Odds of Adequate Job or Life Success in Canada 50/50 Chances At Best


Here are the facts about emigrating to Canada risks —

Getting adequate employment: 50/50 odds. A coin flip.

Getting separated or divorced: 50/50 odds. A coin flip.

Feeling lucky?

What happens if taking both of these bets at the same time?


Combining both odds = 75% Chance of Failure in Canada

Historically, many immigrants have seen Canada as a safe haven to attain personal freedom, adequate employment, peace of mind and a safe place to start a family. Many new Canadians and natural Canadians have realized that life; historically.

But, that was before 1986. Since then it got much worse. In 1997, Canada introduced a sweeping set of social laws that tipped the balances.

Success in one’s life is affected by one’s health, by one’s job, and by one’s relationship with others, such as marriage and family.

These factors can combine for success or failure in life. For most of us, life success can be a product of two of these factors: job and relationship.

Put in mathematical terms, combining 50-50 odds of failing to maintain adequate employment on top of 50-50 odds of family failure results in only 25% for success (0.50 multiplied by 0.50 = 0.25). Said in inverse terms: 75% odds of failure at success in life in Canada.

Sadly, when facing odds of 75% failure at life in Canada plus risks to one’s life from federal and provincial harsh family laws, immigrants would be wise to reconsider their choices before coming to Canada.


50% of Immigrants Asked Report Difficulty in Adequate Employment 4 Years After Arriving

According to a considerable number of studies, including longitudinal studies, new immigrants face significant difficulties in Canada’s employment market.

Finding adequate work was the most often cited difficulty, mentioned by almost half of new immigrants asked (46%, Longitudinal Study Immigration Canada Statistics Canada Report 2005). Almost half or 50% means nearly one in two, or in other words, 50/50 odds (odds of adequate employment 4th year out is the same as a coin flip).


At greatest risk if you are a productive 30- or 40-year old:

In Statistics Canada reports, we read that,

Positive assessments of life in Canada are LESS prevalent among individuals in their thirties and forties, and university  graduates, and skilled worker applicants than in other  groups.” – Date: 2010-02-18. Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada (LSIC).


Even if you survive the toss-of-a-coin odds of 50/50 for adequate employment, the other big factor to affect your success in life in Canada is your marriage (or marriage-like relationship), specifically its success or failure. Its success or failure can have a powerful effect on your success in life, your happiness.


Chances are 50/50 that you are likely to separate from your mate or get divorced.

StatsCan graph of 70000 divorces annually

For example, Statistics Canada reports that 70,000 divorces occur each year (formal). With counting all forms of separation or divorce Canada’s families fail at the surprising rate of one in two: 50/50.

No-fault Divorce was introduced as the law in Canada in 1968 (no infidelity or abuse is necessary for either partner to file in court for separation). The median age of men divorcing is 44, for women it is 41.

After introduction of No-fault Divorce, there was a significant change in the rate of divorce. In 1986, a further change to the law reduced the grounds for divorce to just one (“marriage breakdown”).

Currently, the rate of failure in Canada of first marriages is 42 percent (more than 4 out of 10). When that is combined with failures in marriage-like relationships (living together), the odds can be one-in-two that families are dissolving (50/50 odds).



Combining the Odds of Separation and Inadequate Employment: 75% Failure Rate

If men divorce and fail to maintain adequate employment, the odds of life success in Canada drop to 1 in 4 (a 25% chance of success in life versus a 75% chance for failure). Take a moment to think about this.



Life Could Be Made To Go “Out of Control” by Family Laws and Family Court Judges or Life May End:

Martin Wong has studied Statistics Canada Reports and Family Laws and Family Court Reports for more than 10 years. Based upon court transcripts and findings of a Special Canada Joint Committee Report (“For the Sake of the Children”), he reports that if you separate or divorce in Canada, and despite your “playing by the rules,” including paying child support as you are able to earn income, you are still at risk of arbitrary renderings by hostile family court judges operating under hostile-to-family laws.

The prosecutions are pernicious, life altering, and in some cases, life-ending (documented, suicides by distraught men). Have your family lawyer explain them to you, not your immigration services agent who may omit or discount these facts in order to benefit from your immigration transaction.

