To Whom This  May  Concern,                                                                                                   March 22,  2000

 My name is Randall S. Turgeon, and I was a close friend of Darrin White's.  I feel sad that he had to go to extreme measures to express his disillusion of a system that treats parents with inequality when it comes to parenting rights. I am appalled at the inhumane acts of our justice system, (or injustice system).

  I, too, have been under a great deal of stress as a result of the lack of the compassion of our Canadian government in dealing with the abduction of my son, Christopher Leo Turgeon. He was abducted on December 18th 1999 by Lilia Martinez Vazquez. He was taken  to Mexico under false pretences, and now the Canadian government wants to negotiate, in way of the Haque Convention, to have my son returned. I feel there is no reason for negotiation since he was, in fact, kidnapped.

 I believe the Canadian government should demand his immediate return before there is any further psychological damage to my son. My understanding of situations similar to mine, is that usually the abductor tells the child that the other parent is dead or doesn't want anything to do with them. I feel the government is taking a cowardly approach as to how they deal with these circumstances. Children should no longer be used as pawns as they are in our court systems. We are dealing with human lives, not commodities....

 My father and  many other Canadians fought for the human rights of all citizens in the First, Second and the Korean War. Now these very rights are being denied to our own children by the Canadian government. I feel that we, as citizens, should re-evaluate government policies. It is very clear  with the death of my friend that there is an inequality of rights where fathers especially, are concerned.

  I have noticed , in talking to others of my situation, that the public seems to think that my son is in no danger since it was his own mother that abducted him. I totally disagree with this because, as stated previously, the psychological damage being caused could be irreversible. This is clear case of abuse by a parent.

 As stated by the then Honorable Ujjal Dosanjh, in the "Frontlines" Victim's Services Division Report, issue #1, dated March 1996, " the govenment is listening, and the Ministry of Attorney General and it's agencies are acting." This refers to victims of crime and their families.  I would like to know , if the Attorney General office is listening to the concerns of the victims, such as myself, and why I was  told by Gordon McPherson that  this "is a Federal matter." When in fact our Provincial government claims to look after the interests of our children and victims of crime. I have been dealing with Alison Burnett of the Attorney General's office, who is in charge of the Hague Convention dealing with International Child Abduction. I was told by her that I would need a lawyer here and one in Mexio in regards to my son's abduction. Now  I have been told by the Provincial legal aid system that I'm not entitled to legal assistance due to the fact I make too much money on Employment Insurance to qualify! I feel the Canadian government is putting their responsibility on myself when in fact they should be defending my son. The onus should not fall on the victims of the crime to supply legal counsel..this is "another clear cut case of victims being re-victimized by the justice system." Darrin  also felt victimized.

 How many children have to lose their rights to have both parents? Our justice system , as it stands, creates the myth of "deadbeat dads"through the inadequacy of our court systems to deal fairly with all concerned. " I divorced my wife, not my child".  My question is "Why do parents have to pay to have the rights to parent their own children?"

 I believe it's time the government stands behind it's policy of looking after  Children's rights instead of taking those very rights away from them.

 Your sincerely,

 R. S. Turgeon
