In a closing submission to the Goudge inquiry (pdf), lawyer Suzan Fraser, acting on behalf of Defence of Children International, quotes Eileen Munro:

social workers need a greater acceptance of their fallibility and a willingness to consider that the judgements and decisions are wrong. To change your mind in the light of new information is a sign of good practice, a sign of strength not weakness.

The performance of Suzan Fraser at the Goudge inquiry impels us to change our mind in the light of new information. We hereby repudiate our earlier suspicions of Defence of Children International - Canada and Matthew Geigen-Miller expressed on April 18, 2007 in a note on Child Advocacy in Ontario. They deserve to be respected as conscientious advocates for the welfare of Canada's children.