Here is a link to a post revealing 12 Risks To Family Life and Hazards To Men who become former husbands in Canada. Be informed. Read them. Understand them. If you need help, ask a family lawyer to explain these 12 Risks to you in full.

SUGGESTION: If you ever suspect that your immigration agent is over-promising or even lying to you, here’s how to tell: “Are you being lied to?” Study this material like your life depends upon it. Why? According to a professional deception detection expert the average person tells 3 lies in the course of each 10 minutes of conversation. What if your immigration agent did that to you? Where does it start and stop? Only you can tell when you are equipped with this essential skill. Alternatively, if you don’t have the interest for that, then pay a reputable Family Law expert to read and explain the entire content of this website to you BEFORE you decide to live in Canada.


Are 50/50 odds good enough for you?

More prudent immigrants and some natural Canadians are not willing to accept those odds of failure versus success. When combining those 50% x 50% odds resulting in only 25% Odds for Life Success together with cruel family court-ordered outcomes, then some say one’s success in life in Canada starts out under severely handicapped odds of  75% odds of failure and facing the 12 Risks to Family Life in Canada as shown in next post.


How To Be Better Prepared IF You Still Want To Live in Canada

If still intent on life in Canada, then prudent and prepared professionals or skilled-worker applicants are well advised to obtain a vasectomy as soon as possible so that Canadian government enforcement agencies and courts do not have an opportunity to use your children as leverage against you in prosecution or persecution of former husbands or single-men paternity lawsuits. Simply put, a man living in Canada can not survive the avalanche of multiple-layered attacks if he accidentally gets a woman pregnant and she files with the enforcement agencies.

Think you can escape the odds and the attacks from the courts? Think again. See the next post, “12 Risks to Life in Canada” for a shocking explanation.


Take a moment to think about it:

As an immigrant or as a landed Canadian, are you now thinking of avoiding the risks to life in Canada? For those not willing to flip a coin not once (jobs) but twice (jobs x divorce = 25% success), then perhaps other countries may be more attractive places in which to live. Such as Venezuela or Chile.

CANADA’S DIRTY DOZEN: Citizenship and Immigration Canada Not Revealing Risks to Family Life in Canada


  Shocked And Surprised Triplets by Stuart Miles

 Shocked & Surprised to Learn Canada’s Dirty Dozen


12 Risks to those emigrating to Canada and to ALL families already living in Canada

This cautionary message is aimed at parents and foreign families emigrating to Canada or any couple already living in Canada. Considering the odds of separation or divorce in Canada, half of the married men in Canada or in a ‘3-month living-together relationship’ are at 50/50 odds of falling prey to these life-altering forces.

This report is based on provincial family laws, court records and real-life accounts by men prosecuted and persecuted by Canada’s Family Courts and those appointed as judges. For example, the Province of Ontario can impose human rights sanctions at the discretion of its agency called the Family Responsibility Office.

(References: click on links in red font.)



(1) Men – Seizure of 50% (half) of your income, your assets, and half your pension income.

Confiscated: Half of your earnings, half or more of your assets, plus half of your monthly income from your private or employer-based pension and the federal government pension (the national plan you are forced to contribute to while working in Canada). Plus, the government can force confiscation of 50% of provincial, municipal or local social assistance paid to men if they apply for social assistance to supplement their 1/2-pension income (actually the one-half becomes lessened due to income taxes taken from your assistance at the same rate “as if” the full pension was paid to the pensioner).


(2) Seizure of Passport, Professional & Driver’s Licenses


You are at risk of having your passport and your professional licenses seized including: pilot, pharmacy, medical, and licenses to operate a locomotive, bus, taxi, heavy equipment or commercial vehicle, plus common driver’s licenses. These seizures eliminate your freedom of employment choices and freedom of movement. And those seizures may eliminate your ability to earn and to pay support or to pay down arrears.


(3) Debtor’s Prison Reinstated in Canada


If you are in support arrears you are at risk of having a nation-wide warrant for your arrest being issued against you. And, you are at risk of being put in jail for up to 6 months per court appearance cycle, and at risk of being re-cycled back into jail the same day you get out to go to court.

