  1. Thanks, Andrew for your support. The letter was published on Sunday. On Monday I got an e-mail from a Mom with a child with CP. On Tuesday, I got a phone call from one of the trustees of the school board, suggesting that we run this past the schools! The plot THICKENS. I must add that Norman put me up to writing the letter when he was in Vancouver and Roxy & I met him for lunch. He was right. Some feathers must be ruffled or nothing happens.
