arabian will become famous soon enough

The federal government garnishment will likely stay in place indefinitely. They will only take money (tax returns, HST/GST refunds, etc.) as long as FRO determines he is in arrears. When he is not in arrears the garnishment still stays. Same with the report to the credit agency. This "mark" on credit shouldn't be a big deal if the rest of your credit rating is good.

Going through the Ombudsman is a very long process. They would likely have requested to see your letter to the Director of FRO along with the letter you received back from FRO before they would open a file for you. You have to convince them that FRO was administratively unfair in their decisions.

If you feel FRO is incorrect in their calculations, and you have done everything including but not limited to writing a letter to the Director of FRO, then your next step would be to amass your documentation and go to court.
