Children’s Aid Society or Drug Dealer’s Aid Society?

Posted in Politics with tags , , , , , on 09/05/2011 by patrickivan

The Children’s Aid Society is letting 4 children stay with an accused drug dealer whose home was raided for alleged trafficking. The accused was charged with  possession for the purpose, schedule I and II x 2. His wife was as well.

He is believed to have been doing it for some time now. He sold to high school students and sold from his home were his children reside.

Children’s Aid believes that this home is suitable, despite 2 of the children having a mother that has 50% custody of them, and a drug free home.

One of the children residing with them was kicked out of his/her home. CAS deems this situation as acceptable. For a homeless child to live with drug dealer.

Children’s Aid Society is a joke.

Oh yes- Debbie Wilkes. Not the figure skater. Though I wonder if she was the same Debbie Wilkes who worked at the Alliston Family Health Team. She was helping me with something. I had one visit with her, and she disappeared. No word. No calls returned. She just stopped helping… Sounds like someone who is a perfect fit for Children’s Aid.
