Ombudsman should have oversight of CAS

It made my stomach turn to read the recent story about the man who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing his girlfriend’s teenage daughter, who has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old. But the last few paragraphs were truly sickening — the horrible abuse occurred under the watchful eye of the Children’s Aid Society. Why are they never held to account like the perpetrators, one of which got only a 10-month prison sentence? Ontario should give oversight protection to Ontario Ombudsman Andre Marin.
