Mother's Watered Milk

CAS saves on its food budget by forcing its wards to fill their stomachs with water before getting milk. They also force children to give false testimony on pain of remaining forever in a group home.
Children being forced to drink a cup of water before being allowed to drink milk at Toronto area CAS group home
(February 5, 2008) A video interview of an 11-year-old child was given to Court Watch in which the child describes on videotape how the CAS workers in a Toronto area group home force the young children at the facility to drink a cup of plain water before they are allowed to drink any milk. It was the rule. If the kids did not drink water first they got no milk. This skinny boy said that after he drank a cup of water, he would feel full and not want to drink milk in addition to the water. This sort of sick rule of the CAS group home shows the extent to which these government-funded CAS agencies will go to to keep their profit margins as high as possible, even if it means that the children are made to suffer nutritionally.
This boy describes how the group home workers and the CAS workers make him afraid because he was told by CAS staff and his CAS social worker that unless he says bad things about his father and that he tells authorities with the court that he wants to live only with his mother, that he will be forced to remain in the group home forever. The boy disclosed many instances [of] treatment by the CAS and its workers which can only be described as sick and demented. Most people would be shocked to see this video of a child describing his abuse at the hands of the CAS, including sexual abuse by his male CAS social worker. While the boy is being told by the CAS workers that he must say that he wants to live with his mother, the boy describes later in the interview how his mother abuses him and that she brings strange men into her apartment and that she has sex with the men right in the living room of his mother's apartment.
