Children's Aid Societies causing thousands of parents to live in fear RIP Kody Rien

Monday, June 13, 2016 - CAS - Alfredine Linda Plourde - Beating the Drum for Justice for our Children

I am a mother, grandmother, and a Canadian Citizen I'm guilty of what many Canadians citizens are guilty of- the belief that the Child Protective Services, the Children's Aid Societies of Ontario - a systematic, bureaucratic, governmental organization - has the child’s best interest in mind. I'm guilty of ignoring and neglecting my duty as a mother, grandmother and a citizen of this country to educate myself with knowledge what this organization that commits atrocity after atrocity, hampers freedom throughout Canada that cause thousands of parents to live in fear and cause thousands dead throughout Canada. I hope for the love of God and for all innocent children that enough people unite and shout loud and clear. This will stop!

Kody Smart R.I.P.

July 26, 2015  

Kody Smart passed away today at age thirteen months. Death was declared by McMaster Children's Hospital on July 26 at 5:51 pm. Kody was the grandson of Chris York.

For years Chris York has actively opposed Niagara CAS, both to protect his own family from child removal and to help others similarly threatened. A few times he humiliated CAS with victories in court cases. Chris appears over a dozen times in the fixcas index. He was recorded (mp4) at a Queens Park rally on May 17, 2010. Some of the other links to Chris York: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7].

According to Chris the boy had a crushed skull, with brain injuries that overwhelmed the medical team. The damage is not what can be inflicted by a dog attack. Chris reported today that CAS responded to his pleas and removed the other grandchild from the home, but it remains with close relatives of the same grandparent.

Chris commented yesterday:

Chris York

Currently sitting at McMaster hospital. Grandson was airlifted due to head injury. Child is in intensive care as a result and status is critical. Child is 13 months old and this happens in the home of the kinship provider. The home where he is at the one specific kinship provider has a history of child abuse against his own child and badly beat his own child when the child was 6 months of age. FACS Niagara is aware of this yet placed 2 children in their care regardless. These same people are currently in the room with the grandchild in the intensive care unit and CAS does not see any reason to remove any children from their career this time. They are claiming the dog knocked the child over and he hit his head. The child is unresponsive to tests at this time. If this was any other parent CAS would remove the children (all of them) first and ask questions later. Looks like they are going into cover up and protect mode. Lawyer is being notified at this time. Will update when and if I can. FACS NIAGARA PAY CLOSE ATTENTION I'M COMING AFTER YOU WITH MY LAWYERS... YOU WILL PAY FOR NOT LISTENING AND ALL YOUR LIES IN COURT SO FAR.

Chris posted this musical tribute to YouTube, local copy (mp4).

According to Chris CAS placed two children in the home of a grandparent with a known history of child abuse. Fixcas has followed enough of these cases to report in advance what will happen. If there is no press, CAS will quietly bury its mistake. But in case of an uproar the hapless grandparent will be charged with a crime. The social worker will get off scot free, and can look forward to regular promotions. No policy manual says this, and no social worker has ever stated it. But actions speak louder than words. Displease a social worker and a member of your family could die.

Addendum: Friends held a vigil outside McMaster Children's Hospital on the evening of Kody's passing. Pat Hudak posted pictures: [1] [2] [3] [4]

 

Addendum: Tuesday, July 28. Chris has been in contact with Ontario's Provincial Child Advocate Irwin Elman. Elman, who read about the death on fixcas, intervened to get FACS Niagara to take the surviving grandchild from kinship care and into foster care. He also got FACS to agree to assume all of Kody's funeral costs. Elman plans to attend the funeral. FACS refuses to let Chris and his wife see the surviving girl. One of their reasons for denying contact is x-rays showing the girl has broken bones. The kinship grandfather has obtained legal counsel and is saying nothing about the matter.

Addendum: Three days later the press gets to the story, though without the children's aid and foster care connections. The story clarifies that Chris York is the stepgrandfather, Kody was descended from Chris's wife.


'What I want is justice for Kody'

Brett Smart will never forget his 13-month-old son Kody’s final moments.

“The worst part was when they decided to take him off life support, and I felt his last heartbeat with my own hand,” said Smart. “What I want is justice for Kody. I want the person who did this to Kody to face justice.”

Kody Smart died at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton Sunday. Niagara EMS and police responded to a home on Thorold Townline Rd. at 10:30 a.m. Saturday after a 9-1-1 call reported a child in medical distress.

Kody was at another person's home at the time.

Niagara EMS took Kody to the St. Catharines Hospital and transferred to Hamilton the same day.

