Commentary by the Ottawa Mens Centre
Julie Bishop is all to willing to negotiate
directly with China but refuses to even talk to Canad about the Ontario
Incarceration of a four year old Australian child citizen by the well known
Corrupt and Criminal organization, the Children's Aid Societies of Ontario , the
Ottawa Branch called "The Children's Aid Society of Ottawa.
In that case, a CAS lawyer, Marguerite Isobel
Lewis personally fabricated evidence to NOT return the child to the father who
was the child's full time parent until a scum bag lawyer by the name of Robie
Stewart Loomer made false unfounded allegations to the Ottawa Police and the
Court with allegations that did not exist and never existed.
In that case a Judge Monique Metivier issued an
order for custody without a hearing, without notice, without any due process to
cover up contempt of court by the CAS lawyer Marguerite Isobel Lewis.
Julia Bishop is applying a gender lens. An
attractive female is far more politically correct that a four year old innocent
Australian child citizen or his male father.
If you are an Australian overseas, Julia Bishop is
one minister who cannot be counted on.
Shame Julia Bishop and DEFAT Australia.
