Can’t believe this person isn’t getting jail time. :mad:

When I saw this was a Canadian case, a big ooooohhhhhh crept through my mind.

During that time, she won’t be able to work in a daycare, or have any kind of employment where she’d be in contact with children.

I guess this is the most important thing. :shrug:

I pray the child makes a full recovery.

I am honestly not surprised in the least. In Canada, infanticide (as long as it’s committed by the mother) has a maximum penalty of five years and is not considered murder, and often carries no jail-time at all. When it comes to the Canadian government, the welfare of children appears to be at the bottom of the priorities list.
