The Children's Aid Society of Kingston is misrepresenting itself as part of the Ontario government. It is actually incorporated as a private charity under the Corporations Act. A victim of the misrepresentation reports her experience.
Sara Perry I was left a message from Canpar yesterday that they have a package from the Ontario government for me and will reattempt to deliver today. I received the package. I see it is from the Kingston CAS. I questioned the driver as to why he had indicated the package was from the Ontario Government when that was not the case. He informed me that all numbers on the packages that start with 556 have to be identified as from the Ontario Government. They have all been instructed by head office that they are to tell the customer the package is coming from the Ontario Government. The bar code on my package starts with D556. How is it the Kingston CAS is allowed to use that code on packages they send out when they are not the Ontario government. They are in essence misrepresenting themselves with a twist. No where on their label do they identify themselves as the Ontario Government. Instead they have Canpar misrepresenting them on their behalf as the Ontario Government. What is the penalty when a private organization instructs couriers to identify their documents as coming from the Ontario Government?
