A Waterloo CAS worker forges a damaging document, loses an exculpatory one, cuts off a mother's finances and checks herself in as a patient in a psychiatric hospital. All in the best interest of the child.
Waterloo Regions CAS forging signatures on court documents and destroying evidence
Recently in the past few months I was contacted by a mother that has had dealings with the Waterloo Region CAS office. After months of torturous separation from her child there have been discoveries made. One of the two workers on her case forged a signature on a court document, that same worker also has “lost” important documents that clearly would clear this mother’s name of the accusations being made against her. This worker also felt the need to contact the Child Tax Benefit office as well as Ontario Housing in an attempt to completely disable this mother from having her child returned. Just in the past week or so it was brought to this woman’s attention, and another mother dealing with the same worker, that the CAS employee was on an indefinite leave of absence. Well …. it has been confirmed tonight that this worker is indeed on a leave of absence, and has been for two weeks in the local hospitals psychiatric facility. After some careful investigation this information was confirmed. My question is, “Did they plan to keep it secret and bring her back to the job?” I only ask this because one of the mother’s just had a court appearance and the worker was not present and the courts were told that she was in hospital with some health issues. Scary, scary stuff!
