CAS Abuses:    Analysis  and Abuse Lists


The lists of abuses summarize various abuses by CASs and similar agencies across Canada so that a parent has a better chance of recognizing CAS Bad Faith conduct and countering it appropriately.


Until a landmark decision occurs, CASs easily abuse the ‘Applicant’ role under the CFSA knowing that in Case Law the courts have refused to punish them for abuses.  The logic is that 'punishment' falls under 'Tort Law' and the courts do not want to limit the CAS 'investigative powers'. This actually opens the door to widespread abuse by CASs knowing that the 'quantums of costs' for bad faith acts by a CAS are a 'Walmart discount' for Perjury enabling the CAS to nullify the jurisdiction of any court at will...acts that ordinary people go to jail for!  The 'quantums of costs' is only your legal costs while being abused by the CAS, you can't claim 'damages', that's a civil Tort action. No wonder CASs insist on lying in court. This means it's highly profitable for CASs, since every child rubberstamped into Crown wardship is worth an average $65,000+ a year or  $1,000,000+ in 18 years!  Clearly, most of the money never goes to the 'care' of harvested children.  Until courts treat crown ward orders obtained by fraud as a financial fraud and child abuse by infringing on the Statutory Interests of the child seriously, there will be more of the same.  In the meantime, the court's light treatment of CAS deception, bad faith acts, actually increases abuses within the legal system and creates state funded child abuse under the very nose of the court!  For examples, see our Guide: ' Court / CAS Double Standard in Case Law '  at this download link.

Along with abusing the ‘Applicant’ role under the CFSA it also is an abuse of the ‘publicly funded service provider role’ defined in the CFSA.  All these factors combined with public funding in the millions of dollars for litigation show that CASs at will, at any time, without fear of any court (and no respect for any law or any court) destroy the ‘unimpeachability’ of any and all proceedings!  This means the CAS can commit any atrocity limited only by the devious imagination of CAS employees.  It has been said, ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely’, it’s worse then that: ‘any power corrupts absolutely’!,  as seen in typical town hall expense abuses all the way to Ottawa!  So the abuse a CAS can inflict on children, parents and the courts knows no bounds!

Family Courts through their refusal to make decisions with real deterrent value, have enabled the CAS to commit the acts below.  In cases
where respondents are unrepresented, the CAS is given the freedom to rape and rob respondents and children, often denying disabled children treatment, which is child abuse as listed in CFSA s 37(2), violating Statutory requirements in s 37(3). 

It can be argued the CAS in Canada always was a bigger child abuser then the Catholic Church!!  Just ask any of 1 million surviving former Crown Wards.   The Catholic Church no longer gets away with child abuse - only the CAS!

All abuses by a CAS are considered ‘bad faith acts’ by the courts when you prove it. The courts are seldom angry or outraged at the conduct of the CAS, while they instantly stomp on ordinary citizens who cannot possibly overcome professionally perjured affidavits of the CAS!

** Shaken Baby Syndrome ('SBS') was made 'popular' by disgraced Dr Charles Smith Pathologist. It turns out the forces needed to create SBS would inflict serious injuries to the neck of an infant or young child long before brain damage could occur. The Ontario government has been doing a review of convictions for SBS or where Dr Charles Smith was the expert witness. Numerous appeals have been won to set aside convictions.  We do not condone shaking any child, it can still be considered abuse. However, CASs have ignored recent decisions and new expert evidence debunking SBS and used SBS to make false abuse claims against parents who cannot possibly be aware of other court findings. Unless a parent can counter these claims, Family Courts that know better easily rubberstamp a fraudulent Crown Ward order.
