Quotes to Inspire

People crushed by laws, have no hope but to evade power. If the laws are their enemies, they will be enemies to the law; and those who have most to hope and nothing to lose will always be dangerous.

— Edmund Burke

Nova Scotia government takes over child protection - Ontario should be next

(April 13, 2010) The provincial government of Nova Scotia has decided to take over control of the last three independent children's aid agencies in that province. Many consider this to be a good move which will ultimately save the taxpayers money by minimizing the duplication of services while at the same time improve services to children and families.

Ontario is the last fortress of privately-owned CAS agencies in Canada where privately owned Ontario corporations are openly violating the rights and freedoms of Canadians every day.

Growing public pressure about the unaccountability of CAS agencies in Ontario will eventually force the Province of Ontario to take similar action and shut down the privately owned CAS agencies in Ontario. Many believe that bringing CAS agencies under government control will save money and improve accountability to some extent.

The privatization of CAS agencies in Ontario has shown itself to be clearly a social experiment gone bad.

Cape Breton Post - April 11, 2010

by Tom Ayers

SYDNEY — The union representing workers at the last three independent children’s aid societies in the province says it is concerned about job losses once the agencies come under provincial Community Services control at the end of October.

“Sadly, this is the final chapter to a wrong-headed idea that was started by the previous Progressive Conservative government,” Canadian Union of Public Employees president Danny Cavanagh said in a news release.

“The elimination of all local child welfare agencies in this province is now complete. We believe communities in rural Nova Scotia will suffer as a result of these changes.”

The union said child welfare agencies in Pictou and Colchester counties, as well as the Inverness-Richmond Children’s Aid Society based out of Port Hawkesbury, will fall under provincial control by Oct. 31.

A January 2006 government report recommended all private children’s aid societies in the province join the Department of Community Services. A departmental spokesperson said the move will provide a more consistent delivery of the programs and services for families and children.

The Children’s Aid Society of Cape Breton-Victoria disbanded March 31. The chairman of the local board of directors said at the time having the province run the programs and services is the best way to ensure continued quality child welfare services.

The chairman, Murdock Moore, also said allowing the provincial government to take control of the society will give it access to larger human resources and communications staff, and enable employees to join the provincial government pension program.

Workers at the provincial agencies automatically become members of the Nova Scotia Government & General Employees Union.

However, CUPE communications officer John McCracken said centralizing services under provincial control is simply a cost-saving measure that will result in reduced staff and reduced hours for social workers, and locally run agencies are also better.

“It’s our experience that those local agencies are just more responsive to their communities.” he said.
