Joint responsibilities and privileges in the ABCs -- Abortion, Birth Control and Child Care.

Are Men Victimes of Violence?
Wednesday, August 22, 2001, Sinead Desmond, The Sun (UK)
Level headed and straight talking Erin Pizzey talks about the plight, and deaths, of men in the feminist propaganda. One of the feminists who expelled Pizzey, the founder of the first English language centers of domestic violence against men, tries to double-talk and excuse the situation by denying reality. The double-think strongly shows why they had to expel people like Pizzey who know the truth.

Male victims of domestic abuse slighted

Justice obstruction 2
Monday, August 20, 2001, Editorial, National Post
IMPORTANT EDITORIAL -- READ THIS. We knew that Anne McLellan and the bureaucrats of the Department of (In)Justice have been lying like a rug on the issues of shared parenting -- despite over 95% of Canadian feeling that having both parents involved in a childs life is important (see the Compas survey elsewhere on the site). Now there is a bit more of her plans revealed -- plans laid even before the Special Joing Committee reported.. McLellan plans to extend her dicatorship by Omnibus Bill by making changes hidden under the cover of something else. (This is like her current effort to allow her to break ANY Canadian law in the Omnibus Bill that is presented as dealing with Child Pornography. Pornographic stuff indeed.) This time McLellan has decided to do so under the auspice of Child Poverty. We must be vigilant, and stop these dishonest politicians and bureaucrats. Cosmetic changes have been shown to be a disaster, as Australia has shown. Hidden changes (remember who was going to eliminate the GST) cause massive problems. This is time to get out to your MPs and stop these crooks. (NB. First article and lots of followup in the July, 2001 news files.)

What God Has Joined Together . . .
Friday, August 10, 2001, Stephen Baskerville, The Catholic World Report
An excellent summary of the insanity and excessive, abused power of the family courts. This is a "must read".

Accuser Fordham says she'll take lie test
Thursday, August 30, 2001, Jake Rupert, The Ottawa Citizen
Lying seems to be her way of life. I wonder if she would be detected given this woman.
Innocent man finally gets chance at polygraph
Wednesday, August 29, 2001, Jake Rupert, The Ottawa Citizen
Ottawa police refused a polygraph test when he was trying to prove his innocence. Now that he is innocent, they want him to take one. You think that they anticipate the law suit against them?

Man acquitted of rape faces accuser

Wrongly jailed man strikes back
Saturday, August 25, 2001, Jake Rupert, The Ottawa Citizen
Nelson files a complaint with the police about Fordham. Only with supreme pressure from the public will the police do anything.
Raped by the system
Saturday, August 25, 2001, Editorial, National Post
A right on editorial. Who is responsible for Mr. Nelson's "rape, assault, and forcible confinement"? Who is accountable?
Police probe false accuser
Saturday, August 25, 2001, Lisa Lisle, Toronto Sun
Come on. They already probed her and that is why Jamie Nelson is no longer in chains too much of his existence. The probed her in the past too. They just don't do anything because the "(in)justice" systems rewards this type of behaviour.
Man who served 3 years retroactively acquitted

Man cleared in 5 minutes after 1,047 days in prison

Man jailed for 2½ years acquitted retroactively
Friday, August 24, 2001, John Saunders, The Globe and Mail
Wrongfully convicted
Friday, August 24, 2001, Jake Rupert, The Ottawa Citizen
Dismissed, but lying accuser, Cathy Fordham, will likely never be charged and little compensation will be paid for ruining Jamie Nelson's life -- and the lives of his children. This is the "justice" in Canada for Nelson...and the many others wrongly imprisoned under discreditted "recovered memories" (they are there still courtesy of Minister Ann McLellan) and other, purposeful or not, false accusations.
'A cautionary tale' on courtroom honesty
Friday, August 24, 2001, Christie Blatchford, National Post
Blatchford filling in the details of Jamie Nelson's shameful conviction. "This was 1996: Advocates for sexual assault centres were in full flight; police forces across the country were getting the message that women did not lie about this sort of thing and that they should treat such allegations as gospel. Jamie Nelson was ripe for the plucking. He was plucked; the tie went to the girl." Allegations are still treated as gospel and many more men are wrongfully imprisoned by biased and dishonest judges.
Woman's actions 'gross abuse of power'
Tuesday, December 12, 2000, Jake Rupert, The Ottawa Citizen
A prior article about Cathy Fordham. False accusations destroy a man, and judge says there is more than enough evidence for jail. However, another abuse of power again refuses to put a woman in jail for such horrendous crimes...and does not require any compensation to the victim. The abuse of judicial power is alive and well.
A woman who strikes fear in criminals
Tuesday, August 8, 2000, Jake Rupert, The Ottawa Citizen
A prior article about Cathy Fordham.How bad does it get? All these men wrongfully accused and persecuted -- all from one disturbed social worker with a mission directly contrary to her job. It sure shows how the "social workers" don't.

