On April 4 there was a rally outside the Waterloo CAS office at 200 Ardelt Ave, Kitchener ahead of "Foster Parent Information Night". To avoid tipping off CAS it was not announced in advance. Here are some photographs:    .

CAS Gets Hit Hard!!!!
Today local anti poverty protestors joined forces with Canada Court Watch and Voices to deliver a message to potential CAS Foster parents at CAS Foster Parent Recruiting Night.
While people were picketing outside, several activists set up shop inside the CAS recruiting event with sighns and pamphlets explaining the true nature of CAS and how it is used as a tool to target poor parents and steal their children.
Armed with several recent newspaper articles about corruption and CAS crimes against children, as well as information, many potential foster parents were shown a diffrent side to this “nice organization”. potential foster parents were appauled to find out that CAS is a for profit organization with no government oversite, granted tremendous powers. As we engaged in discussion we were approuched by the organizor of the event who said we could stay and particpate, since to my knowledge it was a public event. We agreed to engage and discuss matters civilly and that all we wanted to do was raise our concerns and issues. A bit later, we were aprouched by a CAS boss who was nice and sweet as honey when she asked us to leave and said that we could leave our information at the front desk. We left causeing no fuss only to see a totally opposite side to her when we were out of earshot from the potential recruits. This makes us wonder what children go through when no one is watching!!!
We then joined those picketing and handing out information outside, and many passerbyers were supportive.
All in all this was a successfull demonstration and action, as people turned away when they saw the picket. Most importantly, we exposed the truth to these potential recuits through hard, solid facts!!!!
