be heard from in August 2011. We have found some of the backstory, pediatrician testimony in the media from the current trial and the pdfs of some of the trial evidence from the Alberta Courts website (Court of Queen's Bench), though. This second trial is being heard only by the judge.

Our commenter asks if Lily was a nurse. Yes, it appears that she was a nurse and nurse instructor at one point.

Backstory

Since Alberta does not identify names of child victims, this case was once dubbed the Alberta Kafka case by local trackers, which led us to the following article about her release after the first conviction.

Fix CAS Blog
[Fix CAS blog of Edmonton Sun 9/3/2009 story by Tony Blais]

"According to court documents obtained by Sun Media, the former nursing instructor was released on a $5,000 no-cash deposit recognizance with numerous conditions.

Those include that she keep the peace and be of good behaviour, attend court when required, report to her bail supervisor weekly and turn herself in for her appeal.

As well, she must live with her mother and maintain employment with her father, and she is not allowed to apply for or possess a passport or other travel documents.

She is also not allowed to be alone with children under 12, unless another adult is in the immediate presence, or have any child under her care.

She is allowed to have supervised access to her own biological children if a court determines it is in the best interest of the children.

FIVE-WEEK TRIAL
A jury acquitted the woman of second-degree murder, but found her guilty of manslaughter on Nov. 29, 2008, after three days of deliberations following a five-week trial.

Police were called to the woman's west-end home on Jan. 26, 2007, after the boy was taken to Stollery Children's Hospital suffering from serious head trauma. He died in hospital the next day as a result of a fatal brain injury, later determined to be caused by blunt force trauma.

At her trial, the foster mother tearfully testified that the victim was "throwing himself everywhere" as she was holding him in the bathroom, that she lost balance and the boy fell, hitting his head on the toilet, causing the fatal injury.

A Crown expert testified the boy's injuries came from being struck repeatedly, shaken, or a combination of the two, and said that the injuries were not accidental.

A U.S. pathologist disputed the expert's evidence and testified fatal brain injuries can be caused by short falls.

'SUB-ZERO GARAGE'

The jury heard evidence that the young foster child was locked in a "sub-zero garage" clad in only a diaper, forced to stay on the toilet for long periods and made to exercise up and down stairs after midnight.

The foster mom has filed appeals of both her manslaughter conviction and her sentence while the Crown is appealing her acquittal on second-degree murder.

The couple of months the woman served on her penitentiary sentence were at the minimum-security Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge near Maple Creek, Sask. "

Pediatrician Testimony Current Trial

" Dr. Kan Lee took the stand Tuesday and described his examination of the youngster. He told court he saw several bruises on the boy's body, including on his forehead, legs, arms and lower back.

Dr. Lee told court that Lily Choy told him the marks on the boy's body may have come from a visit to his biological father. The doctor also testified that Choy told him the boy would wake up screaming and he would have tantrums in which he would say, "Daddy hurt me, daddy pulling ears."

Dr. Lee also testified he did not see aggressive behaviour in the child.

"He was very quiet, very little emotion shown," said Dr. Lee. "At times he would raise his arms at Lily Choy. Lily Choy told me he wanted a hug, a cuddle."

Dr. Lee also told court Choy was cooperative."

Court of the Queen's Bench Rulings, Current Case

Child is referred to as A.B.

1.18-page pdf released June 13 2011 from testimony April 4 -29, 2011

Judge rules on two points: Was Lily' Choy's verbal and written statements at the hospital voluntary? Yes (page 13). But he also rules that reasonable people would assume she was detained and she was not given her rights, so page 18 says that her written and oral statement at hospital are EXCLUDED.

2.Pdf released May 26

Judge rules on interview with Social Worker, who talked to Lily Choy. Page 2, point 7: Lily Choy says that the child had been throwing tantrums after a visit with birthfamily the previous week .

Ruling to determine whether what she said is part of evidence or not. I believe this conclusion is that the social worker statement can be used as evidence.

