MOTHER ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AFTER CAS REMOVED CHILDREN
It is difficult to let go of one's own privacy for the sake of others.
This is the sacrifice the Mielke's family (from Ottawa) is willing to do.
Dave Mielke wrote to me: " It's okay if you talk about it. She herself has
told others about it, and appears, right from the start, to have come to
full terms with it. Others need to know, partly to give them a real
illustration of how serious the impact of destroying a family can be, and
partly to hopefully prevent a similar occurrence from happening to someone
- After the Children's Aid Society (CAS) removed nine children from her family
for six months...
- After several thousands of dollars spent in moving to a new house and lawyer
- After months of tension and frustration, fear and inquisition...
- After the youngest of their children had been physically and sexually abused
by his foster parents...
- After the CAS imposed conditions and has been intruding in their family for
a year, without ever finding any reason for suspecting abuse...
- After "...she started complaining of constantly seeing flashbacks of our
children being taken away..."
Dave's wife attempted suicide, by taking an overdose of the pills her doctor
had prescribed for her regularly (subsequent to a problematic pregnancy) for
ten years. After several days in the hospital and a few weeks under
psychiatric care, she has now recovered.
Dave says: "What she did was so out of character that there had to be a most
unusual cause. It caught everyone by surprise, including me, our doctor,
our pharmacist, and even the psychologist."
An unjust law like Bill 6, giving the CAS powers to remove children from
their loving family without justified reason, has very serious traumatic
effects on the children, on the mother, on the father, and on society.
Innocent families from Aylmer leaving Canada for fear of the CAS?
People driven to suicide because of nightmares about a government agency?
Is this Ontario - Canada? Hard to believe.
Persecution of families must stop!
We need a team of people to call every family in the Beaches riding, where a
by-election is going to be held in the Fall. Are you going to be part of
Are you going to help to form a riding association in your area?
If you cannot help with your time, can you help financially?
