Susan Campbell It was great, not a big turnout, but we got our message across. A CAS Worker actually drove by and showed us the finger, at the same time as the Newspaper Reporter was there, real professional worker. We also all got a nice sunburn :) pretty nice weather for March, I would say!!

CAS protest

Members of Canada Court Watch Grey-Bruce and the Ontario Coalition for Accountability were in Stratford last Wednesday holding a small protest outside the Children's Aid Society office at the corner of Lorne Avenue and Downie Street. Group spokesperson Catherine Frei, of Waterloo, said they were aiming to raise awareness about issues surrounding the Children's Aid Society, including a lack of accountability and oversight, and the need for an ombudsman to handle complaints about the agency. Similar rallies have been held throughout the province over the last few years. Frei said response in Stratford was mostly positive, and many motorists honked to show their support or stopped to find out more about the cause.