Family courts in Canada can put you in jail and keep putting you back in jail until you make “satisfactory payment” of the debt to your former spouse. How or if or from where you can produce the money is never a consideration. Sometimes father’s relatives or current wives take pity upon the fathers and pay his debt for him just to get him out of jail (what the Enforcement Agencies like to call it, Magic Fountain, the money appears out of thin air). If you don’t pay, you may go back to jail until you do. Thereby, there is risk of your long-term incarceration for a (deemed) bad debt; hence, Debtor’s Prison. In effect, the Medieval law of debtor’s prison has been reinstated in Canada.


(4) No Academic Reporting In Forced Tuition Payments

Photobucket moneyfire

You may also be at risk of being forced to pay for their college or university costs up to and including their first degree or to age 24.

Unlike jurisdictions in America, where in fairness to the one paying for it, in Canada there are no academic minimum achievement levels required for such students to determine if you continue to pay. So, if a court-ordered supported student fails to obtain passing grades in any semester or quarter term, you are still forced to pay. You are obligated to pay for their academic costs until they attain their 24th birthday or their first degree (if the student ever gets a degree).

Their only career choice could be simply to keep going to various post-secondary learning institutions. Their choice of Major Course of Study could continuously change and lead to no conclusion (just aimless drifting from one course to another). They may frequently change universities, downgrading to  junior colleges and downgrading again to vocational schools (e.g., hair-and-nails beauty schools). The only limits to this aimless and endless wandering are: to age 24 or their first (if ever) degree. This leaves you likely to pay support to age 24 but the “child” (an adult by then) having nothing to show for it.

You will not be allowed to see their academic reports and you can not force anyone to provide them to you under Canada’s laws. Family Laws or the family courts will not obligate the custodial parent to regularly report the status of the children. The children’s academic progress or lack of it will not be ordered to be made available to the father. In contrast, fathers of intact families in Canada are not obligated by law to pay for such academic interests (creating two different categories of citizen; in other words, Canada condones social discrimination).


(5) Taxation Discrimination Legal in Canada


Separated fathers pay tax on income they never see. Any support you are ordered to pay is not tax-deductible. Paying support including your children’s university or college costs you are ordered to pay is not tax-deductible. Your former mate will not pay income tax on the amounts you pay her (whether she has a job or not).

In these cases, Canadian law permits the existence of two sets of rules in taxation of families, discriminating between “intact families” and “extended families.” College and university costs are deductible by fathers in one family (intact) while not in another (separated, extended). This, despite the courts linking members of an extended family (court records and orders linking fathers to custodial parent and children).

Income earned by support payers (men) is taxable, and income earned by single women is taxable, however, support income to divorced recipients (women) is not taxable. Thus, taxation discrimination is lawful in Canada on multiple levels.


(6) Un-tested Beneficiary says “When Okay” to stop court-ordered support


In Canada, there are no legal demands on the custodial support recipient to regularly and periodically provide hard-copy proof of the children’s status to anyone: (i) Not to the support payer, and (ii) Not to the support maintenance-enforcement agency, whose sole reason for existence we are led to believe is “responsibility” and “accountability.” She can quite literally “phone it in.”

A former wife in Canada is entitled to support payments until SHE tells the courts when to stop enforcing payments from a former husband. Unlike other countries where the recipient is required to provide periodic proof of her eligibility for these payments, women in Canada are not required by any legislation to do so.

There exists no provincial legislation compelling the custodial parent to periodically send in or produce testable proof of eligibility for continuing support, despite if:

  • a spouse remarries (spousal support) or
  • any of the children leave the custodial home (child support), or if they attain a certain age, or if
  • custodial post-high school student has flunked out of college or trade-school one or more terms or if
  • anyone co-habits with the custodial spouse of the “children” meaning they began living with an added adult.

During the court case there may be or may not be “suggestions” and “discussion” but under the law there are no mandatory requirements upon the custodial parent to report routinely, no “or else lose support” if one monthly report is late or missing. Translated into real-life terms, this is coerced payment without justification.

