A Quebec father who was taken to court by his 12-year-old daughter after he grounded her in June 2008 has lost his appeal.
Quebec Superior Court rejected the Gatineau father's appeal of a lower court ruling that said his punishment was too severe for the wrongs he said his daughter committed.
The father is "flabbergasted," his lawyer Kim Beaudoin told CBC News.
I think that the Government of Canada should reassert parental rights in light of this case.
This is absolutely ridiculous.
Grounding a girl and stopping her from going on a field trip, no matter how special is a perfectly appropriate punishment for posting inappropriate pictures online.
A child should not have the option of going to court because his parents can't get their act together and agree on proper discipline.
