Ottawa CAS Back to Offences Court

November 16, 2009 permalink

John Dunn is again trying to get the Ottawa CAS held accountable for their failure to comply with the Corporations Act.

Mr Dunn tried to do this once before. At each of the court hearings the lawyer for children's aid entered no plea. Instead, he came up with yet another reason for delaying the process one more time. Refer to: August 9, September 9, September 13, November 21, November 23 (all in 2007), January 3, January 25 and May 16 (in 2008).

In the end, the offence matter never came before the court. Ottawa CAS agreed to send one mailing on behalf of Mr Dunn to its membership.

Note: Wording corrected November 19 on advice from John Dunn. This is a provincial offence matter, not criminal.
