In a recent shocking case in New Brunswick (NB), a woman with no biological connection, or familial link to a two-and-a-half year old child being called “Pip”, demanded 50 percent custody and decision rights to that child, on the grounds that the woman should be the father, because she had kidnapped the child, and refused to return him to his mother, unless the mother signed an alleged joint custody agreement.

The NB family court has entertained this senseless case, based on criminal coercion, as legitimate. Claiming that it is a he said she said situation, and they can’t comprehend who might be telling the truth, without first going to trial, and putting the young child through years of physical and psychological trauma.

The legal council of the biological mother in that case has said: “Increasingly, family law in Canada is shifting away from placing value on the biological connection between a parent and a child and, instead, prioritizing “pre-conception intent” and the status quo. While some of these developments reflect a laudable desire to consider variations in family formation (e.g., adoption), these developments may be going too far, such that the mere normalized presence of a person in a child’s life could arguably be used to formalize that person as that child’s parent. Such is the concern in this case, where a former partner—whose involvement in the biological mother’s life happened to overlap with the first two years of the child’s life and whose involvement was prolonged by abuse, manipulation, and coercive control—is now asserting parentage over a child with whom she has no biological connection and of whom she was never intended to be a parent.”

Indeed, in the last 7 years, since the introduction of Gender Identity as a human right under Federal Bill C-16_2017, we have seen parent’s rights over their children stripped away, in favor of the concept of ‘co-parent’. Teachers are now claiming that they have the right, for the well being of a child, to keep secret from you, your child’s gender confusion. Saying that as ‘co-parents’ of your kids for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, that you would not have the ‘expertise’ or compassion to love and help them.