3.Pdf released May 4

Judge rules on bus driver's observation and child A.B.'s statement to her that his huge forehead bruise was caused by “auntie”. Child's hearsay is ruled inadmissible.

4.Pdf released April 19

Judge rules on neighbors' observations of neglect. This is ruled inadmissible.
2008 and 2009 rulings in this case can be found here.

Foster mom found guilty of manslaughter in death of little boy
Updated: Wed Sep. 14 2011 18:24:43

With files from David Ewasuk
Lily Choy
A former Edmonton foster mom accused of killing a little boy in her care has been found guilty of manslaughter.

Lily Choy arrived in court Wednesday afternoon to hear the verdict in her second-degree murder case.

She is on trial for the second time after an earlier conviction for manslaughter was overturned by the Court of Appeal due to incorrect instructions from the judge when the dead-locked jury continued deliberating.

Choy was charged after the three-year-old boy died of a head injury in her home in 2007.

"This is just another example of a person who should never be around children for the rest of her life," said Det. Bill Clark, with the Edmonton Police Service.

Crown witness allegations stated she would make the boy stand in the corner for hours at a time, put him in a cold garage in winter with only a soiled diaper as clothing when his crying kept her children awake.

This second trial contained many of the same allegations, and medical experts on both sides. The Crown said Choy's form of disciplining the child was responsible for the boy's head injuries in the washroom of her home.

The defence said that the boy was aggressive and his own behaviour, actually caused his fatal injuries.

[Is this insane or what !!!! A 3 year old child who was being abused ! ! ! Any wonder he was aggressive ! ! ! This writer was told the same thing of her grandson when he was in "care" - that he was aggressive.  He was not even 2 years old.  The written documents that Children Services wrote said that he knocked the Christmas decorations off the tree, smashed them and ground them into the carpet.  Yet when he came to visit me he never treated my tree and my decorations like that. He was respectful and gentle with my tree and decorations.  They like to label a child as aggressive - this then allows them to get them labeled as "special needs" which gives the system more money - This also opens the doorway for them to start throwing unneeded meds at the children. ]

This time around, Choy's case was heard by judge alone.

Madame Justice Donna Reed brought up the other injuries that doctors found on the boy, which included multiple bruises around his body.

She said the only person she believed who had opportunity to cause those injuries was Lily Choy.

There is no minimum sentence for manslaughter. Choy will be released until sentencing begins on Oct. 17th.

Dr Charles Smith, Canada's "Expert" Witness, Destroyed Many Good Canadian Families

