Child-interest
Free text Both authors are professors at McGill University. They comment on current rules applied by Canadian legislation relating to suitability of parents to adopt which, in their view have less to do with upholding the "best interests of the child" and more to do with maintaining the status quo, without taking into consideration the changes that have occured in the structure of most families in our western societies, as well as saving public money by reducing costs of preparation for adoption and post-adoption support
