The Ontario Court of Appeal follows in the dangerous tradition of making laws rather than ruling over them.
Ontario’s highest court has ruled that a child can have three parents in a landmark case that experts say rewrites the definition of a family.
Calling it an “important and novel case,” the Ontario Court of Appeal overturned an earlier judgment that denied a woman status as the legal guardian of a boy she has been raising with her female partner.
Disturbing and dangerous are the words I would have used.
Yesterday the appeal court unanimously agreed that it can fill a “legislative gap” in the Children’s Law Reform Act, which protects the rights of children born out of wedlock.
Fill a legislative gap? I’ve got a question for you – is it not the role of the elected legislatures to fill the gaps in legislation, rather than a bunch of unaccountable, unelected judges?
Polygamy… meet slippery slope – have fun…
