The heartbreak of the unwanted child
Thursday, October 26, 2000, Pamela Bone, The Age (Melbourne)

Ewanchuk sentenced to one year in jail
Friday, October 20, 2000, Jill Mahoney, Globe and Mail
Supreme Court injustice cost a many of another year of his life. The decision in this case says that women are never responsible....but only it appears so you can send a man to jail -- and in the Supreme Court's case without hearing a single witness and ignoring that all the trials before it got there acquitted Ewanchuch.. It was only the federal government-sponsored hate groups that could afford to bring this case so far.

Election issues can ruin good policy
Saturday, October 21, 2000, John Ibbitson, Globe and Mail
Outlining the introduction of the oppressive and unconstitutional Bill 117 then, of course, ignoring it. It is bad policy. However, it does illustrate just how similar and short-sighted politicians are -- this particular policy is what took any thought of electing Lyn McLeod out of Ontarians, and they elected the Conservatives who promised not to do this, and to use common sense. It is apparent that politicians do not have any sense or any honour. These hypocrits need to go.

Role of surrogate spouse unhealthy for child
Tuesday, October 17, 2000, Sheldon Walker, Globe and Mail
We usually don't post this type of Q&As, but this one is just so relevant to so many of our members and their children, we wanted to remind us all. However, Mr. Walker's advice is more inclined to result in a false allegation and jail time for this dad that it may not be a great solution....as if there is any help for these children any more.

Supreme injustice

Tuesday, October 17, 2000, Donna Laframboise, National Post
They must be tired from that government-paid bus ride, and eating all the government-paid food, while that their pay cheque is still paid due to the miracle of government funding.

One in ten believe their lives are not worth living
Monday, October 16, 2000, Sally Pook, The Daily Telegraph
UK stats that look pretty reasonable for here too. Strangely, although it is on most of their reference links, they do not mention that a high proportion of these are involved in divorce and separation -- either as a victimised parent or a victimised child.

Police probe lawyers' dispute
Tuesday, October 3, 2000, Jake Rupert, The Ottawa Citizen

Stock millions exempt from child support
Monday, October 2, 2000, Cristin Schmitz, The Ottawa Citizen
Wait a second here. Stock options are not worth anything because they have not been (and may not be able to be) exercised. Nor are they the "recurring income" required to be used under the guideliens. Should SHE include the jackpot amount of the lotteries for which SHE owns tickets? This type of distortion is typical from those with an agenda and no idea of reality -- we should be glad a judge wised up.
