Grandparents' Rights Bill Re-introduced
HALIFAX, NS – Today, Progressive Conservative Caucus Chair Keith Bain re-introduced the Grandparents’ Rights Bill which puts the best interests of a child at the centre of any case of marital breakdown.
“I think we can all agree that the relationship between grandchild and grandparent benefits the family unit but the NDP are doing nothing to protect it,” said Bain. “If the safety and the well-being of the child aren’t at risk, then we should do everything we can to ensure that children’s access to grandparents is protected.”
The Progressive Conservative legislation prevents a person who has custody of a child from unreasonably preventing a grandparent from having access to their grandchild. Decisions about grandparents' access to their grandchildren would be decided by a court, based on the safety and well-being of the child.
“This Bill puts the best interest of the child above all else,” said Bain.
The PC Caucus has been working with grandparents’ right advocate Pauline Glenn to bring forward this legislation.
