Default CAS and The Easter Bunny? Hamilton, ON

I read this today and thought it a bit strange. I didn't know where to post it.

Obviously it sounds ridiculous, but let's change context.


Kid comes from an atheist family. Foster family insists on bringing kid to religious services every Sunday morning, is that ok?


Kid comes from jewish background. Foster family refuses to celebrate jewish holidays, is that ok?


Kid comes from aboriginal (or whatever designation is trendy these days) background. Foster family refuses to acknowledge that background and dresses kids in western clothing and sends them to western schools. Kinda like a residential school but small scale. Is that ok?


Kid comes from family that believes in the easter bunny. Foster family refuses to acknowledge the existence of easter bunny, is that ok?


My point: Nobody is forcing anybody to celebrate any holidays. However, if you voluntarily decide to take in a kid from a different culture, perhaps you have a responsibility to make some efforts to raise the kid in the manner he would have otherwise been raised.

Not the case... I can't find the one referenced in the article. Someone may have alerted the media to the matter. Generally, CAS files don't have names attached. So, I found the reporting really weird.

But, it did remind me of the above quote from Pazaratz...

If my children were removed by CAS I would hope they went to a good home with loving people like the Baars the last thing on my mind would be if the Easter Bunny was visiting.
