Were these girls stolen by bogus doctors?? I think so.
The CPS System is so corrupt they are now hiring people who have bogus degrees to steal the children from their parents. IT is time to step up and fight this abusive, greedy and corrupt system. This is the second case of a bogus psychologist who has testified against parents in juvenile court and caused them to lose their children. The parents have to way to fight this system. We have to stop it.
Whitby man claimed to be psychologist

A Whitby man who claimed to be a doctor has pleaded guilty to falsely representing himself at a disciplinary hearing before the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
Carter, 63, claimed to have a PhD in psychology and has weighed in on Family Court cases for 15 years. He worked under contract for six years with the Durham Children’s Aid Society, which ended its relationship with him in 2009.
Carter is registered with the College as a psychological associate. Because his registration is based on his master’s degree in psychology, there are limitations on his practice and they prevent him from making independent diagnoses.
Durham police allege he falsely claimed to be a clinical psychologist while testifying in court and preparing parental assessments for agencies.
According to his CV, Carter earned his doctorate from Pacific Western University in Hawaii. However, the university was discredited in 2004 as a “diploma mill” and closed in 2006.
Parents and guardians who lost custody of children following Carter’s testimony include a mother, two fathers, and a grandfather who says he presented the College with several insurance claim forms where Carter identified himself as a clinical psychologist.
Tuesday’s hearing focused on the case of a Whitby man who, in 2008, lost a court fight to get temporary sole custody of his two young sons. The man said the woman had become abusive to the children.
One psychologist had told the court the mother had borderline personality disorder, one of the most difficult mental disorders to treat.
Carter was called for a second opinion and he ended up disputing the diagnosis.
On Tuesday, Carter pleaded guilty to misrepresenting himself as a doctor and to inappropriately diagnosing disorders in court testimony.
He was suspended from his private practice for three months — after that he will be supervised for one year.
In January 2010, Carter was charged by Durham Regional Police with fraud, perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with the case.
On Thursday he’ll be in court in Durham Region to face those charges.
