Reuel Amdur asks…

The suspension decision is appalling. Question one: Do we want to destroy our national professional organization? It would leave us with no organization to speak for us. It would fracture the profession. The difficulties go back to the time when a decision was made to turn CASW into an organization of organizations (provincial & territorial), rather than of individuals. Quebec’s withdrawal should have been the trigger which would cause action to reverse that error, which under our present misguided provincial leadership can prove fatal to CASW. OASW cannot help to carry out the needed reorganization of CASW if it is not at the table.

It should be noted that, just as this terrible decision will in all likelihood kill CASW, so too it threatens OASW. I am hearing from various members that, should OASW persist in this madness, they will terminate their memnbership. Add your voice on this issue. It is a matter of urgency.
