Their are many parents being falsely accused of child abuse or shaking baby's syndrome this is happening way to much in BC and what happneed to the mother in the story was unconsciable and the child protection agencies are never accountable the mother loses her house her job her child and the outcome she was never charged and the allegations were baseless and what happens to children is really sad some die or are seriously damaged in foster care. Shame on child protection workers while you are falsely accusing the parents of child abuse those children wouldn't be so damaged and this is why there needs to be a review of they way workers investigate child protection concerns prior to removing any child because other wise you are placing that child at risk. I would also like to say with respect to visits automatically social workers try and keep visits to 1 to 2 hours per week and lesson the bond between child and parent and you have to go through 2 to for years of court hell when you are wrongfully accused of child abuse such as shaken baby syndrome most parents just are grateful to get thier children back but child protection services caused your child harm the must be liable to the parent but the problem child protection agencies never are and parent just take this abuse from them and that is just sad so many falsely accused like the mother in this story and are left…

Herder Memorial Trophy 2016 March 18, 2016

The Telegram’s connection to the Herder goes back to the very beginning. As former Telegram publisher Stephen R. Herder wrote in May 1980, “There were seven Herder brothers, sons of W.J. Herder who started The Evening Telegram in 1879. All seven were hockey ‘stars’ (if you don’t mind my saying so), though the only one I really remember was my own father, Ralph, who taught me to skate on Rennies River in St. John’s in the mid-1930s.
“The Herder Memorial Trophy is in memory of (in order of age) Arthur, William, Douglas, Augustus and Hubert Herder,” casualties of the First World War.