Yet men are often court-ordered to report if income increases but are not required to report if their income decreases. If men’s incomes decrease, and men hope to pay less monthly support then they are required to petition the opposite party through the courts to have support adjusted. If support income is disputed and if men lose then the court costs and lawyer’s fees of his side plus those of the opposite party (see court transcripts).

If the man has no cash with which to pay, he may have those costs added to his support account. That addition may put him into “instant arrears” and he may suffer added fees plus additional interest charges until paid in full. There could be a lot more fees appearing suddenly during any of his returns to court.

The custodial parent is often represented at no cost to her because men are going to court against “the state” and she is the state’s witness. The “state” enforcement agency has legal teams to fight men in court. In effect, her legal fees are paid by taxpayers while men’s legal fees are paid by the individual man. Even when she may hire her own lawyer, courts have seen the state agency’s lawyers consulting during the session (actively participating). In those cases, men may be challenged by a tag-team of opponents and in an environment shown to be pre-disposed towards the custodial parent (see Gender Bias section report by sworn witnesses in a Special Parliamentary Joint Senate and House Committee Report). Again, men’s opposition may consist of tag-teamed efforts from (i) opposing counsels, (ii) gender bias at the judicial level, and (iii) statutory bias at the legislative level (see next).


(7) Arrears Deemed in Chambers Despite Legislated Reverse Onus On Support Payer to “Disprove a Negative” (Guilty Until Proven Innocent)

A fiction cannot rule over reality, or can it? In Canada it can. A judge in court or alone in his chambers (including while denying your call for a hearing to defend yourself) can order a support payer into an automatic arrears position by deeming income to be at any level without having to accept factual proof to the contrary (pay stubs or income tax filings).

There are no regulations upon the judge or the courts to accept and rely upon any aspect about of a respondent’s (typically fathers) evidence in any case. Disclosure does not guarantee acceptance or consideration. The Ontario Court of Appeal has decided judges may ignore evidence and then impute at will when it comes to determining support payer’s income (ignoring the facts, judges are making groundless legal decisions).

Your actual level of income may have no bearing upon what level the judge chooses to set your income. You may be deemed by the court as under-employed. An example: If you lose your job in your regular vocation and have to take a job flipping hamburgers to stay alive you may be deemed as “under employed” for your qualifications (no matter if alternative employers are not hiring anyone, or not willing to hire you, or despite providing proof you are seeking traditional employment). The reality of a new lower income may not be considered by a family court judge (seen, court transcripts). Judges can arbitrarily set your income level for support purposes “AS IF you are making the same earnings at the job you lost.”

Respondents Guilty Until Proven Innocent – Under these laws, counter arguments from you or your representative can go unrecognized or unaccepted or be dismissed by the judge (without question by any standing review board). In other words, even if you provide factual evidence in your defense it can be arbitrarily dismissed (seen done in court transcripts).

Under these laws, there is a Reverse Onus of Proof where the obligation is on the payer to disprove a negative. A judge arbitrarily sets a respondent’s income whether he may be gainfully employed at a lower level or not working at all. The respondent is obligated to fight that (onus) to prove he is not either at that income level or working (proof of a negative). Hence, he is “guilty until proven innocent” despite providing “proof” (providing pay stubs or unemployment records or tax returns have all been seen ignored in decisions by the courts, ref. court transcripts). In other words, the payers’s evidence carries no weight when it comes to a court’s decision. However, the reverse, the woman’s evidence or allegations appear to carry the weight for judges’ decisions (seen in transcripts) and in the sworn testimony of hundreds of witnesses to the Joint Senate-Parliament Committee Report (1998).

This lack of integrity in procedure and evidentiary rules and regulations in family law and courts is contrary to all other forms of law, including criminal law and tort law. Canada’s family law and what appears as law in family courts remain irrational:  In practical terms, one cannot rationally prove a negative. Again, respondents often cannot prove themselves as innocent because courts simply dismiss the facts in favour of arbitrary decisions abstracted from the minds of Canada’s family court judges. Effectively, this describes a “Kangaroo Court” or a “Catch-22″ or a “Kafka-esque” reality. How else could such an irrational situation be described? See Lack of Due Process, next.


