Professional Courtesy

October 17, 2008 permalink

When an Ontario police officer is accused of domestic violence, CAS invokes a special procedure for dealing with the case, extending an informal professional courtesy. This according to testimony from Jo-Ellen Worden before the Standing Committee on Social Policy of the Ontario Legislature on August 28, 2008. She also suggests that "consents" for disclosure of medical information obtained by children's aid societies are often the product of deception or coercion. Thanks to John Dunn for pointing this out.
