The Bill (Bill 42 of this Session) is titled the;
Ombudsman Amendment Act (Children's Aid Societies), 2013You can read the content of the Bill at this link, or the discussions of MPPs regarding this Bill when it was being voted to go second reading and on to a committee. Notice how hard the Liberals are arguing against the Bill. Why? What are they afraid of? It appears the entire party is being whipped into saying no by their leader. You will also notice a former foster child who admits having worked with a CAS later in life, also happens to be against oversight. Sounds like a conflict of interest or at least the appearance of it.
You will also read how CAS are allegedly overseen by the local community as non-profit corporations, however, we are all too familiar with the fact that CAS will reject membership applications of the members of the community who have any type of advocacy or difference of opinion toward or on CAS business.
