Protestors want ombudsman to have power to investigate CAS
A group of about 15 people protested on Lasalle Boulevard, across the road from the Children's Aid Society (CAS) of the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin April 22.
The protesters want the province to pass a private member's bill, Bill 93, introduced by provincial NDP leader Andrea Horwath, which would give the ombudsman the power to investigate Children's Aid Societies in the province.
Among those who attended the protest was William Mullins Johnson, a Sault Ste. Marie man who was wrongfully convicted of murder in the 1993 death of his four-year-old niece, Valin Johnson.
He blames the Children's Aid Society for ruining his family, because during the investigation they bullied his six-year-old niece “into telling lies.”
