frame v. Smith?

This is a case that took place in Canada in 1987. It went to the Supreme Court. Does anyone have any idea how it might have changed the way we act or go about business as a society??

    Frame v Smith paralells case law in the United States. It changed the way we do things in the sense that it impedes mobility

    An individual is no longer free to move to another part of the country due to a promotion or for better weather. The court can stop you from moving by not allowing you to take your kids with you.

    Frame v Smith is somewhat analogous to the old alienation of affection laws in the United States. But instead of alienating a spouse, it involves alienating a child from their parent, usually done by the other parent
