I have a couple of things to say. First and foremost, I received an incredible donation of $50.00 on Friday, from a woman who truely believes in what I am doing, and I wanted her to know that I greatly appreciate it. I used $21.00 worth to photocopy 100 (two sided) CROWN WARD NEWSLETTERS, and will do more photocopying (and coffee ;) ) with the remainder for flyers.

So a great big hug and thanks to you for your donation. If you are reading this, and you can contact me please feel free to email me at afterfostercare at lycos.com

I have been at the corner of Sussex and Rideau in Ottawa since Friday, and will remain there for the month. I am considering relocating to outside of the office of the C.A.S. Ottawa until I leave for Toronto at the end of April or May with my C.A.S. Radio Booth.

I have also made a formal request of the C.A.S. Ottawa media contact person to have a brief interview on a couple of questions, mainly as follows.

Hello there.

My name is John Dunn. I am the webmaster of the
Canadian After Foster Care web site, and the host of
C.A.S. Radio.

I would like to setup a brief interview with someone
at C.A.S. Ottawa to discuss the procedures that
addictions counselling facilities must take when a
client or potential clients reports to them that they
have children.

Please feel free to contact me at the following

John Dunn

Stay tuned here for more updates.

Greetings... It is now 1:00am EST Ottawa time.. I just watched Gandhi the movie and have a quote I would like to apply to the CAS not allowing me to have copies of my files, or those of my deceased mother. This quote will go on my web home page.

Gandhi Said

"What you can not do is accept injustice from hitler or anyone.

You must make the injustice visible.

Be prepared to die like a soldier"

This summer, I will be posting myself outside of the Catholic CAS on Maitland Street in Toronto until I get copies of my files, and will also be collecting stories and interviews for CAS RADIO which will be posted to the internet off my site.

Just to let you know I will be setting up in Ottawa soon, have a sign printed on Yellow Plastic Board, with Black Text saying "CAS RADIO".

I will send a permit request to the city of Ottawa Friday, then will begin in the next week or so to be on the street at Rideau and Sussex in front of 10 Rideau the Ministry Of Community, Children and Family Services.

You can contact me by phone for messages at 1-613-731-3707.

I noticed some visitors to my site from the John Howard Society recently and in the past and would love to hear from you. I know there are a high percentage of inmates who have been in foster care and would like to make this issue known.
