CAS rally for more money
570 News 2009-11-20 16:14
Kitchener - About 150 people gathered at Kitchener City Hall over the noon hour on Friday.
They are calling for more provincial cash so the Children's Aid Societies can balance their books.
Trudy Beaulne, Executive-Director of The Social Planning Council of Kitchener-Waterloo says funding cuts cause the greatest immediate concern.
Beaulne tells 570 News if the CAS is forced to cut back it will put more pressure on other agencies.
Family and Children's Services of Waterloo Region is dealing with an almost one million dollar deficit.

Hi John and group.
There were only a few of us who were able to attend the Rally today.
CTV covered it. Their reporter is Frank Lynn.
There is already a short blurb from this afternoon on CTV's website about the Rally.
There were about 70 or so CAS workers-supporters there.
The CAS's union (CUPE?) had it pretty well organized.
They had about 3 or 4 speakers, a podium, and a sound system all set up.
The WRPS came over to talk to me as soon as they got there (two constables) and sought assurances that our protest would be peaceful.
The officers were reasonable and even seemed concerned and open to the issues we spoke of (damage done to children via CAS imposed malicious litigation against those children's parents-families, lying in affidavits, perjury, dirty tactics, etc...)
There were a number of people who just happened to be walking by who saw our "Children's Aid Destroys Families" (CADFs)signs who came up to us to tell us their CAS horror stories.
The CTV crew took some footage of us holding up our CADFs signs and Mr. Lynn interviewed on camera me very briefly.
I spoke about the abnormal litigiousness of the CAS RMW and I spoke about that 2003 MCYS "research project" which examined the CAS RMW litigiousness: "A Review of Legal Services of the Children's Aid Societies of the Central-West Region."
If you have the time and inclination there is mention of it of the CAS RMW website in their 2002/3 Annual Report.
Check CTV Kitchener if you get a chance.
