Courts From Hell: Family InJustice In Canada

From the media release:

Public support is needed to save the Canadian Family. Over recent years the dysfunctional Canadian Family Justice system through biased custody orders have deprived over 1 million children of the ability to love and be loved equally by both parents. This is causing them, the Canadian Family and society at large irreparable harm.

The intent of the book "Courts From Hell: Family InJustice In Canada" is to help expose and educate the public to the unfair treatment of families after divorce by a system driven by the greed of a self serving divorce industry at the expense of Canada's children.

If the public was aware of the corruption in the Family Justice System, changes could come in a heartbeat. For the over $6 Billion a year spent by taxpayers and families in crises there is absolutely no value. It's time to Get Families Out Of Court.

I wonder if some years ago while aboriginal children were being taken away from their families, the government of the day knew it was wrong. I suspect so but they didn't have the moral fortitude to act. Does this really need to be repeated again? Can we change the future or simply wait for another PM to again apologize for the devastation to families and our society caused by inaction?

Until the election call, an all party vote was to be scheduled in the House of Commons on a Private Members Motion M-483 initiated by conservative MP Maurice Vellacott of Saskatoon to amend the divorce act to include a presumption of equal parenting after divorce.

Currently, only the Conservative party has shown any support for the family and equal parenting. Please demand your MP makes the right of the children to have both natural parents (Equal Parenting) after divorce a priority on their election agenda.

If ever an issue deserved non partisan political support, the health of the Canadian Family is that issue. Change will never come from the top down but from the bottom up. When you see abuse of power, you've got to speak.

Please encourage everyone you know to cast a vote for Families and Equal Parenting in the upcoming election.

Over the coming months, I look forward to meeting many of you at book signings in your neighbourhoods.
