The Hamilton Spectator prints an article today in praise of the Children's Aid Society. It omits one important fact, which we give following the article.



Giving children a better life

By Michael P. Shea, Superintendent, Corporate Services Division, Hamilton Police Service

The Hamilton Spectator(Mar 11, 2006)

Re: 'Crown wards: stories of struggle and survival' and 'Kids at risk face harsh adjustment' (both March 7)

These stories accurately identified not only a growing problem within our community, but the importance of a timely and compassionate response by child protection workers.

The successes identified in these articles are not accidental.

They are the result of dedicated and committed staff doing everything in their power to make life better for our most vulnerable members -- our children.

The staff of the Children's Aid Society of Hamilton, from the executive director to the front-line workers, are second to none.

I am proud to be associated with such a caring and professional organization.

They do make a difference.

An endorsement of Children's Aid from an informed outsider, a police superintendent. The article omits mention that on the board of directors page of the Children's Aid Society of Hamilton author Michael P Shea appears as 1st Vice President. Mr Shea is acting as a shill.
