Community vigil held to bring closure for family of Winnipeg newborn found in garbage bin – Winnipeg

Community members are remembering and honoring a newborn baby baby who was found dead in a Winnipeg trash can last month.

The newborn baby, known as Baby Moar, was the subject of a vigil Wednesday night after it was reported that his mother, Jeanene Rosa Moar, 31, was dealing with manslaughter allegation in connection with her death.

The vigil was held in the back alley of Boyd Avenue, where the murder was discovered on May 3.

Jackeline Black, one of the organizers of the event, said she was shocked to learn this was happening in her own neighbourhood.

“The baby was placed in my yard,” Black told Global News.

Black said she hopes this will help the family heal and possibly give them some closure.

“We are very sorry for their loss. I hope (the vigil) will help them end – help them move on.

“This is an innocent baby, sadly this is the path she has to go.

“I’m just glad everyone has come together and has all the people who care enough to support this family – wherever they are.”

In addition to manslaughter, the baby’s mother also faces charges of hiding the child’s body.

Kristen Kramar, an antivirus expert at the University of Calgary (formerly the University of Winnipeg) told 680 CJOB Wednesday that this type of incident is not common in Canada.

“We differ from the US in that we have socialized health care and women have access to pregnancy and childbirth services and so on,” said Kramar, a sociology professor.

“We tend not to have the kinds of social conditions that cause the spread of the virus to increase. That said, once or twice a year across Canada, it’s a tragedy when it happens, but it’s certainly not all that common. ”

Kramar said that it is more likely that the case has not been reported, as the information that has been made public so far appears to point to a murder charge.

“In terms of it, it seems to me that it’s completely within the pesticide supply,” she said.

“These are very, very rare cases… which I think is why the attorneys and Crown generally don’t have a lot of experience using the Penal Code, but (infanticide) provision that has existed in the past. Canadian law since 1948.”
