OTTAWA, Dec 10 (LSN) A joint Senate and House parliamentary committee set up to review Canada’s Divorce Act made recommendations to government yesterday. While most of the suggestions are positive certain suggestions have alarmed pro-family advocates. One positive suggestion asks the government to change the term “custody and access” to “shared parenting.” Also, striking at the heart of the problem of unfair shared parenting arrangements, the committee urged that there be no bias in determining shared parenting arrangements due to the sex of the parent (much to the chagrin of radical feminists). Further, the committee asks for the criminal code to be strengthened to forcefully discourage false accusations of abuse which are characteristic of many child custody cases. Pro-family advocates are concerned, however, with recommendation 47 in the “For the Sake of the Children” report. The recommendation reads “This Committee recommends that sexual orientation not be considered a negative factor in the disposition of shared parenting decisions.” The section of the report explaining this recommendation indicates that the group was only presented with information in this regard by a gay and lesbian activist group known as gale (Equality for Gays and Lesbians Everywhere).
