  • Trivia

    • Goof: The events in this episode are more consistent with the American justice system than the Canadian justice system. For a mother of two young children with a drug addiction caused by an accident which severely injured her and her children and caused the death of her husband to be sentenced to 8 years for the armed robbery of a pharmacy because she needed her drugs would be considered very harsh within the Canadian justice system. Also, she has been clean for the past 4 of the 5 years since she has last seen her daughters. This makes her unlikely to re-offend, and not dangerous to her children. These mitigating circumstances make it unlikely that the courts would have severed her parental rights to allow the children to be legally adopted, and also very unlikely that she would not have known about it.
