CFSM - “Citizens for Social
A Mission Perspective on
Child and Family Rights in Canada
• The fostering of public awareness and within the context
of and in respect to, the inherent complexities of coupling a “social”
obligation to curb child abuse, with a “moral” necessity
to protect the innocent.
• To lobby provincial government, into reformation of the
CFSA, or as in a best case scenario. Repeal the act and draft legislation
which truly expresses a platform of proper respect and admiration
for child and family values. As opposed to, the continued misappropriation
of a CAS agenda, which interpolates their “special/business
interests” with child protection and by cover of law. For
in practical application, the current act fails miserably, in addressing
child abuse. And having said that, then what was the ultimate goal
of the act? Or was it merely a venue, for the creation of the CAS
business model? As we suggest, once you’ve taken a moral inventory
of this act, you can envision, but one broadly painted picture.
And its not a mosaic of safe and happy children at play, but more
over, a subscription into the minds of evil intent. Fair, compassionate,
rule of law, “right of life, liberty, security of person”?
Child protection? Family rights? Not at all. As you will not discover
any of these validations of humanitarian provisos here. Not in this
act, and we submit, certainly not in any family court in the land.
So going forward and having offered these opinions and while in
ultimate consideration of the “overall picture of child protection”,
we shall endeavor to provide the international community, with all
pertinent, necessary information and in terms of forcing Canadian
compliance and with those treaties and convention’s obligations,
of which Canada is a signatory.
• In educating families, as to the misconceptions of CPS
investigative technique, whereby and in order to point out, the/a
legitimate right, in refusing an intrusion into ones parental domain
or if you will, by the “initial” or “first contact”
involvement of an intake worker and with respect to an area of,
an individuals right to personal and privacy protections. Otherwise,
any unlawful assertions, which violate these “rights”
and for that matter, conflict with the rights of “any individual”
and not necessarily that of a citizen, must be seen as, egregious.
Or and as to proper application of “search and seizure”.
Wherein, such violations of law or Charter, shall not be so misconstrued
as to intent, so as to be interpreted merely, as some open invitation
for an abuse of power and authority. Nor as in any pretext, for
an unwarranted “police” or CAS/CPS intervention.
• While and therefore, to assist families with children in
the care and custody of any CPS, in a best effort to ascertain,
a/the necessity for assistance, or rather an within the context
of any determination, as to whether an intervene, is in fact warranted.
Assuming first, the merits of the case and secondly, that indeed
the ‘cause of action’ was unsubstantiated and with respect
to both, probable and reasonable application and as guided by the
‘rule of law’.
• To elevate and in accordance with, systemic “flaws”
in child protection, “fairness” and “transparency”,
to the pinnacle benchmark accorded under the “right to life,
liberty and security’‘’‘’‘ and
with cognizant respect for ones rights. That in and by a “citizens”
ultimate rights and responsibility, in confronting unfair rule and
unjust laws’, that s/he shall take any and all appropriate
actions, wherever necessary and as accorded them, under the rule
of law. •While, bringing an end to, this “secreted”
world of child protection and as such, pry open the family court
to public scrutiny.
• Demand accountability, from “all” professionals
and including, but not limited to, social workers through the College
of Social Work.
For and as a desirable goal, we shall attempt to broaden the scope
and platform of child abuse awareness, reverse this unilateral tendency,
for “protection by proxy” and ultimately, apply a realistic
approach to the root cause of abuse and its contributing factors.
That in the area of childs rights, we shall seek to alleviate this
notion, which views the child(ren) as a separate entity. While bearing
in mind, that since the beginning of time, the “family”
has been the societal backbone of humanity. So and within this guidance,
it is of utter necessity, to seek a more common ground and one which
is in keeping, with a reasonably objective and “equitable”
division of “child” and “family” rights.
To ultimately bring together and under one banner, all child advocacy
groups, here in Ontario, throughout Canada proper and as well, worldwide..................
