Trick or Treat!

A social worker passes herself off as a friendly neighbor to get inside a home and investigate the family.
Hallowe'en Night I was at my son's fathers house getting ready to go trick or treating with his current girlfriend and her children when there was a knock on the door. My ex's girlfriend (for the sake of this post we will call her J.) answered the door and there was a lady standing there. The lady at the door asked "Are you J?" J responded with yes and and the lady said "My name is Patty. Can I talk to you for a few minutes?" J responded with sure as her and my ex had just moved in to this house this past weekend and was not sure of who her neighbours may be. Once Patty was in the house she said "My name is Patty Sawec and I am here from FACS." I did remain during the entire interview and YES I did record the entire meeting. This meeting raised a whole lot of questions. 1. Is this the new CAS PROTOCOL to gain access to people's homes? 2. Since when do CAS workers not have to wear identification? 3. Why did it take a week to investigate a claim that was made at the prior address? A claim of abuse and violence towards the children.
At one point during the conversation it was stated by the worker that she came on this night because she knew that my ex was at work, since he was working a shift that he did not normally work, how did she determine that my ex would not be at home? Towards the end of the interview J asked the worker how she got the new address as they had not left any forwarding address with anyone and the worker replied "I got it from the school board as it is their obligation to assist us with investigations." So my final question is not really a question but a statement.....It is a sad, sad society we live in when no one or their information is safe from the CAS as it is the police, school boards, doctors, etc. obligation to assist CAS with their investigations.
