FASD & the Justice System

KFL (Re) (1992), 99 Sask R 268 (Grotsky J.):  

Order for permanent committal of child into care – mother with FAS – functionally illiterate, cannot cook or tell time, concerns about emotional ability to care for and nurture child – concerns about her own hygiene and nutrition – not a stable home lifestyle – lacks abilty to make meaningful plans for child – mother is not and will not ever be able to assume total responsibility for child – child into care.
