    Parents of the year….
    Take the child away and place in a loving home that does not have addicts as parents.
    Strip them of their parental rights.

    Once again the parents aren’t married so that means Leanne is sucking off the system, so that means we the taxpayers are supporting another pair of drug addicts.

    Easy solution here – put the so-called parents in jail FOREVER, and find loving adoptive parents for the baby. This whole thing that Children/Youth promotes about “keeping the family together” is total BS. I also believe in mandatory sterilization in cases like this. They should never be given a chance to bring more children into the world.
