    WHY is she free? She dosed 4 young children and she is out and about now? She did 4 years in jail for poisoning 4 babies?


    "Allen ran a home daycare in Kitchener, Ont., from 2009 to 2011 and was sentenced to six years in prison after being convicted in 2013 of four counts of administering a noxious substance to cause bodily harm."

    Lengthy article. rbbm.
    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/kitche...rops-1.4219316

    The mother of an infant who was poisoned by a former Kitchener, Ont., daycare provider says she's worried Christine Allen might hurt another child now that she has been released from prison following a four-year term.

    In 2013, Allen pleaded guilty to using medicated eye drops to spike the juice of at least four children. One infant, identified as Baby M during the court proceedings, suffered brain damage
    "It's concerning that she's out," added the mother, who cannot be identified because of a publication ban. "It's disturbing. It's very disturbing and sickening. And to know she's out and able to do something again is scary."

    Allen ran an unlicensed daycare from a home in the Pioneer Park area of Kitchener from 2009 to 2011. She was accused of poisoning eight children and an adult.
    Allen admitted to poisoning Baby M numerous times during the first four months of life. Allen, a longtime friend of Baby M's mother, was at the hospital for the birth, and court documents showed that shortly after, the girl's grandmother noticed she seemed to be having trouble breathing.

    After Allen watched the baby while the mother took a shower, the baby again was lethargic and had trouble breathing. Allen accompanied the mom to the hospital and held the baby while the mom slept. Baby M frequently stopped breathing so had to be intubated.

    No babies died although one has brain damage.

    She didn't kill them.

    In 2013, Allen pleaded guilty to using medicated eye drops to spike the juice of at least four children. One infant, identified as Baby M during the court proceedings, suffered brain damage.
    ...
    In an agreed statement of facts, Allen admitted to feeding four children tetrahydrozoline, found in over-the-counter eye drops that can cause serious illness if ingested.

    Two of the children were wards in her daycare. Two other children were family friends.

    Police said the majority of the poisonings occurred between 2010 and 2013.

    She didn't kill them. She just poisoned them, routinely, for 3 or 4 years...

    I still think 4 years in jail is not long enough.

    I saw this on the news last night and was shocked she served so little time. I hope everyone in the area sees her picture!

    ^JMO but this doesn't sound like someone who is ready to be released.

    Also from that article:

    Is not permitted to purchase, possess or consume drugs other than prescribed medications taken as prescribed and over-the-counter drugs taken as recommended.

    Meet with a mental health team and participate in a treatment plan.

    OTC med!!!
    From cbc.ca link^-- TETRAHYDROZOLINE



    From http://www.medicinenet.com/tetrahydr...th/article.htm:
    GENERIC NAME: TETRAHYDROZOLINE - OPHTHALMIC (TEH-truh-hi-DROZE-oh-leen)
    BRAND NAME(S): Opti-Clear, Visine
    USES: Tetrahydrozoline is a decongestant used to relieve redness in the eyes caused by minor eye irritations (e.g., smog, swimming, dust, or smoke). It belongs to a class of drugs known as sympathomimetic amines. It works by temporarily narrowing the blood vessels in the eye.Some brands of tetrahydrozoline eye drops may contain lubricants. Lubricants help protect the eyes from more irritation and dryness.



    From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetryzoline
    Tetryzoline
    (INN;[1] also known as tetrahydrozoline), a derivative of imidazoline, is found in over-the-counter eye drops and nasal sprays. Other derivatives include naphazoline, oxymetazoline, and xylometazoline.

    Tetrahydrozoline is an alpha agonist and its main mechanism of action is the constriction of conjunctival blood vessels.[2] This serves to relieve the redness of the eye caused by minor ocular irritants.
    An urban legend suggests that tetrahydrozoline can cause violent diarrhea if administered orally, such as by putting a few drops of Visine in an unsuspecting person's beverage. However, the actual results of the prank may be worse, varying from severe nausea and vomiting to seizures or a coma. Diarrhea is not a side effect.[


    Yikes. Poor babies.

    I wish the terms of release also included a prohibition of her working in food service. What's to stop her from working in a fast food restaurant and poisoning someone's Happy Meal?

    I sadly know two mothers who's children were affected.
    Very sad day. She really needs to be behind bars or a mental facility. Imo.

    nothing but jail will stop her IMO - she's going to find a way to hurt more unsuspecting people ... it won't be as easy for her (having vulnerable kids in her care) but she'll find a way JMO
