This is outrageous!
Mother sues son she abandoned
B.C. woman, 71, seeks support from children under archaic statute

The Edmonton Journal
When Ken Anderson was just 15, his mother, Shirley, made it clear: She didn’t want him anymore.
Ken’s father, a long-haul trucker, had been transferred from Osoyoos, B.C., to the province’s Kootenay region. Although their marriage was rocky, Shirley followed, taking her second-youngest son, Darryl, with her.
Ken was left behind.
Ken had plenty of time to think about it as he wiped bug splatter off car windshields and pumped gas, lucky to pick up some shifts at the local gas station to make a buck….
The way he sees it, he never really had a mother.
On Aug. 3 and 4, Ken, now 46, will face off in B.C. Supreme Court against the woman who gave birth to him.
Shirley Anderson, now 71, is suing Ken and four of his five siblings for parental support. The case dragged on for years, but the August hearing should complete it….

No, Gord, Glenn Sacks and Ned Holstein were not on the list I Bcc’d. However, I see that you sent copies to them, so I won’t bother them.
Thanks for passing the item on.

Greetings from the other side of the big pond.
Yep. Just another sicko making money from a system designed to help her commit a criminal act and then profit from it.

How did you guys happen to miss charging this woman with child abandonment? Now come on, this is the part where you tell me it was in the children’s best interest: right?
Or are the rules different if it’s a boy-child?
Your maintenance enforcement goons would have chased the father to hell and back for the good of the children, right? Smells like another political desision.
