Dear Fellow Canadians:
I am sitting here in my office with tears streaming down my face for
our country. Who, in their most hellish nightmares, would ever have
thought that anyone would feel the need to flee Canada for fear of
persecution - especially religious persecution? Flee Canada? Canada?
This is Canada, the beacon of freedom and understanding for the
entire world. People fight, steal, lie, sometimes even die as they do
anything they can to come to Canada - yet 26 mothers and 74 children
have left Canada - because they are afraid that the state, as
represented by the Children's Aid Society in Aylmer - is going to
seize their children, take them away from their family.
This is Canada? This is the country I was born in, grew up in, live
in, believe in?
I only wish I could have died before I ever heard this news. Please
someone - tell me this isn't true.
