The government and the Ministry of Children and Youth Protection Services: should seriously review the "FindLaw" in order to protect abuses, torture, and deaths of children under government and private institutions care and custody.
Serenity's Law proposal aimed at protecting children is put on ice
Canadian Government, Ministry of Children and Youth Protection Services, Police Forces across the Nation, Judicial System, and Private Societies “IN THE BEST INTEREST OF CANADIAN CHILDREN” STOPS DOMESTIC TERRORISM! The criminal policies from the government and the threats, attacks, and deaths of children under the care and custody of the societies groups of thugs targeting defenseless children from poor families are causing a human tragedy across the country.
A private member’s bill tabled in the Legislative Assembly house Monday would have required adults to report to police any child who needs intervention, under the threat of six months in jail or a $10,000 fine.
Progressive Conservative MLA for Calgary-West Mike Ellis called his bill Serenity’s Law.
Private member’s bills make it into the assembly once a week, on a rotation according to party. Ellis’ turn is more than a year away, so on Monday during question period, he called on the government to ask for unanimous consent to stay one more day in the house and pass legislation that can “start saving children’s lives immediately.”
Premier Rachel Notley said while the idea was “exactly the kind of practical solution that could help close some of the gaps and loopholes” in the child intervention system, she expects that kind of proposal to come from the all-party panel announced last week.
In response, Ellis called on Notley to stop the house going into recess until the bill is passed.
“I cannot go home for Christmas knowing that more Serenitys are out there being victimized while we wait for a panel to start its work,” he said.
Notley said the rules of democracy can’t be thrown out of the window to ram a bill through the house in a single day at short notice, particularly when Ellis’ party had 44 years to overhaul the broken child intervention system.
Ellis said Monday afternoon that it was insulting to hear his bill, which he called a “common-sense amendment”, cast as political point scoring.
It proposed a simple amendment to Alberta’s Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act, which already requires adults to inform “a director” if a child is in danger. The fine stands at $2,000.
Ellis’ bill would have made it law to inform police and increase the maximum fine for not doing so to $10,000. This, he said, would avoid cases where adults know a child in care needs help, but do nothing.
“As an adult, I think we’re not only morally obligated to help — I think there’s a legal obligation,” he said. “This would have been a minor change (with) a strong impact.”
In an email, human services press secretary Aaron Manton said the public already has a strong moral and legal imperative to report suspected or witnessed abuse to child intervention staff. He said pushing that responsibility to police would load them with additional calls, delaying response times and efficiency.
“We want to work to spread awareness and information, so that people know and understand the signs of abuse, and know who to report their concerns to so they can be addressed quickly and effectively,” he wrote.
