Stanford sociologist Michael Rosenfeld points out that there is no way to test definitively whether children of divorced parents were already more likely to experience such outcomes. And as Stephanie Coontz, a historian and the author of “Marriage, a History,” explains, what’s most critical is the high-conflict environment that kids grew up in before their parents separated.

The historic changes to the Juvenile Justice law were passed by Parliament today. One key amendment is that now the Juvenile Justice Board can decide whether juveniles in 16 to 18 age group should be tried as adults in cases of heinous crimes. On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: what does this mean for the idea of justice? And whether this law has been pushed by "mob pressure", as some child rights activists are saying?

A question was posed online about the circumstances surrounding the absence of barrister & solicitor, Robert Lee, who had initiated and was handling the Class Action Child Welfare Suit. An explanation was published by a reporter on the Edmonton Journal Facebook page on November 10, 2015, but later a corrected version was issued. Apparently, perception of events had been previously misunderstood and are now better clarified:
Mark SmithWhy was lawyer Lee removed from the case by the courts in 2009?

Edmonton Journal - Paula SimonsAh, I had to glide over that part for reasons of space in the paper. (I've just made a slight change to the online version to provide more context.) The short version? Lee didn't have a lot of experience with class action law suits, which were relatively new in Alberta, so he brought it other lawyers to work with him. They developed what you might politely call irreconcilable difference. Justice Denny Thomas reassigned the case to an Ontario firm that specialized in class action lawsuits and had a reputation for handling them well.

Edmonton Journal - Paula SimonsI've heard this afternoon from Robert Lee, who didn't feel that my answer was fair to him. So let me post part of his letter to me here for context about his disagreement with his original co-counsels: "The Court records will show that the reason why I was removed was because the representative plaintiffs and I developed a difference in opinion with Mr. Docken and Mr. Klein.
Mr. Klein and Mr. Docken wanted to try to settle the case over the objections of the representative plaintiffs. Despite the representative plaintiffs wanting me to continue on the case, the Judge removed me from the case, rather than Mr. Klein and Mr. Docken. About 4 days later the representative plaintiffs fired Mr. Klein and Mr. Docken. Justice Thomas was told that Mr. Docken and Mr. Klein were fired, but Mr, Klein and Mr. Docken continued to act on behalf of the representative plaintiffs after they were fired.
Since I was removed, I assisted the representative plaintiffs to find new lawyers. I put the representative plaintiffs in touch with Jeffrey Poole and the Mckenzie Lake firm, who agreed to work with me and take over the case. It took two Appeals to the Court of Appeal by the representative plaintiffs and about another 6 to 9 months, but eventually the Representative Plaintiffs were able to go to Court and get Mr. Docken and Mr. Klein removed from the case and to have the McKenzie Lake firm take over the file.
Therefore, I believe that your public posting puts me in an unfavourable light and is not accurate. The clients fired Mr. Docken and Mr. Klein. Justice Thomas did not fire them."