This wasn't what the act was intended for
Saturday, August 25, 2001, Mindelle Jacobs, Edmonton Sun
Actually, Midelle, only Dad has to pay here. Mom is a woman and apparently women aren't capable of existing and paying at the same time according to Justice Jack Watson. Although she did manage to exist and take poor old Dad to court frequently.
Get a job
Saturday, August 25, 2001, Editorial, National Post
An outline of the dishonesty of the courts. The Post is wrong though -- they are supposed to enforce the intent of the legislation, not reinterpret the words. Judges are simply dishonest. Justice Jack Watson is simply typcial of these judges, unfortunately.
Tuition ruling forces parents to pay?
Friday, August 24, 2001, Charles Rusnell, The Edmonton Journal
Father ordered to support daughter in university
Friday, August 24, 2001, Charles Rusnell, National Post
It is not true that the Divorce Act requires that post-secondary education be paid for. The attempt to put it in was explicitly removed from parliament before the Child Support legislation was passed. Putting it in is specifically against the intent of both of the Houses of Parliament. More can be seen in a great speech by Senator Anne Cools at http://sen.parl.gc.ca/acools/cools00/06apr00.htm.

Children suffered, ex-wife says
Saturday, August 4, 2001, Robert Koopmans, Kamloops Daily News
If the kids were suffering, undoubtedly she, the judges and lawyers who make the huge bucks out of the suffering would have recognised that the best interests of the children involved shelling out their own money. Oh no, only persecute others. Got it.
Man Kept In Prison Receives Support
Friday, August 3, 2001, Robert Koopmans, Kamloops Daily News
Man Who Owes Ex Must Stay In Prison
Thursday, August 2, 2001, Robert Koopmans, Kamloops Daily News
This is a strange case. Jeffrey James Unruh is a BC father whose wife decided to leave over Unruh's expenses. She has since hauled him through the courts, convinced them to give her sole custody when there was no reason for this, and alienated his children from him. He has requested that the children stay with him and that he would take care of them. The courts, as usual, refuse and treating Mr. Unruh as they normally do -- as a wallet -- ordered him to pay her support, the large portion which is spousal support, while his wife denied access with impunity. Mr. Unruh refused to pay for a number of reasons (only one of which was religious). Mr. Unruh has spent 7 months in jail as the result of persecution by the B.C. Family Maintenance Enforcement Program. The judges in his home riding have refused to jail him any more. However, in the best interests of re-establishing debtors' prisons, the all powerful bureaucrats of the B.C. Family Maintenance Enforcement Program, in this case with the face of Veronica Beier, stole him out of his home riding to renew the persecution with a new hanging judge -- BC Supreme Court Justice Robert Hunter -- in a new riding. Justice Hunter proceeds to show what an ass the BC Supreme Court is and how easily it can be manipulated and bought by the BC bureaucrats. And we thought his job was the pursuit of justice, but now realise it is imprisoning men indefinitely as his whim. I bet Justice Hunter wonders why the dignity of his court has disappeared. The reporter is apparently writing from the notes of the FMEP, rather than dealing with the issues of the differential enforcement of court orders and the violation of basic human rights. We hope that he figures it out soon too.

Few Women Choose to Abandon Newborns at Legal Havens
Friday, August 31, 2001, Nina Bernstein, New York Times
Once again, a stupid idea fails because the people who dreamed it up don't understand what even the problem is. When will these "socio-political policy architects" understand that people need families. Stop destroying families!!

Couple fights definition of 'mother'
Thursday, August 30, 2001, Toronto Sun
Biological mother isn't the mother. Guess what, they fight. With the explicit recognition of the monetary nature of the transaction for which dads must pay and pay -- child-bearing, the problems of women arise. Is it any wonder that the feminists seek to bury the concept that for a women, it's her body and she can do what she wants -- when the fems don't like it.

The horrors of feminised education
Monday, August 27, 2001, John Waters, Irish Times
"The of media discourse on gender matters is roughly this: when something is bad for females, the fault lies with the society and/or State; when something is bad for males, it lies with the affected men or boys."

Abducted Children
Saturday, August 18, 2001, Jeff Lee and Yvonne Zacharias, Vancouver Sun
Children need both parents. The flippancy of the authorities for excluding a Dad is inexcusable. The behaviour of a parent excluding the other so totally with no just or proven reason is simply horrendous child abuse.

'I'll stay in jail forever to keep my child safe'
Friday, August 17, 2001, Adrienne Tanner, The Province
Mother shows her entitlement and lack of feelings for her child. This woman is dangerous.
Grandma hiding child
Friday, August 10, 2001, Adrienne Tanner, The Province
A judge that does what he is supposed to do when parenting time is cut off and legal responsibilities are ignored. Amazingly, the article does not mention who this courageous judge is. Now if only the cops will do their job and rescue this little boy. Vilma Alvizuris and Vilma Jeanette Jacome (who is already) certainly both should be in jail.

