This father who is a school teacher from Ontario has not seen his children for over two years and he partly attributes this to the involvement of the Children's Aid Society. According to this father, the CAS provided ongoing support to the mother in spite of the fact that the children reported being abused by the mother and yet did not inform the father about the children being abused or what the CAS was doing to intervene. Basically, the father was treated as an outsider, with no rights to know about his children.
Court Watch does have independent video disclosures from the children which support the father's claims that the mother was abusing the children and trying to alienate them from their father.
A growing number of children and parents in Ontario are reporting abuses against themselves and/or their families by workers with the various Children's Aid agencies in Ontario, many of who are not licensed by the Ontario College of Social Workers.
As one way of reducing the abuse of families, Court Watch maintains the position that all interviews with children must be conducted on videotape and that children and parents must be ensured the right to use recording devices to accurately record meetings with CAS workers.
