Mother outraged that daughter must go without so government can collect taxes
The federal government is under fire in B.C. for effectively cancelling child support payments to collect on taxes owed by deadbeat parents.
Even B.C.'s Attorney General Wally Oppal has concerns about the process and suggests the welfare of children must be considered.
"I was so upset," Victoria mother Tracy Davidson told CBC News. "I thought it was ridiculous that the government would take the money that the kids need."
