My GPS weblog covered in 6 parts the momentous litigation between a mother known as J.P. versus the B.C. Ministry of Children and Family Development. She sued MCFD and won in July 2015.  Hers was a case in which her children were removed from her and given into the care of her husband whom it was alleged had sexually abused them. Justice Paul Walker not only condemned the Ministry but awarded the custody of the children to their mother. Here follows my synopsized version of Judge Walker's 140-page judgement.

Additional to the 6 part analysis of Judge Walker's ruling, two GPS blog posts comment further to GPS: JUDGE WALKER'S DECISION AGAINST THE MINISTRY OF MCFD … News sources jumped on this story that Judge Paul Walker ruled that the Ministry failed to protect children from sexual abuse by their father,  and GPS: JUSTICE PAUL WALKER STUNNING JUDGEMENT concerns the shock waves caused by the ruling.

As stunning and scathing as it was, the B.C. government has appealed the judgement. It also assigned Bob Plecas to do an independent review. He completed and published that report before year end again MCFD is judged wanting in some areas. Read Plecas' full report here.

The Appeal results are still pending and so is compensation for JP.


  1. Hello Jr. Williams. As you know, GPS typically stands for the Global Positioning System (GPS) which is a space-based navigation system that provides location and time information in all weather conditions, anywhere on or near the Earth where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites. I used GPS as an acronym for this Blog site to identify my faith approach to viewing the world and what is happening in it. GPS stood for God’s Positing System. Hence, the caption underneath the title, "In this global community I have a reliable GPS that delivers dependable information and confidence of arrival at my destination." The Blog was to express general topics but I became involved in advocacy for parents seeking to recover their children from the Ministry of Children, when it was perceived that injustice had been done one way or another. I simply didn’t change the title. It still worked for me.
