Global TV – Bayne Family

This video is the second part of a 2-part series on the Bayne’s case made by Global TV (a Vancouver, B.C., Canada TV station). This video was aired on Global TV, May 20, 2008. Before this news was aired, the parents had a signed mediation agreement with the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) on May 16, 2008 obliging the return of the two older children to the parents under a supervision order.

After the news was aired, this agreement was unilaterally canceled by MCFD alleging a breach of trust by going public. All the Bayne children were removed shortly after they were returned. The mother lost her job because MCFD told her employer about the child protection concern. Due to the loss of income, they failed to pay the mortgage and lost their family home. The parents are now working as night janitors so that they could see their children during the day.
