About personal case advocacy

Unfortunately, we don't have the resources or mandate to do personal case advocacy. We do not give legal advice. We do talk in general terms and give information on children's rights issues.

We appreciate discussing and hearing about certain cases of interest for the purposes of gaining a better understanding of your circumstances and how government policy or laws affect you and your family.  This also assists us to provide better information on our website.

You should consult your own lawyer for legal advice. Your lawyer will review all the facts of your case and can give you legal advice and a legal opinion. See our "Disclaimer" and "Terms of Use" web pages

No Fax:

We do not receive fax transmissions. We do not own a fax machine and we do not subscribe to any incoming fax services of any kind. Any facsimile transmissions sent to our volunteers, addressed to us, for the purpose of communication with us, are automatically destroyed without reading.

This is our policy because of past communication problems that we have experienced with the large number of parents involved with the 120,000 children across Canada, at any given time, that are in care of governments. Personal case advocacy is not part of our mandate.

Emails Addresses Are Confidential

We do not have a public email address. The reason is that we use to received hundreds of emails daily from parents trying to get us to provide personal case advocacy and legal advice which we do not do.

Infidelity 'is natural'

BBC, U.K., September 25, 1998

Females 'stray to gather the best possible genes for their offspring'

Infidelity may be natural according to studies that show nine out of 10 mammals and birds that mate for life are unfaithful.

Experts found animals that fool around are only following the urges of biology.

New studies using genetic testing techniques show that even the most apparently devoted of partners often go in search of the sexual company of strangers.

Females stray to gather the best possible genes for their offspring, while males are driven to father as many and as often as possible.

"True monogamy actually is rare," said Stephen T Emlen, an expert on evolutionary behaviour at Cornell University.

An irate Brockton mother is refusing to let her 6-year-old son return to school after he was suspended for alleged sexual harassment, a term deemed preposterous for a first-grader by a leading sexual harassment expert.

My son doesn't know what sexual harassment is, said Berthena Dorinvil. He keeps saying to me, Mommy, why are they being so mean to me? What did I do wrong.   Read More ..
