CAS transports children in a vehicle that is not road-worthy and lacks child safety equipment.
Kevin Harris Well here's something interesting in regards to volunteer drivers and FACS , I get my two boys for overnight visits from Friday at 6 pm to Saturday at 6 pm, It all was good but the driver was 10 to 15 minutes late. I have to have them ready to go on time and prompt my boys that they are leaving at 6PM, but it's ok if the driver is late, NOT! So I had this new driver this week with an old beat up Sunfire that couldn't pass a safety check if the cars life depended on it. In other words a piece of CRAP or should I say, piece of SCRAP, noisy exhaust system as I could hear it coming down the road a mile away, in other words, not road worthy at all, and I have scrapped better. Only the best for the kids to be transported in, NOT! But FACS says they have high standards for children in care, again NOT! But here's the kicker: my oldest is 6 and youngest is 4, and driver had car seat for 4-year-old but no booster for my 6-year-old. I said to him: Where's the booster seat? He replied: I don't need one as I have this do-hicky that secures the belt. Such BS. I was made to supply car seat and booster for my children or look out I will feel their wrath. Under the highway traffic act it states children under the age of 8 require a booster seat, Period! Its a hefty fine and the loss of two demerit points on your licence. So I went to police and told them what transpired and they wouldn't [do] anything about it, and instructed me to call FACS and complain. WOW, cops are in their back pockets as well. So it comes down to my own thinking. Don't do as they do, just do as they SAY. They're all NAZI's and I am totally disgusted with the system in place. But I have filed formal complaint with after hours worker and will follow up with my own worker on Tuesday.
