No life without his kids

Changes to Divorce Act seem to be superficial
Saturday, December 14, 2002, Editorial, Owen Sound Sun Times

Kids come first
Saturday, December 14, 2002, Donna Zandee, Calgary Herald
If kids came first, there would be no divorce. Under these modifications to the Divorce Act, kids come next to last.
Loaded language cut from divorce act
Tuesday, December 10, 2002, Janice Tibbetts, Calgary Herald
No loading cut -- and the presumption of sole maternal custody is well entrenched under the modifications. The Minister of Justice, Martin Cauchon, and his bureaucratic handlers must think that the world is as stupid as they are power-hungry. Look at what that did!
$63 million to be spent on better family services under altered Divorce Act
Tuesday, December 10, 2002, Sandra Cordon, Calgary Herald
The money does not go to services -- it goes to judges and reinforcement of the adversarial system.
New divorce law seeks to resolve child custody disputes
Tuesday, December 10, 2002, CBC News
There is no resolution there. The only thing is these changes is the federal Department of Justice's resolve to make things worse for children and parents. Josef Stalin would have been proud of his disciples there.
Children focus of Divorce Act revisions
Tuesday, December 10, 2002, Janice Tibbetts, canada.com
Children the focus, but never talked to them and never looked at all the studies on children. This Minister, and his bureaucrats could not possibly believe this junk.
New divorce law expected to focus on custody
Tuesday, December 10, 2002, ctv.ca

Ottawa to counsel parting parents
Tuesday, December 10, 2002, Janice Tibbetts, National Post

Putting children first
Saturday, December 7, 2002, Trish Crawford, Toronto Star
Hardly, putting children first would be banning divorce except in very unusual circumstances since ALL children are adversely impacted. This is simply one of those double-think lies from the federal Minister of Justice, Martin Cauchon.
Why fight it?
Thursday, December 5, 2002, Calgary Herald
"Children of divorce have a right to access to both parents. It's not too late for Justice Minister Martin Cauchon to stand up to self-interested lobbyists who would have it otherwise." A great editorial about a dismal Minister of Justice, Department of Justice and Chretien legacy.
New divorce legislation coming Tuesday
Thursday, December 5, 2002, Allison Dunfield, The Globe and Mail
It is coming ... again, political advantage at the expense of children in the name of children as touted by nameless hypocrits.
Race may play role in child custody cases
Monday, December 2, 2002, Janice Tibbetts, National Post
Canada has been quite clear -- race and violence only count as criteria in finding an excuse for sole maternal custody. The children's best interests are NEVER considered.

Divorce damages children. The adversial system creates a generations of psychologically damaged and suicidal children. Ask your judge how many they have killed today.

Sex and social suicide
Saturday, December 14, 2002, Melanie Phillips, Daily Mail
This one surprises me. The birth rate in Europe and in Canada is already so low and has been so low for the 30 years of insanity that the suicide is committed and the society is in its death-throes. The reason that massive immigration and massive numbers of foreign workers are needed is that we no longer have children, and that too many of those those children we do have are too damaged to handle the complexities of keeping the country working. This is one society that is already dead.

The US recognises the peril of absent fathers. Why can't we?
Monday, December 9, 2002, Betting Arndt, The Age

Court denies unmarried couples property rights
Thursday, December 19, 2002, Sue Bailey, Toronto Star
Guys, this is still no reason to let her move in to your place. Just because she decides that she is saving on the rent, it really means she was trying to set you up -- and don't think that this will not continue to do so.
Common law not equal to marriage
Friday, December 20, 2002, Janice Tibbetts, National Post
Common law does not equal married
Thursday, December 19, 2002, Darren Yourk, The Globe and Mail
Jilted common-law partners can't count on 50-50 split of assets: high court
Thursday, December 19, 2002, Sue Bailey, canada.com
This is one of those nasty, nasty and sneaky decisions from the dictators at the Supreme Court. As they dismantle marriage, making it a sentence for life on only one of the partners (based on gender), they have also that they are the gods who will define marriage that no man will set asunder. This really is the next move in deciding that they will be the gods of common law as well -- which they will have to handle differently so that they can mess around with homosexual relations and rich heterosexual women (after all, they have repeatedly refused to give anything to a man). The gender-feminists are mad because it seems to close their normal licence to steal, but it is difficult to tell the staging from the stupidity.

Judicial activism has gone too far, court says
Thursday, December 12, 2002, Kirk Makin, The Globe and Mail

Want to be a justice of the peace? Just apply
Monday, December 30, 2002, Kirk Makin, The Globe and Mail
Someone thinks that the people who throw you in jail, remove your family from you, and sieze your assets need qualifications. Of course, seeing those activist judges, one wonders what those qualifications might be.

Scrutinize top court nominees: judge
Monday, December 30, 2002, Cristin Schmitz, The Ottawa Citizen

Death of five-year-old 'suspicious'
Wednesday, December 25, 2002, BBC News
Another Christmas present from the Family courts, this time in Scotland. Alison Gorrie beats five-year-old Brendan Gorrie to death with a golf club and then makes a half-hearted "fall" out the window. Of course, Dad was estranged and violent mother gets the child. No suicide, just the murder, per the normal mode.

