Canada: Unvaccinated father loses right to see his child

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“A Canadian father who has not been vaccinated against Covid has temporarily lost the right to see his 12-year-old child. A judge ruled his visits would not be in the child’s ‘best interest.’ It followed a request by the father to extend his visiting time during the holidays. The judgement is the first depriving a parent of access rights on immunisation grounds, a family law expert told Le Devoir newspaper. The judge’s decision, made at the end of last month in Quebec province, suspends the father’s visitation rights until February, unless he decides to get vaccinated. The mother, who opposed the father’s initial request to extend his visitation time, told the court she had recently discovered he was unvaccinated, using his social media posts to show he was opposed to vaccines.” (01/13/22)