(8) Absence of Justice – Lack of Due Process

Photobucket Tyrant

Lack of Consistency in Federal v. Provincial Statutes and Regulations and Evidentiary Rules. Testimony Not Tested. Lack of Due Process.

There are instances of former spouses lying under oath to the judge, while in his defense the payer produces factual proof to the contrary, and then the sitting judge issues no penalty to the offending spouse perjuring herself to the court. Additionally, a former spouse may sign her affidavit and swear to it under oath despite such affidavits containing: misinformation, deceit, and outright lies from these former spouses, from third-party hearsay, and half truths from inept investigators (who are not under oath). There is evidence of family courts  accepting these without diligent or vigorous probing and then incorporating these in their ‘reasons for judgement’ while at the same time questioning but not accepting the true facts of payers’ submissions (i.e., gender bias in the courts, report here).

Even if payers or their legal representatives file a request for a hearing to defend their submissions or to submit supporting or related evidence in a hearing, the judge can deny a hearing (lack of due process). In examples of  disputed amounts of your income, the judge may deem your case any way that s/he wishes without your opportunity to provide a counter argument in a hearing.

One of many inconsistencies in supplying evidence is this example: While Canada’s Family Laws and Regulations clearly state one spouse cannot submit evidence from prior events that may jeopardize a later case, the standard evidence submission forms ordered for use in Provincial Family Court contain spaces to be filled in with known prior cases. By illustration, if a former spouse attacked her husband with a kitchen knife and he is sent to the hospital that evidence would not be allowed, whereas, Provincial family court forms call for the last 3 appearances and descriptions if the payer is applying for a material-means adjustment in support level (unequal, unfair rules for submissions). What purpose does the latter serve if not to jeopardize an unbiased appreciation of one side?

When case transcripts are compared where the roles of offending parties are reversed in gender, the family courts issue very different decisions. By illustration, if a man is heard and convicted of stalking his ex-spouse, he is likely to go to jail. But, if a woman committed the same act of stalking, she was more likely issued a verbal warning or if “professionally” represented, perhaps she has had her case dismissed. Similarly, no matter if the covenants of their separation agreement (a contract) stated they mutually agree they are to go on in separate lives and to live unfettered or bothered in any way by the other. If she violated the covenants, there are no consequences to her, but if gender-reversed (he bothers her), courts become excited. Here, then, provincial family laws and courts fail to measure up to standard contract law for breach of agreement or equality under the law.

Some see family law precedents and courts as having their own circular evolution in an unsupervised or unregulated manner, to the point of the absence of fair and equal treatment under the law being the standard of justice in Canada’s provinces. Case transcripts reveal this absence of justice, and the lack of due process, to be perfectly legal in Family Courts in Canada. This is a departure from all other jurisprudence in Canada, including criminal law or contract law (tort law).


(9) Permanent Arrears, Permanent Debt, Permanently Poor, Put onto a Deadend

standing facing a wall

Your new “instant” arrears may grow to become such a large amount. Arrears increased by monthly interest charges may put you into “permanent” arrears (forever) because you may never earn enough to repay the arrears from out of the one-half of your income you may be permitted to keep each pay day. The debt is never forgiven by the courts unless the former and distant spouse agrees to this. There are no means tests for her to see if she needs any part of your pension. Thereby, you can be forced to pay your former mate one half of your pension income until you die whether she pre-deceases you or not (her estate continues to have claim on you even though she may expire before you do).


(10) Tripped by Three-Strikes Trigger

Photobucket tripping hazzard

Any arrears in support occurring just 3 times, at any 3 points in time, can trigger these risks. Even if not completely true, her claim to the authorities can seemvalid enough to the authorities. A mere phone call may be all that is required to have you “marked” by the enforcment agency (agency operates without oversight). You may be ordered into court with all of your defense costs to be paid by you. Case Records show us that men, not women, paid court costs of the women even when women were decided in the wrong. For a more complete discussion on gender bias and unethical practices see Chapter 1, Section E Gender Bias in Courts, and see, Section F Unethical Practices by Family Lawyers, found in a Joint Senate and House report here.


