Change definitions of Parent & Father in Acts Governing Children & Families

      Roseneath, Canada

Biological Fathers and grandparents are losing their children or grandchildren therefore putting a strain on the funding to Children Aid Societies for foster care, and allowing for adoptions that are not necessary.

The Family Law Act does not recognize Biological fathers who 1. did not live with the mother during the 300 days prior to birth 2. did not live with her after the birth and 3. who were not married to the mother. This is discrimination of the cruelest kind not just to the father but the Child/children. IF DNA testing proves a man is the Biological father and he wants to have custody and/or access he should be given that right.

If the mother, father or both are deemed as unfit parents then all other family members who are willing to take the child/children should be given that chance.

We the undersign want the Children's Aid, the Ontario Government and Justice System to STOP taking our children!

We demand the Attorney General make the necessary changes in this Act recognizing the Biological fathers, whose children are not the result of a sexual assault or incest.  We also demand that amendments be made to grant grandparents and other family members custody or access to these children.

We also demand changes to the law that makes Children's Aid workers accountable and not above the Law for perjury, falsification of documents, neglect when a child is hurt while in their care and for the physical abuse some children receive during apprehension.

If a parent is chargeable for these offenses then so should they be.

NOTE

If you are worried about repercussions from your worker or from the society but really want to sigh this petition, please feel free to just use your first initial and last initial.

      I went to the Legislature Petition page and found out that this form of petition is not acceptable. The signatures have to be in ink not electronical. The Ontario Government is so behind the times! I also found out in order for me to submit a petition I have to reside in the Province where it is being submitted. So what I have done is uploaded the document to my personal website for people to download, sign, mail or fax to Dalton McGuinty's office or to The Honourable John Gerretsen, Attorney General of Ontario. Fax Numbers, Email addresses, and Telephone numbers for both are on the form. Click or copy and paste the link to your browser's address bar. Edit it and Send it you your Attorney General and Provincial Leader. I will post the local information for each province on the facebook group or you can email me at kimgoebel@hotmail.com Please just put "Petition" in the subject.

      I think that if the father is a good parent than they deserve the right to be that parent, Its not fair to the father if the women got pregnant and leaves so he has no way of being there.. If the mother isn't allowed to be with the child and the father is willing and loving and the family behind him is there that child should be allowed to be with his father and his family don't let the child suffer of not knowing his or her family

      I am signing this in support of all the families who have been striped of their biological right to parent their children. CAS have flowen under the laws of the human rights for far to long and our government have ignored our rights for way to long! Make CAS accountable for their misrepresentations and give the canadian families back what is rightfully theirs!
