Court of Appeal hears our request

Feb 3, 2003

The Court of Appeal has heard our request to affirm the right of all Quebec women to seize and collect their alimony and child support orders. The Provincial Government opposed our request, arguing that the Minister of Revenue of Quebec should be the only ones who act against defaulting debtors. We responded that not only does the Government want to disenfranchise women and treat them as incapable of claiming their own rights, but also that at the glacial speed at which the Government acts to collect alimony and child support, women and children are suffering needlessly. We consider the Minister of Revenue’s attitude toward women to be unacceptably paternalistic and infantilizing. We hope the Court of Appeal will agree!