(11) Women’s World-wide Web (paid for by “the State”)

women's agents monitoring worldwide

A woman who was married in Canada and living in Canada but then later moving to any where in the world can at her will start enforcement proceeding against you simply by contacting the Enforcement Agency of the Canadian province in which she was divorced. From a mere phone call from her, that government may attempt to hunt you down.

Support enforcement agencies using their pre-approved “carte blanche” pad of court orders can, at their whim, put you into the same class as Canada’s extremely dangerous criminals, launch a manhunt, monitor communications networks for you, and issue a nation-wide arrest warrant against you. A provincial Enforcement Agency may force any of your friends, relatives, or employers to reveal all information about you (compel by court order, and hold  in contempt those ordered who fail to reveal all). Some support enforcement agencies have paid contractors to review ATM Bank Machine photo records from around the country for images of your face. Thereby, for all intents and purposes, you have become an “enemy of the state,” subject to arrest on sight and incarcerated until a court sees you for sentencing, which could become a continuous loop. Thereby, Canada forces fathers into being felons (subject to continuous incarceration as mentioned above, Debtor’s Prison).


 (12) You May Appear in Wanted Postings

Photobucket wanted poster

A Wanted Posting About You may be published on the world-wide web on a government’s website. Provincial governments may post on their website a notice including a photograph and description of you and that you are wanted by them for their purposes.

This facilitates the creation of “watchers” or “hunters” any where in the world.Professional bounty hunters or amateurs motivated by money may hunt you down, hoping for a reward from your former mate or others. That search tool is conveniently provided to these watchers by Internet so that they can better recognize and know more about their target: You. However, there are no built-in safe-guards if in their zealousnous they “chase” someone who happens to look like you. That error on their part may result in very costly or even fatal errors for some  any where in the world. (Are world economic conditions ripe for amateurs to join the hunt? Could Canada be contributing to accidental deaths in cases of mistaken identity?)


“The State” as Belligerent Litigant

Canada’s provincial Family Courts have been shown to accept false testimony and untested affidavits while ignoring true facts in defense submissions. Some child-spousal Support Maintenance Agencies have been seen to withhold the status of the children from a remote court ordering the report and that remote jurisdiction’s prosecutor (acting on behalf of the original jurisdiction) being charged with contempt for failing to report as ordered.

It is readily apparent to those who study transcripts that courts have frequently issued arbitrary renderings resulting in prejudiced prosecutions of former husbands and fathers. – See Gender Bias and Unethical Practice in Special Canada Joint Committee Report “For The Sake of the Children.”

Additionally, a significant number of prosecutions have been shown to be out of the purview of the originating court, their having ripped apart the remote court’s case and rearranged the facts to suit the originating court so it could dispense pernicious and punitive, life altering rulings, and in some cases, life-ending.


The Genesis of Canadian Family Laws:

Executive Summary Abstract

Canada’s Family Laws are different from laws elsewhere and after you read this, ask your family lawyer to explain this to you (not your immigration lawyer because that immigration agent may not always tell you about all of the bad with all of the good).

In their present form, the laws are set against rational treatment of families struck by the unfortunate (yet natural) occurrence of separation or divorce. Family Laws in Canada are so hostile to those family members snared by the provincial family courts that the laws may be in part responsible for a measurable decline in qualified trades people and to some extent a decline in immigrants seeking permanent residence in Canada.

In May 1997, the Federal Liberal Government made sweeping changes to Family Laws in Canada. The Federal Liberal Government induced Canada’s provinces to immediately adopt the same laws, despite the Province’s original objections that the new retroactive law would jamb their courts and deplete their justice department budgets.

Retroactive effect means all settled cases before could be re-opened for new trials.

Federal Liberals’ stated aim was to reduce women’s poverty and focussed on single-parent females and then called a national election (June 1997). But women did not get what they expected in turn after voting for the Liberal Party. Instead, after reviewing the cold, clear facts, one reads how women’s poverty persists. Sadly, it remains unchanged from levels in 1997 to present day, a decade and a half after that promise made in June 1997.

Families have been decimated by Canada’s Family Laws and Family Courts…. Read more of Executive Summary and Genesis of Canadian Family Laws. If you may think you already know the genesis, think again.


