April 25 is being declared Parental Alienation Awareness Day!
Cities across Canada are declaring April 25 as Parental Alienation Awareness Day. Parental Alienation happens when one parent attempts to damage their child’s relationship with the other parent.
This could be through uttering desparaging remarks about the other parent to the child, withholding the child from the other parent, lying in court to damage the reputation of the other parent, actively attacking the other parent’s finances through the court system so he or she can no longer provide a home for the child, and so on and so on.
While there are many cases where the father is the perpetrator, it is statistically more likely that the father is the victim as the family court system still holds a bias in favour of the mother.
This action contributes to the overwhelming suicide rate. 75% of suicides are men, and about 30 of those 75 are entangled in the family court system.
Please, on April 25, support Parental Alienation Awareness by emailing or calling your MPP and demanding that Family Law be revised. Demand implied 50-50 split custody with no child support, and demand that paralegals be allowed to practice family law.
