Guardianship law
With regard to tbe an.eendn.eMt of
Tbe Infant,. Guardianship Law <eo he
taken up at the coming session ol tha
Provincial government, lollowing is a
resolution which has been torwarieU
t>y some ol the women's organizations
of Vancouver asking that it be ea-
dorBed by all the women's organizations of Revelstoke:
Tbat we do urge our Provincial
government at the approaching session, to remove the present unjust
disabilities under which the British
Columbia mother sutlers in regard t»
thc guardianship of ber child; And
to further enact Buch laws as will
place both parents upon an equality
as to rights, powers, dutiw, and responsibilities in regard to their
minor children, And that we invite
otber organizations to join us aad
help us secure this tardy but just rt-
cognition of the natural right, of the
mother to share equally with the father in all that pertains to thoir children.
In connection with this resolution
they alsu sent the lollowing list of
principles wished to be embodied in
the now law:
1. The husband and wife living together are joint guardians of their
unmarried minor children with eq.ual
powers, rights and duties in respect
of the custody and control and of the
services an<i earning and of the management of the property of their said
unmarried minor children, with no
paran ount right to either parent in
respect of such matters aforesaid.
2. The husband and wife living
apart are entitled to the judgment of
the co irt as to their poweis, rights
and duties in respect of the custody
and control and of thc .services and
earnings and of the management of
the property of their unmarried, minor
children without any preference as
between said husband and wife, and
neither parent shall have any right
paramount to the other while adjudication is pending, the husband or
wife who actually is to have the custody and control of their unmarried
minor children and the sole right to
the custody and control and to the
services nn:'. earnings and to the management of the property of their children.
J. In case of the death of either the
husband or the wife the survivor
whether or not he or the remain unmarried succeeds to all powers, rights
and duties of the deceased in respect
of the custody and control and of tbe
services and earnings and of the management of the property of their unmarried minor children. The surviving husband or wife may by duly executed will, transfer any or all of his
or her powers, rights and duties in
respect of the custody and control, or
of the management of the property,
but not of the services and earnings
of their unmarried minor children to
amy fit nerson or persons.
4. The support of their unmarried
minor children is chargeable to both
parents jointly and severally upon the
property of the husband and upon the
property of the wife and in relation
thereto they may be sued either jointly or severally.
5. In respect ol the guardianship of
their unmarried minor children the
disabilities of a minor husband, if
anv, shall iu no case be greater than
those of a minor wife. Any provision
of law whatever, written or unwritten
to the contrary in any case notwithstanding
NOTE.—Above law does not interfere with the power of the courts to
take children and childrens property
away from a mother who is unfit. It
only says that she shall not lose
them because of being a mother instead of a father.
This was discussed at last general
meeting ol the Forum and it and tbe;
resolution were endorsed with tbe exception uf Clause 3, which lt was
consider.-.! ought to be amended to
provide f..r thc appointment of not,
less than two guardians in each case.
It wns also recommend^ that a
clause be inserted in this law, if pos-
Bible, that in cases where property:
was bequeathed to children, tbat Instead of its being t.eed up until they,
came of age, provision be made for
its being used during their childhood
(or their proper care and education
rrcessary to make them good citizens.
