The power afforded Nova Scotia Maintenance Enforcement is huge and in many ways far more invasive and influential in motivating payers than even Family Court Justices. It is almost unheard of that a recipient is withdrawn from the program. Well, Angela Power was one of those very few who managed to succeed in alienating her largest advocate in this effort and all under some very suspicious circumstances.


"My daughter’s graduation prom was held in May of 2014.  Prior to the dance, the traditional picture-taking event was held at the Public Gardens in downtown Halifax.  This was the day my little girl had talked about for years; it was the culmination of hard work and a coming of age for her and her peers.  The sun was shining and the parents were proudly standing around chatting and taking pictures. The girls were beautiful in their gowns and everyone was smiling and happy."​ This is how the story starts, but turns nasty through a vindictive and mean spirited act against an unsuspecting and innocent high school graduate. 

​This jaw dropping story is a true account of an event that has taken place with the acknowledgement of the NS Department of Justice, its Minister, a Family Court Justice, the Barrister's Association and the law firm of Burchell McDougall.

Ms. Angela Power claims to have been given permission by Maintenance Enforcement to operate as a vigilante and her actions appear to reflect this unrestricted freedom. She claims that, “MEP has told me that I can enforce on my own and they will not kick me out again”. However, Ms. Power has gone beyond making attempts to enforce. She is operating without constraints in her campaign to seek retribution.

What is the truth? Does Angela Power continue on her crusade operating outside of the boundaries set by MEP, or has NS MEP overstepped its jurisdiction and boundaries?​

Justices don't like being wrong, and they hate being made fools. However, it is common practice in Canadian Family Courts where Lawyers and Liars manipulate and and mix truths with lies to make fools of justices and a mockery of our justice system.

Explore a formula for manipulation that is used for vindictive retribution benefiting only lawyers and news media.

​​Tilly's Tall Tale ​      

In 2016, both of my adult children reached out to the Minister of Justice in Nova Scotia, Diana Whalen (now retired) to express their concerns and voice their opinion on how our family court case had been mishandled and how the Family Justice System had failed them. They pleaded for help directly from the Minister of Justice.

As the Minister, Diana Whalen was responsible for the actions of the Maintenance Enforcement Program and the bureaucratic process of administering ‘justice’ for families in the province and ultimately the only one who could help.

Diana Whalen, Minister of Justice (Ret.)

After years of living through a protracted and contentious court case between my husband and his  ex-wife, I reached out to our Justice Minister, Diana Whalen (retired) in an attempt to come

The court case had been playing out for several years by this time, yet the time that elapsed between the day I spoke out to Diana Whalen and the day the decision was made against me that allowed this unlawful lien to be placed on my home was a total of six weeks.

The actions taken by the province suggest a vindictive motive and I believe I was made to pay for speaking up.  I feel that the province, rather than acknowledge their errors, attempted to bully me into silence.

to a resolution.  I provided the minister with evidence that Angela Power had manipulated the system and also that processes were not being correctly followed within her department with the expectation that she would ensure investigation. I also extended an offer as an attempt to resolve the situation. I reached out for the first time during this long and drawn out series of events surrounding my husband’s family court case with his ex-wife.  Up until this point, I had remained mostly silent.

Diana Whalen forwarded my document (which was marked on every page
