YOU MUST GIVE YOUR LIFE AND SOUL TO THE EVIL IRVING EMPIRE!!!!
DON’T FORGOT TO READ MY PAST UPDATES AT
Ok..not much going on but I did learn something
new last week! I was chatting with someone who works
for the Federal Government on Forestry.
Did you know that there is no such thing as
original Crown land?
He told me that all of all crown land has already
been clear-cut! I didn’t know this and I find it
amazing and we have cut all of our crown land!
Ok.. The Minister of Finance is once again going
around the Province to listen to New Brunswickers
WHAT A WASTE OF TAXPAYERS MONEY!
He has all his staff in high paying motel and
enjoys all the best restaurants!
I guess last evening in Edmunston not too many
people showed up because it’s a waste of Time. He
makes certain that his meetings are not in the City
but in an area where the ordinary New Brunswickers can
attend because they don’t have a vehicle!
THEY HAVE MONEY TO GO ON VACATION AROUND THE
PROVINCE BUT NONE TO STUDY OUR KIDS!!!! THIS
GOVERNMENT IS REALLY OUT OF CONTROL!!!
They’re going to meet at the Irving Forestry
Complex in Fredericton and sorry I won’t be there
because it’s too far! Anyone going at the meeting?
Send me a note!
They always seem to make in Irving’s buildings!!!
I will say to the Minister that those Racist
Members of the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission
must be eliminated therefore saving a lot of money!
Those people are totally useless and should be
eliminated at any cost or at what cost??? They are in
irving pockets and sure are not in New Brunswckers
Oppps getting angry again…
I met the Boyfriend of the new Chairperson of the
Human Rights Commisison. His name is Eric Mackenzie
and I was surprised that he chatted with me? Maybe he
doesn’t read my updates!
Yesterday, I was walking around with a young girl
from Japan! She’s doing a story on me and followed me
with a video camera around the Legislature and inside
the premises. I believe it will be on the Internet in
the near future.
We talked about the Evil Irving Empire and those
racist members at the Comission but I don’t believe
she will used those statements in her story! Lets not
forget that the Irvings gave Millions of dollars to
train those young Journalists! They must gave their
soul and mind to the Evil Irving Empire!!!! Sure look
like Germany all over again!!!!
She sent me this little note of what she’s going
to share with her classmates. Here it is-
On a beautiful Monday afternoon, the sun comes in
through the window on the legislature building. He
sits at the computer in the library as usual
after the weekend that he hates.
He starts typing with his index fingers
and sends messages through the world.
Charles LeBlanc was born of an Acadian French
father and Scottish mother.
He is an energetic 45-year old man with light
blue-colored eyes and light brown hair. People in
Fredericton have become familiar with him since he
moved from Saint John in 2003.
He is the man who spent 180 days living in a
tent on the lawn of the legislature to represent the
rights of kids who have ADHD.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is
an overactive and inattentive mental condition
starting in childhood.
Doctors often prescribe the drug Ritalin to
increase attentiveness and decrease hyperactivity.
When he first found out that he had ADHD? He wrote
a letter in the Reader of the Telegraph Journal. They
put his picture on the front page and said Charles
LeBlanc deals with ADHD.
He received over 40 calls from the parents having
kids with ADHD, crying. They told him that they
noticed how their kids had been treated by school
His pharmacist friend told him last year there
4,000 Ritalins prescribed in a 10 month period. This
is only from one Pharmacy only in the Saint John area.
He estimates over 10,000 kids has been diagnosed
and forced to be on Ritalin. He adds many of these
kids are on Ritalin and don't have ADD or ADHD!
As an adult taking Ritalin, we are known to be
limited, he says. My question is that why they are
giving Ritalin to children.
He thinks that ADHD is over-diagnosed and that
doctors shouldn't prescribe Ritalin to so many
Because they will have a limited future.
What has to be talked is about children, he
says. They have a full of energy to be employed. They
should not be limited.
Charles Leblanc has ADHD. He was diagnosed six
years ago after years of having difficulties in his
various jobs because of his high energy levels. He has
experiences been fired because of his energetic
He earned lower wages even he worked as much as
When I found out I had ADHD, I was so happy. he
says. I was dancing in the air. I thought ADHD was an
advantage, not a disability.
He noticed, however, the public had a different
version about ADHD.
People having ADHD and being on Ritalin, are
limited. Some of them are not allowed to drive a car,
for example. He decided to bring his concern
to the government.
I want the government to study on the issue of
They woke up a sleeping giant.
In 2001, his friend gave him a idea to bring
awareness to the issue of Ritalin. Why not pitch a
on the front lawn of the Legislature?
The following summer, he carried out the idea for
12 days. He was on a hunger strike and the Government
quickly forced him from the lawn.
He restarted camping at the same place on June 17,
2003. Two weeks would be enough, he expected. But, it
took 180 days until a minister invited him to a
meeting to address his concern.
In my mind, thousands of kids were crying and
asking for help in front of my tent. This is what kept
He submitted a petition with 10,000 signatures.
Some people agreed with him, but they didn’t sign
on his petition and said they worked for the
He found Fredericton was a bureaucratic
When you do something like this, you make a lot of
enemies, he says.
That is not everyone who's gonna support what
He had camped on the lawn for 40 days before the
Brunswickan covered the issue for the first time.
Nobody knew he was still there.
The Daily Gleaner took 50 days to cover him
protesting at the legislature.
The next day, it reported someone took his tent.
The following day, they wrote that a person gave
him another tent.
LeBlanc says those coverings made him easier to
correct signatures. They raised people awareness.
One of his means of protesting is making people
aware of the issue. He aims at educating the public
what is going on here.
When a politician found out his grand daughter had
ADHD, he decided not to get her Ritalin because of
I succeeded one person not to be on this pill,
he says. I did my job.
He is hoping to publish a book titled - The last
the true protesters.
It is all about the protest at the legislature.
People wouldn't imagine themselves living in a
He doesn't expect someone would copy him camping
front of the legislature over six months.
He imagines what the long-term effect would be. He
says ADHD itself doesn't scare us, but taking Ritalin.
Prescription of drug is the major problem in this
province he says.
It has to be addressed. What kind of kids we will
have in the next generation is that they are all high
They are not my kids and I will never see them, he
says. But I will fight for them. This is all for kids,
Making a living is not easy for him. He is now
living in a boarding house with a TV and a
To keep himself being occupied, he goes to the
library in the legislature to check his emails,
follows the news, volunteers at the soup kitchen,
and walks around the city to see people.
I don’t like weekends because nobody is on the
streets he says.
Over 600 names are on the list to send email back
and forth. He never misses updating his homepage
telling viewers what the protest is not done but
continues on the Information Highway.
He won’t pitch a tent there any more, but he’ll
keep on protesting but in a different style.
How long I’m gonna go at it? He questioned
I don’t know. But, my strong faith keeps me going.
I am a strong believer there is a reason for
What my reason??? I just don’t know.
I’m gonna live here for a long time because when
my Day of my judgment arrives?
I’m gonna ask him a lot of questions and I don’t
believe that he wants to listen to me. I might be here
for a long while yet!