Some Final Thoughts on Family Life in Canada

Again, common law (living together) or legal marriages are viewed to be the same in Canada. If either one severs the relationship, the above court orders and rules may suddenly apply.

Once you are “tagged” by the state under these orders and rules, you are at risk, and you will be found, controlled, and prosecuted as described above, including being separated from your income, your assets, your pension, and separated from your children (to their detriment as noted by professionals in a post below).

All of the above report is based on statutes and case law reports and available to any attorney if he or she wishes to research it.

Additionally, there are the court transcripts on file of what are termed by the Family Courts as unreported cases (but on file) about men who have undergone these “renderings” by Canada’s Family Courts.

And sadly, there are also media reports about some men who have taken to drastic measures, including suicide as a way out.



Betrayal of Women Voters in Canada (yet women don’t know the half of it)


The Liberal Party of Canada made a tantalizing promise to the women voters in 1997, but failed to deliver:

Their new divorce laws that would be enacted by May 1997 would eliminate poverty for women and single mothers by upping child-spousal support court awards. The Liberals’ appeal to women voters helped Liberals in the next month (June 1997) when they called an election. To date the majority of women still have not realized that what was promised has proven to be a sham at the outset (see U of Calgary Report) and a betrayal (see the facts below in reports of failure to improve women’s poverty, no change).

Photobucket the_shell_game

Facts: Failure in more than a decade since 1997 Divorce Act (sources, see links in Red font):

  • Government audits show $billions in payment backlogs for Enforcement Agencies: 1999. Within the first 2 years after Liberal’s 1997 Divorce Act, at the end of 1999, the FRO was 1.2 billion dollars behind in child support for women. As of March 2003, the FRO was 1.3 billion dollars behind in child support.
  • Then $billions in payment backlogs: Subsequent audits indicate continued failure. The Auditor General of Ontario Report of 2010  on Ontario’s FRO put one backlog at $1.6 billion allocated to women but not paid (open report, scroll to Page 12, right column, read Support Payments in Arrears).
  • Non-governmental Independent Reports from a women’s national child-family poverty organization show no change in poverty in during the 10 years after Liberals enacted their 1997 Laws: 2008 Report and in 2009 Report.
  • Statistics Canada 2008 report : little or no change for women in poverty in 10 years since Liberal’s enactment.
So, what has been the outcome of enacting harsh laws at the Federal and Provincial levels? –
  • No change in women’s poverty since enactment.
  • Fathers have been turned into felons and continue to be as job changes bring lower and lower wages but arrears increase courtesy of oblivious courts and enforcement agencies.
  • By the actions of courts, fathers are given the message that their children have become “part of the problem” to avoid at all costs.
  • Children have been separated from one of their parents, contributing to malformed character development.
  • Everyone is made poorer: children, parents, families, provinces, municipalities, Canada.
  • Despite today’s law makers being fully aware, they are either unable to fully comprehend the meaning of these outcomes, or, they see the consequences and deliberately ignore the harm and make a conscious decision to fail to reform or repeal Federal and Provincial Acts based in the political ambitions of past governments.
  • Evidently, today’s elected political leaders still think they are doing a marvelous job for their constituents.

Canada Not Competitive: Slowed Growth in Immigration

Not surprisingly, immigrants desirable to the Government of Canada, when seeing these factors, may shy away from choosing to move to and live in Canada. The federal government of Canada is doing this:

  • Enabling and maintaining draconian family laws,
  • Confiscating pensions promised after life-times of forced contributions to Canada Pension Plan,
  • Trampling of citizens’ legal due process and civil rights.

Collectively these factors may well contribute to a decline in desirable immigrants settling in Canada and others not renewing visas—making Canada noncompetitive. Growth in this sector of Canada’s tax base has slowed by 20%, according to Statistics Canada (Canada’s population, par. 3, 4th Quarter reports changes).

Fewer immigrants each year threatens to accelerate the shrinking of Canada’s tax base which translates into adding risk of reduced revenue necessary for federal and provincial governments and Canada’s pensioners to pay their bills.