Using emotion as ammunition
Monday, December 30, 2002, Alessandra Eakin, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"I suspect men have known this for a long time and, in their better interest, have kept quiet about it. However, in the face of overwhelming evidence, as a woman, I must conclude that 'sistas' all are indeed sniveling, simpering imps."

Friday, December 27, 2002, The Guardian

Monday, December 23, 2002, Elaine Carey, Toronto Star

Thursday, December 26, 2002, Deborah Kadin, Chicago Daily Herald

Monday, December 23, 2002, Kate Leckie, The Frederick News-Post

Men seek 'paternity fraud' law
Monday, December 23, 2002, Kathy Boccella, The Philadelphia Inquirer

Lee deputy wounds woman after rampage in North Fort Myers
Monday, September 3, 2002, Andi Atwater, News Press
Leslie Ann Wallace blows away her 6 year old son's chest, hunts down and 16 year old son at his church and wounds him (his Bible kept him from being mortally wounded), and then goes looking to shoot her 19 year old son. She phones 911 and brags about killing the poor little boy. The sons lived with their dad — read, it sometimes seems as if the reporters think this justifies something.

The land of lost children
Saturday, December 21, 2002, Margaret Philp, The Globe and Mail
The terrible things that Canada has done to its natives -- sounds a lot like what their plan is for heterosexual men too.

Schools can't ban gay books, court rules
Saturday, December 21, 2002,
Supreme Court rules for enforced propangisation and the forcing of a way of life on Canadians and their children that has been repeated rejected. This is simply one of many illustrations of just what these perverse judges have become. Respect for these jerks?

Two good decisions
Saturday, December 21, 2002, Editorial, National Post
Applauding the welfare decision below and the common-law decision above. The first was forced, the second is just a disaster-to-come. This is McLachlin's "pro-active" destruction.

Law movement avoids need for bitter divorces
Friday, December 27, 2002, Letter to the Editor from James C. MacDonald, Toronto Star
Be aware. Collabarative Law is a joke in Ontario. It is a farce used by lawyers to generate higher incomes out of your pocket. Whether it is you being told that your case does not qualify and you need some heavy duty adversarial stuff, or you get hours and hours of worthless conferences (neatly and efficiently timed for maximum lawyer fees), just know that you lose.
A made-to-measure lawyer . . .
Saturday, December 21, 2002, Tracey Tyler, Toronto Star
An unreasonably imbalanced look at changes to the Divorce Act and some blatant publicity for some "family law lawyers" -- most of whom actually do "practise." Perhaps Mr. Epstein will give a more reasonable situation: Working woman married to a middle class guy. She is bored with the marriage, tired of being responsible for anything and decides she wants to cash in. Three children -- the middle child is definitely his, the youngest definitely not, the older one is a question because she was pursuing 4 different guys at the same time when she decided she wanted to get married. She is not that interested in the kids, but she wants the money. Since she started using weapons to hit him, he has been avoiding her, so she figures that if he had half a brain he would be seeing someone else. She has been planning this, and saving her salary and skimming his for about 5 years now to get this started, but wants the lawyer to make sure he has to pay for everything (just like the lawyer says).

Welfare is not a right, judges say
Friday, December 20, 2002, Janice Tibbetts, National Post
The panel of the highest paid dummies figured out how bankrupt countries work it seems. To think that someone figures that a welfare state is anything except a prison camp -- this court was not about to check in.

Lawyers warned to button their lips in court
Friday, December 20, 2002, Mario Toneguzzi, Calgary Herald
Lawyers whispers make the tape. Honesty has no place in a court of law.

The man in black who sees red
Friday, December 20, 2002, Peter Ellingsen, The Age
Militant Ozzie fathers don't get the message across, but they do show the frustration of an unresponsive and unjust system. Perhaps the world's next Nelson Mandela will be in this group.

Judge allows mother of triplets to sell book about abduction
Thursday, December 19, 2002, The Globe and Mail
Kidnapping mother to profit? Of course, now that has returned, kidnapped the children, been returned again, and the jury and judge deciding that kidnapping children is OK for mothers, she should be able to write a book. Now she believes in shared parenting apparently.

Female teacher says sex with boy, 10, was consensual
Sunday, December 15, 2002, Sarah Catherall, New Zealand Independent Newspapers
Consensual? at 10? only in the world of the feminist double think. Maybe Faryn Ripine Matthews was senile at 34!

Parents work hard to keep the peace
Sunday, December 15, 2002, Kim Heinrich Gray, Calgary Herald
Some parents, likely those who have seen first hand the damage of the lawyers, judges and other bureaucrats avoid the carrots and look after their children. While this is great, it should be noted that the federal government is attempting to put a stop to this by forcing every action into court.

Former Toronto policeman rescued from locked room
Monday, December 9, 2002, Peter Cheney, The Globe and Mail
Another man abused and locked-up by his spouse. Statistics show that the rate of abuse of elderly men by their oppposite-sex spouses is much, much higher than the other way around -- this should be no surprise, but is why there is such an attempt to re-write the statistics.

Sex-change delisting `prejudiced'
Saturday, December 7, 2002, Karen Palmer, Toronto Star

Suicide still the top killer
Thursday, December 5, 2002, Brodie Fenlon, Toronto Sun

Monday, December 2, 2002, canada.com
