CAS Membership Application

September 16, 2010 permalink

The Children's Aid Society of Ottawa has posted a membership form (pdf, local copy) on its website. You can find it by going to their home page and reading the news item dated 8/26/2010 11:49:30 AM. It looks like John Dunn's advocacy has paid off.

There still is a long way to go. Most children's aid societies now have provisions in their bylaws limiting membership to persons sharing the objectives of the society. To become a member you must state your interest and what you want to contribute to the work of the society. Imagine if, before voting in a federal election, you had to answer questions like this and get the prior approval of the Conservative Party of Canada.

Thanks to John Dunn for noting this development on Facebook.
