Here is a story of incompetence by B.C.’s Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) that raises serious questions about how our system deals with families at their breaking point.

Charmaine de Silva, Estefania Duran, Jesse Ferreras and Simon Little, of Global News, do a fantastic job of unbiased and surgical reporting, revealing 
how attorney Jack Hittrich manipulated B.C. Family Court Justice Walker to bring about irreparable damage to this unfortunate family. 


The ineptitude of the BC Family Court, manipulation of 'evidence' by prosecuting attorneys, and prejudgments by presiding Family Court Justices in this travesty mirror many of our experiences in Halifax Family Court. Ironically, the approach taken by Jack Hittrich aligns with our satirical How-To Guide for Using Family Court as a Weapon Against Your Ex. But, this is no joke. This shit did happen! This shit is happening in Nova Scotia, and probably everywhere else in Canadian Family Court as well.  ​​