“In the hospital, they went to weigh Kody and I had to leave the room,” Brett said. “He was just limp. His arms and legs just dropped down.

“When you have a kid, you expect them to be putting you in the ground. Now it is the complete opposite.”

Niagara Regional Police are tight-lipped about their investigation, which Const. Phil Gavin said is ongoing in conjunction with the coroner.

“From what I understand, the officers from the homicide department are working overtime on this,” Smart said. “They want to get to the bottom of this.”

Chris York, Brett’s stepfather, said the family is in the process of making funeral arrangements, but even that is difficult.

“We are still waiting because they haven’t released the remains yet,” York said. “The tentative date of the funeral was supposed to be Friday, but we found out they likely aren’t going to release the remains until then, so it would be next week sometime.”

Addendum: In two articles the Toronto Star mentions the CAS connection, while omitting the name of the child or accused grandfather. Father Brett Smart warned CAS that Kody could die from placement with his grandfather previously convicted of abuse. There is no hint of malice on the part of the social worker.

 

Baby dies in custody of man with history of abuse

The death of a 13-month-old baby is being investigated by Niagara Regional police and the coroner’s office.

Niagara Regional Police and the Chief Coroner’s Office are investigating the death of a 13-month-old baby who was in the custody of a man previously convicted of abusing a baby.

The local children’s aid society was aware of the man’s criminal record when it approved the custody arrangement in May, a court document shows.

The baby boy was airlifted to McMaster Children’s Hospital with a head injury on Saturday and died in hospital on Sunday, according to the document.

An affidavit filed with the Ontario Court of Justice by the Children’s Aid Society of the Niagara Region said the society was aware the baby’s paternal grandfather had been convicted of assaulting his son, the baby’s father, two decades earlier, when he was just 6 months old.

The affidavit, filed Wednesday, concerns a second grandchild that was previously in the grandfather’s custody. It notes that the man “has a serious child protection history dating back to 1995 which relates to events when he was approximately 18 years old.” The grandfather, now in his mid-30s, “was convicted of physically abusing (his son) when he was six months of age.”

The Star is not publishing any names from the court document to protect the living child.

The affidavit mentions that the grandfather’s “criminal history included several charges” between 1992 and 1999 and that he had been investigated by the society for drug use and verbal abuse of a previous partner. Those allegations were not verified, according to the affidavit.

In the document, the society explains that the second grandchild, a 19-month-old girl, was placed in the care of the grandfather, and his spouse shortly after she was born because he “was open and honest about his criminal history and was willing to complete the necessary documents in order for the society to complete the assessment.”

That child had “unexplained injuries” when she was examined last weekend at the children’s hospital, the document said.

According to the affidavit, the grandfather told police that the baby boy who died Sunday was knocked over by the family’s 2-year-old Labrador, dog and hit his head on the hardwood floor. The grandfather said the baby seemed fine and then went “limp and was making gagging noises.”

“As a father, you want to protect your child,” the baby’s distraught father, 20, told the Star. “You don’t expect to put your child in a casket.”

A Niagara children’s aid official said he was not able to discuss the case due to legal and privacy concerns.

However executive director Chris Steven said the case was troubling.

“The death of a child under any circumstances like that is a tragedy and a loss we’re all concerned about,” he said in a telephone interview Wednesday night.

He said “it certainly is not our general practice” and “it would be unusual” to place a child in the care of people convicted of child abuse.

“As for potential care-givers, those histories are checked by staff,” he said. “All of that information is shared, along with any plans or concerns in a court form prior to an order being made for the placement of that child.”

Irwin Elman, Ontario’s advocate for children and youth, has offered his support to the deceased baby’s father.

“We are doing our best within the limits of our current mandate to understand what happened. To say that what I have heard so far is troubling is a colossal understatement,” he said in a statement Wednesday. “We await the results of the police investigation. Our hearts and thoughts are with those who loved the little boy.”

Dad of Niagara baby who died begged that boy not be placed with grandfather

Young father of dead baby warned children's aid not to place his boy with grandfather convicted of child abuse.

The father whose 13-month-old baby died last weekend while in the care of a convicted child abuser, said he pleaded with children’s aid not to place his son with his grandfather.

“On the morning of the apprehension… I said flat-out: ‘If you place him with my dad, you’re most likely going to kill my son’,” the 20-year-old father said about the day his baby was taken away. “I know that man, and he was violent with me my entire life.”

As reported in the Star Thursday, a court document shows the Niagara children’s aid society knew the grandfather had physically abused his own infant son in 1995. (The grandfather was just a teenager at the time and is now in his mid-30s, according to an affidavit filed Wednesday by Niagara children’s aid in the Ontario Court of Justice.)

