Please Don't Feed the CAS

January 30, 2010 permalink

Simcoe County CAS, based in Barrie, has gone hat-in-hand begging for a $10,000 loan from the town of Collingwood to get through its financial difficulties. Attila Vinczer [1] [2] has written a letter to Collingwood (pdf) urging them to refuse the loan. Another document contains the referenced working paper by the Family Justice Review Committee (pdf). Even better than refusing the loan would be for Collingwood to insist on improvements within Children's Aid as a condition for financial support.

Addendum: According to Attila Vinczer, on February 1 Collingwood voted against funding CAS. Here is a more complete submission (pdf) found later.
