Rights of Children and Family. Applicants for immediate and impartial investigation Into the policy of "Youth Protection" In Québec and Canada

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 12, 2010) -

RECOGNIZING the vital need to secure and promote children's Rights;

DEPLORING the lack of effective socio-educational intervention towards families in difficulty, including the repressive character of the Youth Protection Act (Quebec);

CONDEMNING the arbitrariness of legislative, executive and judicial authorities with regards to the administration of "child protection" policies;

RECALLING the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UN), including:

Article 3 Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.

Article 16 (3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.

Article 30 Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.

RECALLING that 10 (ten) years ago, on October 13 2000, the Supreme Court of Canada, as per Winnipeg Child and Family Services v. K.L.W., 2000 SCC 48 [2000], misapplied the constitutional guarantees of children's Rights in the context of "child protection" enforced by the State;

DENOUNCING the complicity of the Supreme Court of Canada in enforcing State policies irreversibly altering children's family environment through perverse unconstitutional rulings affecting the Rights of the Child;

EXPOSING the State's nefarious pursuit and furtherance of ultra vires policies, including Youth Protection (DYP) Officials whose illegal acts and omissions constitute an attack against a civilian population and a course of conduct involving the multiple commission of acts referred to in article 7, paragraph 1 of the Rome Statute (Crimes against humanity), including: e) Severe deprivation of physical liberty (of the children) in violation of fundamental rules of international law; f) Torture; h) Persecution; k) Other inhuman acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious injury to body or mental or physical health;

WE THEREFORE URGE the House of Commons in Parliament to reaffirm and specifically recognize the fundamental rights of children – including their parents and grandparents – as benefiting from the full and equal protection guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and,

ESTABLISH an independent commission of inquiry into defective State policies regarding "child protection", as well as the State's conduct regarding the multiple commissions of the aforementioned acts by the Directors of Youth Protection Services and relevant State agencies.

WE ASK the National Assembly of Quebec to urgently amend the Youth Protection Act in accordance with principles of constitutional and international Law in order to faithfully reflect the Rights of the Child and those affecting immediate family members and ensure them an effective protection against any unlawful action or inaction, arbitrary interference of their privacy or other abuses of power committed by any agent of the State.
