Judge Crabtree noted in the report that accompanied his conclusion, that from the outset of the Ministry’s involvement with the Bayne children, the parents were devoted to having access to their children and dedicated to asking for as much time as possible. He noted that they had applied several times for more time than the Ministry wanted to provide and they continued to pressure for more time and Crabtree saw this as a positive indicator. However, it also strained relations with Ministry personnel as he perceived it. (Now whose fault is that?)
Judge Crabtree gave indication that he understood the parents’ reluctance to be involved in a parental capacity assessment by the Ministry because he could appreciate that parents might feel this was an admission of guilt for an abuse alleged against them already. Even Judge Crabtree could discern and then write in his report that the relationship between the Baynes and the social workers had deteriorated so much that there was no longer trust, and communication was eroded. Neither party wanted any longer to deal with the other.
Then two clauses summed up the Judge’s conclusion, leaving the Baynes where they are today.
Conclusion – Stage Two
 In the circumstances of this case I conclude that an order pursuant to s. 41(1)(c) for a period of 3 months is warranted.
 In the event that further directions are required the matter should be set down before me through the Judicial Case Manager at the Chilliwack Courthouse.
So, June 2, 2011 was the end of the three months order term. The new baby’s case was subsumed through later court appearances, in the same file as the three siblings. The file was transferred from the Hope MCFD office to new case workers in Surrey. The Baynes have participated in all the extensive tests required by the MCFD. Reports from these tests will determine the next steps.
