Hello again. Well I have met with Mary McConville (Executive Director of CCAS) , Barb Myland (Disclosure Worker), Alex Duncan (chief legal counsel), my brother Ron Dunn (former crown ward) and myself.

The meeting lasted approximately three hours, and nothing was settled on the records issue other than the fact that now I have learned that the CCAS is bound by policies that Mary and Alex Duncan are going to assist me in finding out how I can go about getting some change to those policies.

I have asked to change the policies that are the CCAS's policies, as well as how to change the policies that the Ministry of Community, Family, and Children's Services have set.

At the moment, I am back in Ottawa, and will continue to post myself outside of the CAS Ottawa for collection of stories from anyone who wishes to say something about CAS, the Ministry, or any of their policies, or practices and life experience stories that they wish to be aired on CKCU 93.1 FM.

I can be reached at 1-613-731-3707 if you wish, or by email at afterfostercare@lycos.com
