Your 12 year old daughter jumped from a moving car to escape after you punched her in the face. She has sworn she would rather die than return to your care. While staff at the hospital where she is currently being treated remain concerned for her safety the Social Services case worker assigned to the file has decided that your apology mitigates any fears of future abuse.
What happens to you and your daughter next?
Nothing thank God, for you and I this is nothing more than an uncomfortable “what if”.
In the real world, the Girl, her Father and the Case Worker are Muslim and this is not a hypothetical scenario. It is happening now, in a western Canadian province.