Confiscation of Pension Income 50% and up to 100%

50% of a Man’s Pension Income Diverted: whether former spouse needs or not

100% of a Man’s Pension Income Diverted: both halves of pensions seized

Taxation: Former fathers still taxed on the full gross amount.


Courts Can Legally Ignore Facts, Impute Income At Will

In the case of Drygala v Pauli, the Ontario Court of Appeal unanimously agreed with the statement that:

“… (T)here is no need to find a specific intent to evade child support obligations before income can be imputed.”

Which may be interpreted practically by Family Court Justices to mean that they are now empowered to impute at will, setting support levels at whatever they please despite the facts.

Warning to Men: Your Life As You Know It Is At Risk


Why even bother to consider your moving to and living in Canada?

“In Canada, nearly 42 percent of first marriages (formal not including marriage-like) end in divorce.” The odds against you are high.

No Escape Once ‘Tagged’ – Canada has obtained international reciprocal agreements with countries around the world. You may be hunted down like an international criminal.


Practical Advice to Men: Makes No Sense to Start Canadian Family

In 1997, the Liberal Leadership of Canada desired to modify behavior whereby it makes no practical sense for men to have a “meaningful relationship” (3 months or more) with a woman or to be in a marriage in Canada, or to start a family in Canada.


Paternity Protection in Full: 

If you are already in Canada, or if you are just arriving, and destined to stay, the very next act you must do to protect yourself is to immediately go to a clinic and get a vasectomy so that you can not possibly make the mistake of accidentally getting a woman in Canada pregnant.

And as a family court judge has said in his publication, “STAY OUT!”


Canada’s Children and Society At Increasing Risk

Generational Decline

If Canada’s policy makers and legislators were to comprehend the far-reaching consequences of Canada’s Family Laws, there could be dramatic changes resulting in better psychological outcomes and balanced development not only for the children of today but for subsequent generations of Canadians.

Longitudinal child psychology studies show damage can be cyclically repeated, into following generations, including, increased risk of predilection for violence and a life of crime; per Dr. P. Millar, Canadian contributing author, 2009, in The Development of Persistent Criminality.

Sadly, the unforeseen consequences of the laws and judicial decisions prevail over the psychological development of the hearts and minds of Canadian children for yet another generation.

There is a better way to ensure more of Canada’s youth grows into well-balanced, fully-functional adults and parents. This is explained by experts, laymen, and professionals.



Canadian Governments Reject Positive Alternatives in Family Laws

Life is not a euphoric fantasy, it’s an accident.

When an accident happens, why send in the ambulances packed with lawyers instead of physicians? – That’s what Canada does.

We see families in front of lawyers and in court instead of families and their members in counseling where that counselling consisting of a “triage” of experts (money managers, family psychologists, psychiatrists for PTSD).

Some family law practioners in Canada have recognized this and published their recommendations of a “triage” approach, and, to stay out of court.

Who files more for divorce? – Women not Men

And if you were given the same incentives, you would too. Therein lies the problem.

In spite of all the facts and professional advice to the contrary, governments in Canada have shown themselves to be stuck in their ideology and expediency of separating fathers from their children while applying coercion and incarceration instead of availing themselves of modern methods of persuasion and education.


A Just Society? Or Segregated?

Every Paradise Has Its Purgatory – And Canada is no exception.

This situation in Canada is not surprising given that most, if not all, of those making the rules and dispensing the justice have no personal or palpable experience with the effects of those laws.

What if their family relatives were forced to live on a $550 per month pension as separated fathers do?

Some may be tempted to call this inadvertence or ineptitude, but these legislators are not dumb nor incapable.

More likely, this situation can be likened to Abraham Lincoln’s appointing Andrew Johnson as his policy and practices maker when it came to the opportunity of integrating the nearly 4 million African-Americans (then called Negros) into American society after the U.S. Civil War.

It became widely known later and again today how poorly Johnson missed his moment in history. For a better understanding of the similarities of how two federal governments decided to create and then treat two classes of their society, America its Negros and Canada its divorced men, read Annette Gordon-Reed’s “Andrew Johnson.”

Annette Gordon-Reed is a professor and a lawyer, and according to her, Johnson retarded his society by 100 years. See her book here.
