The parents of a 5-year-old girl who was found dead last week at a home in the city of Brampton are concerned her parents are “wasting time” with a “poorly planned” funeral.
A video from a security camera captured a woman walking into the house in the early hours of April 16 and carrying the girl away.
“You are not going to put your heart and soul into something like this, it’s not worth it,” a voice says in the video.
“I’ve already spent a lot of time thinking about it.
You’re not going out to dinner tonight.
You’re not wearing a dress tonight.”
The video was released on the Internet by the family, who called for the death penalty for the woman and the family.
Brampton police said Friday the woman had a history of mental illness and that she was charged with aggravated assault.
Police have not released the identity of the woman or the family’s identity.

Stephanie St. Germain said investigators are not releasing the woman’s name, citing the ongoing investigation.
In a statement Friday, the city’s fire chief said police had not yet been able to determine the cause of death.
“We do not have any information to indicate foul play at this time,” said Colleen McDonough.
The family has called on the city to do more to protect the public and has asked that the video be made public.
“The fact that she’s a police officer who did this to a 5 year old, she shouldn’t be able to go to a funeral without a police escort, and she shouldn.,” said the girl’s grandmother, Angela Wallace.
Her mother said the family would be “outraged” by the video and that they are “not comfortable with the whole thing.”
