Rights of the Child and Fathers Parental Rights in Canada

BATHURST, New Brunswick. - August 22, 2001 -

On May 5, 1999, New Brunswick Social Services entered a home and apprehended a child from the care of it's father because he had apparently refused to follow an anger management program. The views of the father were that he should not have been obligated to follow any such programs without any reasonable and probable grounds that he had abused anyone mentally, physically or psychologically.

The Court of the Queen's Bench - The child's father then represented himself in Court for the purpose of regaining custody of his child but the Courts placed the child in a foster home for a period of four month with conditions that he follow anger management. Notwithstanding that there are no laws that give jurisdiction to the Courts on imposing conditions to a custody order of a child, the Courts imposed the conditions on the custody order regardless that there was no laws that allowed it.

The Court of Appeal - January 18, 2000. The father continued to represent himself in Court because the lawyers he would seek advise from would only inform him that he was "obligated" to follow an anger management program. On January 18, 2000, the Court of Appeal set aside the custody order
and a new hearing was ordered.

Still no Custody of Child - Even though the custody order was set aside and a new hearing was ordered by the Court of Appeal, the father of the child was not granted custody of his child pending the new trial.

The New Trial at the Court of Queen's Bench - October 2, 2000. At the hearing of the new trial ordered by the Court of Appeal on October 2, 2000, a decision was made by the Court of Queen's Bench that the father have no more contact whatsoever with his child because he did not want to follow an anger management program.

Case Update - The father is currently at the Supreme Court level with his case and has made a Communication to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights for the purposes of regaining custody of his child and being awarded compensation for the emotional suffering and psychological damages to his child as well as himself which resulted from the apprehension and detention of his child.

The father has made a detailed website in his own words explaining the events which unfolded and led to the apprehension and detention of his child, emotional suffering, psychological damages and cruel inhuman degrading treatment and punishment. For more details, see the website.

The website is open to the public @ http://www.nbinjustice.com.
