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.

Ontario Family Law and its dysfunctional apparatchiks

Canada Court Watch has a series of videos on matters relating to citizens and their interactions with the Courts, particularly the Family Law regime, AKA as FLAW. This mechanism for resolving family disputes is very dysfunctional and very sexist.  The following video gives you some insight into the relationships between the welfare system, known as Ontario Works in that Province, the role of its functionaries, and the government collection agency called, oxymoronically, the Family Responsibility Office (FRO) - (it is a sexist agency targeting almost exclusively men).  These agencies interact with judges and Lawyers purportedly working in the best interest of children, a phrase that has no legal meaning, and is used ad nauseum without regard to consequences for the children.
