Tuesday, June 29, 1999, Ian Wilson, Calgary Sun
An article that misses. The shelter statistics released by the Alberta government and available at http://www.gov.ab.ca/acn/199808/6619.html. If you read through those: 22% of admissions are single women not in a relationship, and 15% are divorced and separated women not in a relationship. Some 37% of admissions are not fleeing a relationship. As well, more than 40% of women flowing through the shelters state that physical violence is not an issue. The so-called "battered women" shelters are supplying services much beyond the scope of "battered women", but seem to be pretending otherwise.

Set the clock on criminal charges
Tuesday, June 29, 1999, Edward L. Greenspan, National Post
While not particularly a parenting issues -- this deals with criminal law only -- the false allegations of sexual abuse so often found in family law matters, and so often the result of the professional brainwashing of children and adults and "recovered memories", should be considered in this context too.

Rock warned about opposition to plan to prohibit sex selection by parents
Monday, June 28, 1999, Paul McKeague, National Post
Health Minister and federal hypocrite Alan Rock just finds out that unrestricted abortion by women results in sex selection (women choosing boys). Of course, he has to be told that his position on stopping sex selection while supporting unreastricted is illogical, untenable and not supported by the women's movement.
Sex-selection debate has women's groups struggling

Hitting the Wall
June 1999, Nancy Updike, Mother Jones Magazine
New Zealand data continues to confirm 1980 studies that wives hit their husbands at least as often as husbands hit their wives. As well, confirms what any sensible person can figure out -- that violent relationships generally involve two violent partners. When we deal with the reality, maybe society can find ways to offer real support. Important article discussing the de-politicization of this aspect of science.

Complaint against The Star upheld
Monday, June 21, 1999, Toronto Star
Release from the Ontario Press Council decision against the Toronto Star. Not disclosed is that this is a complaint against "statistics" published in an article from Michelle Landsberg, where an official of the Department of Justice, a Mr. Glenn Rivard, formerly of the Child Support group (but not at the time of the article) supposedly communicated the "fact" that when men asked for custody they got sole custody 22% of the time and joint custody 22% of the time...and 44% was really more than 50%. The Star's subsequent examination revealed that Mr. Rivard gave only an opinion....the studies of the Department of Justice indicated that something more in the range of 6% got sole custody and 32% got joint custody of some sort in case of dispute.

Distorted picture continues to be the case at Statistics Canada, but it does consistently show that parents are the leading cause.
