Winnipeg mom investigated by child services for letting her kids play in their backyard

StaffRebel Columnist

No wonder we're turning into a bunch of spineless pansies.

Jacqui Kendrick, a stay-at-home mom, says that she was reported to and investigated by Child and Family Services for letting her kids play outside in her backyard.

She says that Child Services unexpectedly showed up in April after they received a complaint that her children were unsupervised.

“The CFS worker was asking me about if we’ve ever dealt with CFS before, what my childhood was like, how I punish my children,” Kendrick said. “She had to look to see where my kid slept. She had to see if we had enough food in the house.”

Kendrick's children are ages two, five and 10. She told National Post that she often lets them play in her fenced off backyard.

When she's not watching them from he living room window, her oldest child takes care of her siblings.

“My 10-year-old is very responsible. We’ve taught the older ones already the whole stranger danger, and they know what to do,” she said.

How insane and embarrassing.

Years ago when my sons were little a neighbor called the police stating that my twins were playing with knives outside. The officer came to the door and was floored to see that the knives were actually a plastic army play set from the dollar store that they were playing with along with the shovels to dig out dirt in the garden to make a bunker. He left shaking his head because his time was wasted by an idiot neighbor. Now as teenagers, one of my sons is a Master Corporal in Cadets and shoots heavy duty pellet guns at empty cans in the backyard for practice. He may be going to Ottawa for three weeks in marksmanship this summer if he gets his first choice approved that he put on the paperwork. Some days when he’s practicing I think the cops will show up again, but so far so good.

Funny though, I heard something popping off at a neighbor’s with little kids down the street just last week and heard the dad rant off “fuck, fuck, fuuuuuuuuuuck!”, then heard a bang and a really loud slam! I looked out my garage and all I thought was that he must be having a bad day.

Yet, the totalitarian government manipulates our children with bad policing called indoctrination all through school which is abusive to children and families and they are getting away with it.

“Child services does not have the right to come into your home, unless they have a court order. "

Not quite, JEREMY ILLIAMSON, at least not n Ontario.

Subsection 40(7) of Ontario’s Child and Family Services Act states:
A child protection worker who believes on reasonable and probable grounds that,
(a) a child is in need of protection; and
(b) there would be a substantial risk to the child’s health or safety during the time necessary to bring the matter on for a hearing under subsection 47 (1) or obtain a warrant under subsection (2),may without a warrant bring the child to a place of safety

and this is followed up by Subsection 40 (11):
A child protection worker who believes on reasonable and probable grounds that a child referred to in subsection (7) is on any premises may without a warrant enter the premises, by force, if necessary, and search for and remove the child.

Under the tender mercies of the lefties our nation is becoming like Narnia: “Always winter but never Christmas”.

More and more like Nazi Germany where people reported on their neighbours anonymously. It was then left to the accused to protect themselves and in Nazi Germany, many accused people ended up in camps and I ain’t saying summer camps.
Yep, Canada is on a slippery slope and the abyss is getting ever closer.

WOW! I am amazed that I got over the 60 YO mark! As did David, we walked 1/4 mile to the bus in blizzard conditions, played (used) knives, axes and God forbid – were taught how to USE a gun at very young ages. (I was 7 when my Grandfather taught me to be an excellent shot and how to be safe with any weapon / tool). When 14 YO I and most of my buds were out dirt-biking in rattlesnake infested prairies’ coulees (never been bitten!) and when about 16 YO we were drag racing “home-built” hot-rods to speeds in excess of 150 mph! …and low & behold – we pretty much (some have been “taken” by disease, accident) all grew old by being farmers, loggers, riggers, blasters and truck drivers.
Surely is an amazing state of affairs! – for the most part we all governed ourselves without the aid of Child Services! Non of us have grown to be rapists, pedophiles or terrorists or SJWs who have gender confusion – truly amazing! lmfao

The state wants your children, not doubt about it. They are using Hitler’s tactics, and are trying to keep the business flowing for child services. I hope the new premier fires the lot of them.

When I was 5 years old we walked 1/2 mile to school every day unsupervised. Well before we were 10 we were riding our bikes to school and all around the local neighborhoods after school hours. Of course that was in the sixties, when we were taught some street sense, to look out for each other and to be responsible. All part of growing up?

this type of idiocy is not new with Manitoba’s failed and incompetent Child Services. They walk around enforcing themselves and their invasive techniques upon the innocent and the vulnerable while neglecting such things as the Indian Reservations and the Muslim community due to their fear of reprisals and their incompetence in dealing with the same. And then, when they take children into their custody they are placed into circumstances that are far worse than anything they were experiencing in their original homes. This so-called service needs a major overhaul before it should be allowed to enter anyone’s home and criticize their handling of their own children!

I highly doubt they would be sticking their noses into a refugee family like this.

According to progressives kids should be watched like hawks and not allowed to play games and learn and have fun, but they should read about all types of sex and experiment with vegetables.Nor are they responsible for committing crimes even when they are more than old enough to know what is right and wrong, but they are somehow mature enough to consent to sex at a younger age.

How long before our new nanny state takes your child away as soon as she/he is weaned. You will next see your child at the age of 16, a fully brainwashed Marxist.

Big Brother looms, close by.

They’re just shitbag goobermint workers. Just lie to them next time.

“what are you talking about?” “no I didn’t.” “are you lying about this so you can get a raise?”

If the big fat stupid goobermint has no video, just like to them and then tell them to get lost.

Is this why progressives are so sour about everything and despise anyone else getting enjoyment out of life? Their parents stopped them from being kids and having fun when they were young, so no one else can enjoy themselves. YEESH!

Something you need to know, Child services does not have the right to come into your home, unless they have a court order.
You are not obligated to show them anything, and you do not have to answer any questions, but you should be polite, as they tend to deal with people who are trying to hide something, and being an arrogant twit just gets their fur up.
