I have met and heard the tragic stories of many parents. PA is a function, by and large, of a custodial ex-partner, although some alienation can start while the couple is still together.

This blog is a story of experiences and observations of dysfunctional Family Law (FLAW), an arena pitting parent against parent, with children as the prize. Due to the gender bias in Family Law, that I have observed, this Blog has evolved from a focus solely on PA to one of the broader Family/Children's Rights area and the impact of Feminist mythology on Canadian Jurisprudence and the Divorce Industry.

A campaigner for fathers' rights has started a hunger strike outside the prime minister's house.
Fathers4Justice (F4J) founder Matt O'Connor, 44, started the protest outside the Oxfordshire home of David Cameron, a F4J spokeswoman said.

He wants Mr Cameron to honour pledges about grandparents having a right to see their grandchildren and over shared parenting.

Mr O'Connor, from Hampshire, said he would stay as long as possible.

He also wants Mr Cameron to retract comments he made describing some fathers as "runaways".

Mr O'Connor said: "The idea is to carry on for as long as I can - even if I am hospitalised."

Mr O'Connor said his only intake would be water and lemon juice.

I love FATHERS4JUSTICE.UK group,they have done so much for the cause of Fathers.Mr.O'Connor is a visionary man who stands for what he believes.He could have easily dropped the case and go onto his own life,but he said,he wants to help fathers and help change the Law.He is awesome and we should show deep respect to men like that.Unfornunately Canada does not men with his Vision and leadership skills.WE need few of his caliber in Canada.Yes,I know,we are passive people.We do not Riot and March and hang on Telephone Poles,but we do complain.If we want change...it starts with getting Media time,TV,News,Newspapers.Teaching the Public as to what really happens behind closed doors in Family Courts.WE owe it to the Public,to let them know..it is our children who suffer,because we are so darn slow to act and so Canadian
passive !
