A 14- or 15-year-old girl is not a child, but rather a “sexually mature young woman,” according to a lawyer for a Northern Ontario children’s aid society.

The statement by Toronto lawyer Gary McCallum is contained in a July 2018 affidavit in an ongoing civil court case, in which a woman is suing Kenora-Rainy River Districts Child and Family Services, claiming she was sexually abused as a child by her foster father in the 1980s while under the care of the agency’s predecessor organization.
