Kids taken from dad because of his weight

Hello everyone.

In Ottawa, Canada, child services have taken away two kids from their father. 


Because he is overweight. 

The man (name protected) is trying to appeal an action made by the state to take his children.

The kids have been in foster care for the past year because of problems with their mother.  They did not place them with their father either, because he had legal problems as well in the past.

However, he has been working to earn the right to have his children back. However, the courts won't comply and the man believes his obesity is to blame. 

Do you think weight should be a factor in determining parental fitness?
