"...deaths of hundreds of children who died while in the care of children's aid societies." including the
facts the Children's aid staff were enjoying a free ride at high-end restaurants,.... with no explanation,
.....expensive trips to the Caribbean, China and Buenos Aires.
The auditor also questions, "why government funding for Ontario's children's aid societies has more than
doubled over six years, while the number of families served increased by 40 per cent."

These issues along the thousands calling for a judicial review of this system appears long over due.
With overwhelming number of Ontarions calling on McGuinty to give the Ontario Ombudsman
the minimum resources to examine the many other thousand complaints.

On one hand these agencies are claiming that they are removing children from their families as they are in need
of protection, while the provincial auditor general, "allege the societies aren't following the law to protect children.
In one-third of cases reviewed, initial visits to children at risk were late by an average of three weeks.
Some children weren't seen at all."

"In the best interest of the children..."is but a motto to feed your guilt...while
children are used as pawns, then left to fall through the cracks...

What do you think...?
