lol No, that's not happening... No fucking way...



In the OP case, wasn't just the kid, but the mother and a bunch of doctors and such specialists apparently weighing in on the decision in kid's favor...
I think it should be primarily the child's, but a 14 year isn't mature enough to make that decision, even if the parents support it.

British Columbia is my ex-home province in Canada. I know a bit about the system there, though, not that much. From what I do understand, they often go to extremes there, as far as authorities inserting themselves inside families to "protect" kids... Kid so much as telling a teacher at school her parent smacked her at home or something can result in call to the proper agency, investigation, them showing up at your home, etc. I know a guy who told me once his daughter, at 13, pretty much threatened him and his wife with that shit lol
THat's nothing to brag about. Your courts are a mess. Did the 13 year old learn that in school? Bye Bye the state owns you now.
