We’d Like To Give Fathers Their Rights Back, But First We Need to Figure Out Who Took Them Away
I am always so excited when Barbara Kay has an article published. She is so truthful and factual in her support of father’s rights. Let’s take a look:
We have British Columbia’s first review of family law in B.C. since the Family Relations Act came into force more than thirty years ago. Their July "White Paper on Family Relations Act Reform" (accepting submissions until Oct. 8) contains progressive draft legislation and policy proposals: It recommends stepping away from courts and the adversarial model in order to "adopt a conflict prevention approach to family law disputes" and urges making "children’s best interests the only consideration in parenting disputes."
Damn this is really groundbreaking. I am totally impressed that it took 30 years to come forward with this information. I mean, who knew that children’s best interests should be so exclusively focused on?
Next up is the Green Party’s unequivocal adoption of a policy of equal parenting at their August convention. By my reckoning that means every single federal party is on board with the idea that both parents have the right to maintain a strong, loving bond with their children, established through credible sociological research as necessitating 40% of the time with children beyond infancy.