Dr Charles Smith, Canada's "Expert" Witness Destroyed Many Good Families

CHARLES SMITH; "ABSENCE OF ACCOUNTABILITY."Thursday, February 10, 2011
"Smith’s victims may well wonder why prosecutors from the attorney general’s office worked so diligently to hold them accountable but continue to leave Smith untouched."HAROLD LEVY
BACKGROUND: The Goudge inquiry focused largely on the flawed work of Charles Smith — formerly the province's chief pediatric pathologist and a self-styled member of the prosecution team — whose "errors" led to innocent people being branded as child murderers. (He has since been thrown out of the medical profession in Ontario);
The 1,000-page report by Justice Stephen Goudge slammed Smith, along with Ontario's former chief coroner and his deputy, for their roles in wrongful prosecutions and asked the province to consider compensation.
The provincial coroner's office found evidence of errors in 20 of 45 autopsies Smith did over a 10-year period starting in the early 1990s. Thirteen resulted in criminal charges.
William Mullins-Johnson, who was among those cases, spent 12 years in prison for the rape and murder of his four-year-old niece, whose death was later attributed to natural causes.
In another case, Smith concluded a mother had stabbed her seven-year-old girl to death when it turned out to have been a dog mauling.
The inquiry heard that Smith's failings included hanging on to crucial evidence, "losing" evidence which showed his opinion was wrong and may have assisted the accused person, mistating evidence, chronic tardiness, and the catastrophic misinterpretation of findings.
The cases, along with other heart-rending stories of wrongful prosecutions based in part on Smith's testimony, also raised a host of issues about the pathology system and the reliance of the courts on expert evidence."
- - - - - - - - - --
"There has been no shortage of accountability for the innocent victims of former doctor Charles Smith: crushing prison sentences, ostracization, financial pressure (the need to hire international experts who were not in awe of Smith), and in some cases permanent loss of other children who were put up for adoption by child welfare authorities," the Op-Ed column written for the Toronto Star by Harold Levy, Publisher of the Charles Smith Blog, published earlier today under the heading. "Absence of accountability," begins."
But there has been utterly no accountability for Smith. There have been no criminal charges or financial consequences. (As a pathologist appointed by the chief coroner to do autopsies, he likely had absolute immunity,)" the column continues."
The recent revocation of his licence to practise medicine in Ontario is largely meaningless as he has already resigned his membership in the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. The loss of his stellar reputation as a god of Canadian forensic pathology hardly counts as accountability, as that reputation was obtained by misrepresentation.
This absence of accountability would have been less troublesome if Smith had shown genuine remorse for his misdeeds.
True, his lawyer delivered an apology on Smith’s behalf at the outset of Justice Stephen Goudge’s public inquiry into many of Smith’s botched cases. But Smith has had a decade or more to personally apologize.
True, there were several cases in which Smith accepted responsibility. But these were cases in which he was cornered by the evidence called at the inquiry and there was no one else on whom he could cast the blame.
True, there was the dramatic confrontation during his cross-examination by lawyer James Lockyer, who represented William Mullins-Johnson, a Sault Ste. Marie man who spent more than 12 years in prison after being wrongfully convicted of first-degree murder. When Lockyer asked Smith if he would like to personally apologize to his client, Smith looked around the hearing room and said, “Could you point him out?” Mullins-Johnson, a tall heavy-set man, was sitting at the front of the hearing room within feet of Smith. I was there and I heard his apology. It was a phony apology.
Far from accepting responsibility, Smith used every trick in the book to avoid acknowledging that he intended to harm his victims. He admitted to “errors” and “mistakes.” He argued that his opinions reflected the state of forensic pathology at the time. He suggested that any other pathologist would have acted as he did.
As Justice Goudge bluntly ruled: “Dr. Smith was adamant that his failings were never intentional. I simply cannot accept such a sweeping attempt to escape moral responsibility.”
Smith’s victims may well wonder why prosecutors from the attorney general’s office worked so diligently to hold them accountable but continue to leave Smith untouched.
Prosecutors, who to their shame are fighting tooth and nail against court rulings that Smith’s victims are “actually innocent,” will produce a litany of excuses as to why they should not take action against Smith, such as no reasonable prospect of conviction, the passage of time and lack of availability of witnesses.
In truth, there is no political will to move against Smith because he has already exposed the government to embarrassment, legal appeals by people seeking vindication, potentially millions of dollars in compensation claims, and pressure on the already cash-strained Ontario Legal Aid Plan. (The latest appeal, brought by Tammy Marquardt, who served more than 13 years behind bars, will be heard by the Ontario Court of Appeal on Thursday.)
The government would prefer that Charles Smith quickly fade from the public eye because each new case reminds the public how trusted state officials put grieving parents and caregivers in jail — and how cruel, unfair and unjust our justice system can be.
How just is that?”
Harold Levy received a Michener Certificate of Merit in 2005 for his Toronto Star exposés on Charles Smith. He is writing a book on the Smith case and Ontario’s criminal justice system.
PUBLISHER'S NOTE: The Toronto Star, my previous employer for more than twenty incredible years, has put considerable effort into exposing the harm caused by Dr. Charles Smith and his protectors - and into pushing for reform of Ontario's forensic pediatric pathology system. The Star has a "topic" section which focuses on recent stories related to Dr. Charles Smith. It can be accessed at:http://www.blogger.com/
