A single Father went out for a few beers at a local bar while his 5 year old son was apparently asleep in his bed at home alone this week, and the story has made headlines everywhere.

The whole thing happened in the suburb of Orsainville in the northern section of Quebec City, and although parents are warned and told time and time again to never leave a child alone, it is quite surprising that once again we have a story of this sort to relate.

The child was seen by a police patrol car on the corner of boul. Henri-Bourrassa (a busy four lane artery) and rue Bouvreuils close to the bar in question, wearing only his underwear, at around 12:30 midnight on the night of July 14th.

Police waited at the residence with the child until 1:15 am when the father finally came home extremely inebriated, he was unable to talk clearly to police until quite a bit later. Once the officers had the address of the child’s mother, who lives elsewhere, the child was taken there and will stay with her until the Child Protection Agency decides what to do with the situation.

The father will most likely be charged with Child Abandonment and has agreed to appear in court on the 19th of November to face criminal charges. He will not be allowed to have the child in his possession until the case is heard.

According to the CPA these things happen quite frequently where drugs or alcohol are involved but, never as severe as this particular case which is why it has become a headline story.

The youngest a child can stay alone in a home is 12 yrs old and even then a neighbour or guardian has to be designated in case of any emergency.
