Canadian authorities still not dealing with Lev Tahor convincingly

The children's services have brought the issue to the forefront again:
Child welfare authorities opened new protection proceedings involving the Lev Tahor religious sect this week, but with members of the community on the move again, an Ontario court judge had a hard time Thursday making orders on the cases.

“I cannot make orders about kids that are not in the jurisdiction. It’s as simple as that,” said Justice Lucy Glenn.

Glenn, who heard the new cases Thursday, learned that at least one of the more than dozen children involved travelled to Guatemala the day after a worker Tuesday tried to notify his parents of the proceedings. The boy’s brother, also subject to the protection proceedings, was already in Guatemala before child protection workers arrived, court heard Thursday.
I don't think the children's services are doing a convincing job either, if they couldn't make an effort to ask airports and seaports to keep an eye out for cult families trying to escape.
Lev Tahor, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect that has made enemies in Israel and abroad for their anti-Zionist views, has been nomadic since late last year when child welfare authorities in Quebec began protection proceedings in that province. [...]
There's something odd about this part, which isn't entirely true. They didn't seem to make enemies in Canada for that reason; the authorities allowed Shlomo Helbrans to enter based on his testimony he was being "persecuted". When in reality, he should be condemned for how he's running his cult and ill-treatment of the children part of it.
Most of the parents, including some that are absent, are represented by Toronto immigration lawyer Guidy Mamann. Mamaan has in turn hired London lawyer Marnelle Dragila to speak to the child-protection issues.

Dragila Thursday did not oppose Children’s Services’ proposals to have some of the children who are still in the country ordered into their grandmother’s care under the agency’s supervision. The grandmother’s own children are also subject of child protection proceedings, but those children left the country about one month ago, the woman told the court through a Hebrew interpreter.

The judge ordered the woman to surrender her own passport and those of any of the children under her care.
I think she'd better do it. I also think Mamann should surrender his law license.

The Globe and Mail recently reported that the cult is viewing Guatemala as a new place to litter. And alas, it does look like a lot of them are bolting for that questionably run country, which will make it more difficult to defeat them.
