Canada Court Watch reports on a CAS worker willing to expose corruption within her agency, including documentary evidence. The same worker says that CAS workers now fear the effective campaigns by opponents to expose CAS actions.
Vernon Beck An experienced and long time senior CAS senior worker has engaged in preliminary discussions with Canada Court Watch and has indicated her willingness to expose the corruption going on within her agency. Some of the information she has provided to date is chilling. The worker has alleged illegal and fraudulent activities (including tax evasion by CAS) going on inside the CAS agency which employed her. While Court Watch does receive the occasional call from an honest CAS workers providing information about CAS wrongdoing, this worker has indicated her willingness to go public and has indicated that she will be providing names and documents to support her claims and that she has been collecting this information secretly for months.
This worker has indicated that her conscience will no longer allow her to remain silent on what she sees is damage being done to children and families by her fellow employees. More on this developing story will be published in the weeks to come as Court Watch conducts an investigation into this matter.
Court Watch urges any other CAS workers or foster parents who are aware of unlawful or suspicious activities going on with the CAS agency they work for to contact Canada Court Watch in confidence either by email or phone. Those workers who remain silent and continue to hide what they know is wrong may well be caught up in the net themselves and find themselves with their careers ruined and facing criminal charges.
Vernon Beck This worker has also disclosed that many workers within CAS agencies are becoming increasingly afraid because of what they see are effective campaigns by advocacy groups to expose CAS. She said that many of the workers at her agency were very afraid of being caught and exposed by organizations such as Canada Court Watch. We remind all readers to keep their recording devices close and to video or audio record everything involving CAS. What goes around comes around and with the help of each and every parent who fights them, the days of CAS being able to avoid accountability are soon to come to an end.
