A Mississauga mother’s concerns over the handling of a Peel Children’s Aid Society (CAS) investigation involving her 7-year-old son has refocused the spotlight on service levels during an ongoing strike by child protection workers at the agency.
The mother of a boy attending Metropolitan Andrei Catholic School told news media Thursday that Peel CAS launched an investigation into an incident involving her son and another child at the school, but she wasn’t informed about the probe until days later.
According to the mother, her son was approached by a 10-year-old boy while the two children were in a washroom.
The older boy pulled down his pants, asked the younger student to do the same and made comments and actions of an aggressively sexual nature, the mother alleged.
It occurred during a PLASP after school program.
