The Minister of Social Services applied for an order that Eli and Jerry were children in need of protection. If found to be so, the Minister sought to have the children permanently committed to the Minister’s care.

The Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench, Family Law Division, in a decision reported at 319 Sask.R. 110, held that the children were in need of protection and ordered that they be committed to the Minister’s care. The appellants appealed.

The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal.
