With yet another shocking and tragic murder in Saskatchewan, this time a mother of two, we feel it necessary to again address the practice of child custody arrangements in Saskatchewan
During what was reported to be a routine custody handover in Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan, while their children were nearby, Stacey Lewis’s ex-husband allegedly shot and killed her. While there has been nothing in the media regarding their relationship, we cannot help but wonder if there was previous domestic violence. This, again, begs the questions posed in our last newsletter: should this man have had access to his children? Could this murder have been prevented if Stacey Lewis did not have to have contact with her ex-husband? Why is the history of the perpetrator of violence not being taking into consideration when making decisions on custody?
