Quotes to Inspire

"I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law."

— Matrin Luther King Jr.

Family Responsibility Office (FRO) was responsible for my husband's death

(Dec 8, 2010) A short preview video clip of a woman who describes how her partner was stripped of all hope and dignity and eventually forced to his death by over-zealous workers with Ontario's family responsibility Office. The workers with the FRO really don't give a damn about their actions do to people. Shame on the FRO. To view the video preview go to the Canada Court Watch facebook page and go the the video section.

You know there was a story here not long ago about the number of suicide fathers in this Country,and the number made me sick.
Can anyone tell me if that story made it into mainstream media? I did send the link to W5 (CBC), but never heard anything.
These "family mediation offices" are seriously flawed, and since my encounter with them many years ago, nothing has changed. Its getting to the point where you have to ask, "do these MEP's, FRO's etc, make a profit off the fathers debt?"
Support payments are usually based on last years income, but if something happens and the father looses part or all of his income ( because of a recession for example ) then slowly but surely he falls behind on payments. Now he is labeled and treated like a "deadbeat". No mediation what so ever in regards to the family well being. Instead they will take his drivers license, so he can't work at all.
This is obviously a tactic to acquire a debt, and has no VALUE in family mediation.
What can the fathers do?..NOTHING!!!!...unless they can pay off their debt, they will be stripped of any human dignity until there is nothing left but a story like this one.
Plain and simple this is "involuntary manslaughter".


this is exactly what the cas and fro did to my family we are enduring a 10 year ongoing nightmare which started in 2000 and is still going on to this day.

on oct 1 2010 we just lost our home because of the cas and fro whos interference cost me 2 jobs and we where forced to pay inflated support to the fro when our (3)children where apprehended.

I had a breakdown but did,t die(i ended up in the hospital at age 47 for the first time in my life) but it was real scarry for a while i swear the cas pushes the fathers to the brink of suicide on purpose, hopeing to destroy the men.

they made me leave my home and live away from my wife and 1 child they gave back in 2002 to 2005.

they eventully gave 2 of my 3 children back but they messed them up.

then in 2008 when my son who they apprehended in 2002 had his own son my grandson they apprehended my grandson and forced my son to leave his family(seems like my family has a target on our back) as well the cas just made up reasons why my son had to leave.(and on the way taking my son to a grouphome in 2002 the cas worker told my 11 year old son it was his fault him and his siblings where taken)

My family is still dealing with the cas now its been over 10 years of there interference,i call it a practice of destroying familys, nothing the cas dose has been of any help to my family it has mostly been destructive to my family.

you know what is the scarriest is the judge's they just go along with whatever the cas wants even when the evedence is based on hearsay and manipulated testamony and downright lies the judges scare me the most they seem like puppets on the strings of the cas.
