AMANDA and PR

The office of the children's lawyer is suing the CCAS, Bottineau and Kidman, Richard and Yvonne Kidman, and the other 2 Kidmans living in the house. The two boyfriends are co-deffendants in the suit.

They are suing on behalf of Jeffrey and his siblings.

Obviously if they won this lawsuit the public trustee (the office of the childrens lawyer) would hold the funds until the children were of age at which time they would receive it.

AMANDA:

I read this in The Star--Nick Pron. It was also on CTV this morning.

Very very good news in light of this horrible tragedy.

The lawsuit filed by the Children's Lawyer is a very interesting development.

A positive step - at least on the surface.

Nick has contacted the Paternal family and let them know that the CCAS and all adults invovled are being sought after in court.

its smoke and mirrors, remember its all taxpayers money,
the lawyers, we pay, and also for the legal aid lawyers for defence, and the settlement if one, is also part of the public purse.nobody wins here, its political. Who funds the CCAS we do!!!! we are now paying for this entire lawsuit the inquiry that can do no more then make sujestion, ( like so many inquests they are never followed)
The children are Crown Ward, they will not see the money. If its held in trust, who will hold on to it, and who keeps the interest and at what rate.
This is bullshit.sorry but think about it.
Citizens need to sue the government.again its are money, but until the put REAL services in place to help children and families, more and more children will be taken, and more families torn needlessly apart, I am sick of this. I hear heartbreaking story , from both sides of the boarder, many states are now turning around because of so many children's deaths and putting services into place, and NOT removing children. Jeffery should have never been place in this hell, and they had the record, anyone with half a brain, would have look closely at this family, its an excuse, social workers are great at them.
Childs lawyer LOL good political move nothing more, they should be taken down as well, as they are part of the problem. Ask the Crown wards, the children in care, the work for the agencies, and the NDP is asking for an arms length child advocate and children lawyer,
they perhaps thought of this, and pre emptive it. The children may not be able to sue one day, for the real damages done to them, and no one knows yet what horrors await them separated in care.
Bill 210 is going to make many more children suffer, because of the mistakes on the CCAS part, placing Jeffery with murders, they now will make much more money , be given more of are tax dollars to do checks, remove children from normal relatives, and make it much harder for them to raise, harm many more children with the needless apprehensions, just ask the social workers, its going to cause more children harm, being taken from granny, even if she is June Cleaver, to foster care, till all checks are done, poor kids, it harms them to remove then needlessly.
We need to understand what child protection is really about, its about adults profiting. Do you think anyone shed tears for Jeffery, hell no they laugh about it. I have it on tape.

The office of the childrens lawyer (Public trustee) is suing on behalf of the children. The money plus interest will be paid to the children at age 18.

The office of the childrens lawyer (public trustee) holds and disperses money to minors and the vulnerable on a regular basis--not just childrens aid cases. For example a relative died and left a life insurance policy to his minor child. This child was young so the public trustee held the monies until they were 18. They paid interst, I might add, at a higher rate than the banks. Statements are issued on a regular basis.

Perhaps you ought to investigate this before you knock it down. The "clan" have no money BUT in the event they do one day this money would be paid into the courts (assuming they lost the case)

I am glad "GRANDPA" and grandma are facing the music in some form of court for the sexual assault committed on one of Jeffrey's siblings. This disgusting action came out in criminal court.

I think the lawyer going after them is good and that money is put into trust for the siblings. It is the least that they can do.

The NDP are to be greatly commended as well they really are showing care towards Jeffrey.

Suing the CCAS will bring negative attention to them and although you are all right; it IS our money they are using to defend themselves, etc., at least more people will be aware of what they did and the responsiblity they hold. It's fantastic that a trust fund will be set up for the siblings with any 'won' money! They need a good start when they are 18... let's hope they have healed enough to know it will get better!

I work with clients that have public trustees and it is a positive system. As they are responsible for all life decisions and have the right to tell CCAS that the kids need to be together. Child Lawyers are only interested in the childrens interest and whats best for them in most cases. They can also override any decisions made by CCAS.
