Ontario Government Harasses Mother

December 11, 2005 permalink

Ontario child protectors may have found a new way to harass clients circumventing caller identification. A mother menaced by Children's Aid has reported receiving several calls in which no one speaks to her after she answers the phone. Identification of the caller leads to an Ontario government office with only the following recorded message:

You've reached the number 905-521-7460 for the Ontario government located at 119 King Street West in Hamiltion. Should you be calling in response to having seen this number on your call display, please be advised that this telephone number is not a personal telephone number for anyone in this building. This number is strictly for Bell Canada billing purposes. Please hang up, check the number for the office or ministry you are trying to dial and call again. We do apologize for your inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
