Hello, thank you for the question. I'm sorry you've been waiting. I do a lot of work with and against the child welfare authorities in Ontario. I was hoping that a BC expert would take your question but I don't know if there are any BC lawyers currently active as experts on the site. I'm happy to discuss your matter with you if you'd like to proceed?

If so that's great. As we discuss please don't use details that can identify you or especially the child. Tell me more about the mother and child and what brought the child back into foster care. Don't sugar coat it. I'm here to help and I need the facts with warts and all.
