Quotes to Inspire

"Few will have the greatness to bend history; however, each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope... and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."

— Robert F. Kennedy

17-year-old teen tells court, "Who do these CAS workers think they are?"

(June 16, 2010) Court Watch has obtained the sworn testimony of a 17-year-old teenager who submitted an affidavit to the court in which she posed the question to the court asking as to who these CAS workers think they are to supervise her when when was 17 years old and doing just fine on her own at home.

CAS had wanted an order to supervise the family to make sure that the parents cared for the child properly in spite of the teens age and the fact that she was happy and doing well at home.

In her affidavit, the teen claimed that CAS were attempting to get the order out of revenge for her walking out of CAS care when she was 16 years of age. In spite of many threats against her by CAS workers to have her and her parents arrested by police, the teen said she walked out of the CAS facility where she was being abused and has stated that she will never return to that CAS hell.

Court Watch will be publishing a story about this brave girl who has stood up to fight the CAS bullies and won her freedom. Readers should stay tuned for further developments to this story.

This is for the girl who had the courage to speak up. Always listen to your inner voice, most of the time it's telling you the right thing to do. I also stood up and spoke up on my behalf and the others who were being abused also. I thank-you for going through with the whole process, I'm sure it was nerve wrecking. But you survived; No pain is forever. Even though you will always have those memories in the back of your head. Take it as an experience and learn from it. If you feel it's right, continue to speak up on behalf of others and see how far you'll get. Children's aid society is a corrupt organization that is going to continue to be corrupt, and brainwash all of these children, and teenagers, who deserve to live a real life. Keep your head up, and good luck on your journey. This to shall pass, and when your free take advantage to what the world has to offer you. Go all out, you deserve to.


I find that the reason CAS try so hard to get kids even teenagers back to their custody has nothing to do with what is in the best interest of the children but what is best for their pocket books... they really don't care about our children.... if they did there wouldn't be so many bad incidents with the young generation both in their care and out of.. all they care about is the funding. If our governments suddenly cut off all funding to the CAS until further notice, I can guarantee that the CAS would not be showing any concern for our children... despite their cry to the our provincial governments on "how much children need protection", they would just act as if they didn't know or claim that there never was any concern upon investigating; it really is all about the money; of course they could never say that to our politicians, so they resort to crying foul play on behalf of the children just to get funding... what about our children's rights to be heard? they claim that children have rights yet why do our court judges look the other way when children cry out for help? and the courts seem to have a double set of standards for what is considered truth in their court rooms; if a child testifies against the CAS; "oh, children are such liars!" yet if they testify against the parents or any other caregiver outside the CAS; "children never lie!" it's about time our Family court judges be held accountable whenever a decision that ends up harming a minor occurs, as well as punished severely for such decisions; parents would be so why not them?, maybe then they would think twice about their decisions that affect our families lives! There should be absolutely "no immunity" for judges and their decisions, if we can sue a doctor for malpractice then why not a judge?! For emotional scares "can" and usually "do" last a lifetime...! In my opinion, CAS is nothing more than a BABY BLACK MARKET ring operating in plain sight for they feel nothing or nobody can touch them, and it's long overdue that the reign of terror ends!!!


It's pretty sad when the children's aid societies of Ontario wont even let a teenager try having the chance to grow up. Most kids at that age are trying to learn independance,but with the children's aid societies it's all about control and minipulation. Is this there way of still gaining fouding while the the teenager is living back at home? How should they have the right to stop any teenager from chosing to live with there loving families. At that age the child should be able to use there own voice in the courtrooms so the truth can be heard. After all who would know better then the teenager whats going on in the family home. The children's aid societies walk all over way to meny of ours and our childs rights with lies and purgery in the courtroom with no accounability what so ever. Why should there be any kind of abouse to the children in foster care when there guide lines are to protect all children from harm and abouse?


its kinda funny to read the mpps are jamming through a bill regarding parol reform???
the people who they are concerned about primarily the child abuse guy who abused brenden shanahan and carla hololka.

when the cas has caused deaths of children and the disstruction of familys in this province for decades.

I guess the politicians don't deem regular people in this province and country are important, politicians values are apperently missguided.

the people in this province have brought the criminal behavior of the cas to politicians in many many storys but appeerently the politicians dont seem to care i guess maybe because the people effected arnt famous or they are trying to cover up there own wrong doing eg. karla hamolka should still be in jail and she should never have been released she should have spent the rest of her life in jail for waht she did ???

the politicians sure are a bunch of hippocrites.