Criticism of Kainz is full of sour grapes
Thursday, August 23, 2001, Roberta Seed, The Ottawa Citizen
An interesting letter, supposedly defending Ms. Kainz, but clearly passing the message that selling your body and soul for money is what women are supposed to be all about. Ms. Seed, not all women behave like hookers.

Ottawa woman seeks record divorce payout
Wednesday, August 15, 2001, Glen McGregor, National Post
Gee...she doesn't seem to be too worried about paying for her stay in luxury. You think that she figures if she stayed in a nice hotel, rather then paying, she is entitled to stay there forever.That is what marriage is for the gold-diggers -- entitlement. Thank heavens there are still sane women, and men, in the world (unfortunately they are not jduges).

Outcomes vary in trials of mothers who kill kids

Sex and the Census
August -September, 2001, Cathy Young, Reason Magazine
"Post-revolution data on toxic bachelors, choice, and children"

StatsCan should stop ignoring men
Monday, August 13, 2001, Jeffrey Asher, The Ottawa Citizen
An excellent response to some ignorant comments by StatsCan. Jeffery Asher ran the only men's study group in Canada, at a college level, until being driven out by feminists who figure even one person who speaks the truth is too much. If you need nothing more, go to StatsCan's website and see the Juristat publications -- even the titles let you know where the truth is. A great AND truthful letter. Original pieces of this discussion follow.

A look at the mythology,and revisionism, in domestic violence.
StatsCan openly discusses family violence data
Tuesday, July 24, 2001, Letter to the editor by Roy Jones, The Ottawa Citizen
StatCan's Director, Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics, spins incorrect statements. Firstly, the Juristat publication makes no attempt to fairly explain that what they claim as victimisation rates is really court result cases that have come to completion. Killings and homicides are not the same. Secondly, the 1999 StatsCan survey shows, irrespective of their other distorted one-gendered intentionally biased work showed, that slightly more men than women are the victims of domestic violence (Criminal Code definition) in any year, but that slightly more women remember being victims in the last 5 years than men do. Actually, it does look like more women change non-violent incidents to violent ones once they are no longer with the guy, but that is it. Jones plays with rounding when the stats are much, much closer -- one of the lesser ways to lie with Statistics Canada.

Lawyers say judges not above media criticism
Thursday, August 16, 2001, Sandra Rubin, National Post
Even lawyers can sometimes see the obvious. Idiotic decisions need criticism -- and not always by riots and bloodshed. Personal matters? Those judges that personally failed all those around them, aren't going fail Canada too? Those judges who were autrocious parents themselves should be ordering Canadians to mess up the rest of the countries children too?

Girl in kidnap case gets wish
Tuesday, August 14, 2001, Mickey Ciokajlo, Chicago Tribune
Damaged, alienated and continuing to be alienated child returns to a life without the alienated parent. Her mother's actions have cost this young lady and her father so much pain -- and the courts continue that pain. At least, the father is interested in helping his daughter -- it appears that he, and maybe her stepfather, are the only ones who care.

Rebellion on a tight leash
Sunday, August 5, 2001, Douglas Fisher, Toronto Sun
Is the criticism of the perversity of the Canadian Department of Justice and the Injustice Minister simply because Chretien is too powerful to care what any one else thinks? "(As an aside, for over a decade any talk among regulars on the Hill which I've heard about the competence and shrewdness of advice tendered ministers within federal departments almost always ends with an unflattering focus on Justice. The explanation? Justice is too mission-driven by feminist lawyers.)"

Screams ignored as baby left to die
Thursday, June 7, 2001, Kerry Williamson, Calgary Herald
Another murder by an mother, Rei Fujii, who had different priorities that these children, who seem to have died terrible deaths from maltreatment. An echo of Rene Heikamp in Toronto of mothers who just don't care (and in this case, hid from the father who seems to have cared enough to try to help his children).

Why mothers kill their babies
Saturday, June 30, 2001, Sharon Kirkey, National Post
One of the sickest and more irrsponsible rationalisations that have come out in this debate. Mental illness in the criminals like Timothy McVeigh don't count, but anything a woman does wrong must be a mental illness and therefore she is the victim and those that die are the oppressors. You want a "command hallucination"? .... here it is!! The Post should be ashamed.

Wednesday, June 20, 2001, The Globe and Mail
Here again a murderous mother, Andrea Yates, drowns her 5 young children in the bathtub -- including a 7-year-old who fought the process tooth-and-nail. But they are dead. Watch how the newspapers turn away from the terrible end these children met at the hands of someone that supposedly loved them. Yates's depression and psychosis are then used to somehow justify this killing -- seemingly even to her husband and family -- although any such psychotic man would have been labelled a monster (no reason to look at why)1 and duely done away with. They even want to hang the unlikely lable of "post partum depression" in this murder of so many children, not just the baby, by a woman that was rational enough to fight a 7-year-old into the water and rational enough to let her husband and police know what she did, after it was done, but not before when it would have made a difference. It is amazing the number of women who comment htat they wanted to kill their children at one time or another, so it must be OK for women to kill kids. Monsters indeed.
