Possible Relief for Families
July 17, 2008 permalink
A member of Canada Court Watch has communicated with the ombudsman André Marin and has a possible route to relief for families wrecked by children's aid. Taking the case to the Child and Family Services Review Board may give the ombudsman an entry into the case. We have a version of PapaJohn's personal story (MS-Word), with names altered to comply with disclosure laws.

Good news, perhaps for all...
Hey folks. Last week I sent an e-mail to the Ombudsman that contained the 28 page story of our dealings with C.A.S. and the courts and lawyers. Also attached were video evidence , photo evidence, and audio recorded evidence of our claims.
Last night I received a phone call from Andre Marin personally. He told me his assistant Julie had looked at our material and passed it on to him because she felt in needed immediate attention. He told me he read the document and looked through and listened to all the material and he was VERY concerned with what has been happening to our family. He stated that he could not intervene personally due to current laws HOWEVER he COULD assist us in getting in touch with the people who COULD help us. He told us to contact the Child and Family Services Review Board ( http://www.cfsrb.ca/en/cfsrb/your-rights/scenario-two ) and send them all of the materials I sent him along with any updated material. I mentioned to him that we thought about going there but were hesitant because we heard they are biased to C.A.S. He said he understood that BUT there was a method to his madness. Yes, he can not step in and help us with C.A.S. BUT if the Child and Family Services Review Board does not do the right thing then he CAN go after THEM which would then also affect C.A.S.!! He told me that as soon as the process with the Review Board is complete to contact him with the results and he will take it from there.
He also told me that we need, not should but NEED, to speak to a good lawyer and have a suit brought against C.A.S. under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms sections 7 and 8
7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.
Search or seizure
8. Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.
because C.A.S. has clearly abused our rights under these two sections.
So for those who need help try the Review board and if you don't get satisfactory results there then go to the Ombudsman.
