Ombudsman Ignores Ongoing Cases

May 25, 2005 permalink

Dr Dolores A Sicheri reports that the investigation by Ontario Ombudsman André Marin is turning into a whitewash. She says:

The Ombudsman has had hundreds of calls regarding this investigation. Cathy Penshold from the Ombudsman's Office had told several parents that Mr. Marin is only to investigate seven cases of his own choosing.

The parents who rights were already terminated for access to services, are out of luck. These parents were looking for some justice. He is going to limit his investigation to those whose rights are presently being threatened.

Cases where children have been severed from parents are not over and done with. The injury continues every day.