In May, Niagara children’s aid placed the baby in the care of the grandfather and his wife.

The baby was rushed to hospital with head injuries last Saturday and died Sunday.

Niagara Regional Police and the coroner are investigating.

The affidavit concerns a second grandchild, a 19-month-old girl with “unexplained historical injuries” previously in the grandfather’s care.

The Star is not publishing any names to protect the living child.

The bereaved young father told the Star his own injuries at the hands of his father 20 years ago, when he was an infant, put him in hospital for three weeks.

“It was extremely touch and go. For the first week, the doctors didn’t know if I was going to live because I had severe head trauma as well,” he said.

Although he never lived with his father again for any significant time, he lived with his paternal grandfather and his wife for about eight years and continued to see his father.

“I got hit with a belt, a shovel,” he said. “I thought it was just discipline.”

Efforts to reach the grandfather Thursday were unsuccessful.

According to the affidavit, the grandfather told police that the baby boy who died Sunday was knocked over by the family’s 2-year-old Labrador, dog and hit his head on the hardwood floor. The grandfather said the baby seemed fine and then went “limp and was making gagging noises.”

In the document, children’s aid explains that the second grandchild was placed in the grandfather’s care in March 2014, shortly after she was born, because he “was open and honest about his criminal history and was willing to complete the necessary documents in order for the society to complete the assessment.”

The baby’s death raises fresh questions in light of the Jeffrey Baldwin case.

The 5-year-old boy died of starvation in 2002 while in the care of his maternal grandparents who were later found to have been convicted of abusing their own children.

At the time of Jeffrey’s death, children’s aid workers had not been required to do background checks when they placed children with other family members. Since 2006, all potential caregivers, including extended family members and kin, are required to undergo extensive background checks for any previous criminal or child protection concerns.

But as the Niagara case shows, children’s aid workers continue to place children in the care of people with child abuse convictions, said NDP Children’s critic Monique Taylor.

“The fact that this child was placed in the custody of a known offender raises serious questions about oversight,” she said Thursday. “We urge the government to fully examine how such a terrible tragedy was allowed to occur and to take steps to prevent an incident like this from ever happening again in Ontario.”

Chris Steven, executive director of Family and Children’s Services Niagara, which includes children’s aid in the area, was not able to comment on the case due to legal and privacy concerns.

However, he said such placements are “not our general practice” and are “unusual.”

The Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies, which represents the province’s 46 societies, said circumstances have changed since the Baldwin case.

Although background checks are now required for all placements, there is also a new emphasis on keeping families together.

“There is a desire to maintain family bonds whenever possible,” said the association spokesperson Caroline Newton.

“That may have been a factor in trying to weigh risk and the best interest of the child,” added Newton, who said she did not know the details of the Niagara case.

Ontario Children’s Minister Tracy MacCharles expressed shock and sadness about the boy’s death.

“My heart goes out to the family and those touched by these devastating events,” she said in a statement. “Whenever a child dies, we have a responsibility to learn from what happened and take all necessary steps to prevent similar tragedies in the future.”

Update: Convicted child abuser goes on trial accused of killing his own grandson Posted: November 6, 2017 10:50:11 PM
Monday was the first day of trial in St. Catharines of a convicted child abuser, who is now accused of killing his grandson.

One year old Kody Smart died at McMaster Children’s hospital in July, 2015 after an incident at his grandfather’s home. In a 911 call played in court, Brian Matthews told the dispatcher a family dog jumped off the couch and knocked the boy over. After the fall, Matthews told paramedics Kody continued to play, but minutes later he became unresponsive.

Two paramedics who responded to the call that day were questioned in court. Both say when they got to the home, the boy was lying on the kitchen table, his body limp and unresponsive. Both also said that they don’t remember seeing any bruising on the boy.

One paramedic said she asked Matthews what had happened three times, because quote: “the injury didn’t really match the story.”

She said another paramedic onsite noticed one of the boy’s pupils was blown, a sign of trauma that she said did not match the ground level injury Matthews was describing. Kody died after two days in hospital.

Kody’s father says he pleaded for Children’s Aid not to send his only son to his own abusive father.

“I was immediately concerned, due to Brian’s prior history of abuse on me.” Brett Matthews, Kody’s father.

20 years earlier Matthews was convicted of abusing his son Brett, who was 6 months old at the time. Kody’s step grandfather says Children’s Aid made a mistake that can never be forgiven.

“The fact of the matter is, warning signs were there, they ignored the warning signs and they should be held accountable”

Matthew’s other son, Taylor also took the stand today and said they family never considered putting down any of their three dogs after the incident.
