Boy was 132 pounds at age 5; won’t re­turn to mother

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A Nova Sco­tia judge has ruled that a boy who was five years old and weighed 132 pounds when he was taken from his mother will not re­turn to her care, say­ing liv­ing with her is too haz­ardous to his health. Judge Robert Gre­gan says the child’s weight was a se­ri­ous health is­sue when he was taken into the care of Com­mu­nity Ser­vices in May 2015. A Nova Sco­tia Supreme Court de­ci­sion re­leased Mon­day says in his view the mother was in de­nial about the se­ri­ous­ness of his health sit­u­a­tion. Gre­gan notes the boy’s pe­di­a­tri­cian said he was at risk of se­ri­ously harm­ing his or­gans.
