Ouchhhh…..That’s hurts! Someone from NBPOWER calling my updates crap??? Boo Hoo Hoo…my feeling are hurt!
But I did tell this individual that their name isn’t on my list! You see the past month of December, I received an email from the hansard office and it had around 700 email addresses so sometime. I go to that site and send my update to everyone on that list! Hey? Anyway to spread the message!
Hey? My Blog or our blog < White Collar Irving Employee > received a 5 star rating for our little educated web site!
Here’s the comment-
Charles Leblanc ADHD Activist Ratings: 5

Bruce Jenkins, 2/18/2005

What a great site... If you would like to know what a true protester does with their time, visit this site. Great content from New Brunswick last source or real objective media.

Hey???? A five star rating??? That’s good!!! Anyway to spread the word of ADHD!!!!
I found out yesterday that a study in the states concluded that Ritalin causes cancer??? Here’s the story -

Small study ties Ritalin to higher cancer risk
Scientist hopes a larger look at drugs that treat
attention deficit will refute results
Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle

In a small but potentially alarming new study, local
scientists have linked the most popular drug used to
treat attention-deficit problems with increased risks
of cancer.


The study of 12 children on Ritalin found every one
experienced a significant increase in their level of
chromosome abnormalities — occurrences associated with
increased risks of cancer and other adverse health

"Assuming it holds up, this study doesn't mean these
kids are going to get cancer, but it does mean they're
exposed to an additional risk factor," said Marvin
Legator, a professor of environmental toxicology at
the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston
and the study's principal investigator and senior
author. "Smoking doesn't mean you'll get cancer. It's
a risk factor."

But Legator said the study was too small for Ritalin
to be considered a risk factor for cancer yet. He said
he hopes larger studies refute the finding.

The study is the first to look at the potential
chromosome-damaging effects associated with
methylphenidate, the generic name for Ritalin, the
most widely prescribed drug used to treat attention
deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Between 1991
and 1999, U.S. sales of Ritalin and its variants,
including Concerta and Metadata CD, increased more
than 500 percent.

The study, conducted by researchers at UTMB and UT
M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, will be published in an
upcoming edition of the journal Cancer Letters. It was
made available online Thursday.

Other medications cited
The study is just the latest to cast doubt on ADHD
medication. Earlier this month, Canadian regulators
suspended sales of Adderall amid reports of 20 deaths
of patients, including 12 children, taking the drug
between 1999 and 2003. In the same time period,
American regulators logged seven sudden deaths of
children taking Ritalin and Concerta. A third ADHD
drug, Strattera, can cause severe liver injury.

In the study, researchers drew blood from children
diagnosed with ADHD before they began taking Ritalin
and again three months after, then employed a method
of analysis that has detected 48 of the 53 known
carcinogens in humans. All the children — 10 boys and
2 girls averaging 8.5 years old — were taking normal

For all 12, blood analysis tests showed a twofold to
threefold increase in abnormalities in the
chromosomes, the bodies within cells that carry genes
and genetic information. Most consisted of chromosome
breaks, which are associated with an increased risk of

All people have chromosome abnormalities, typically
about 1 percent. The children in the study had levels
increased to 2 to 3 percent.

Legator said he was amazed by the consistency of the
findings, that all 12 children showed the same result.
But he and other investigators stressed that more
research needs to be done — for instance, researchers
didn't follow up so it's not known whether the
chromosome abnormalities are permanent or go into
repair once the patient goes off the drug.

Follow-up study planned
Study investigators said parents should respond
cautiously to the study and not take their child off
Ritalin if he or she is doing well. But Melissa Bondy,
an M.D. Anderson epidemiologist who was part of the
study, said she understood parents' natural reaction.

"My child was recently diagnosed with ADHD and it was
very difficult to decide to use medication after
knowing these results," said Bondy. "That's why we
need to do further research."

The investigators said they plan to propose a
follow-up study with hundreds of patients, multiple
sites and longer study periods. Although there are
millions of children on Ritalin, participation is
limited by the need to enroll patients before they
start treatment.

ADHD, the most common neurobehavioral disorder in
childhood, affects 4 to 12 percent of U.S. school-age
children. Symptoms include short attention span,
impulsive behavior and difficulty focusing.

Well? This story don't suprise me because hundreds of kids told me during the protest that they hated taking Ritalin because it hurts their tummy! Some kids do need it but under the orders of those racist members of the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission? Once they reach adulthood their lives are going to be ruined because they are labelled as close to mental retardation by the Government!
Speaking of Ritalin? Some Liberal MLA told me yesterday that the issue to have the education and Health standing Committee to do a study on the issue of Ritalin could be a good possibly!
It's all up to Bernard Lord I guess but after his staff made certain that I couldn't phone the premier on Voice of the Province last week?
Well? I don't believe the issue of ritalin will be studied! Once New Brunswickers don't have access to the Premier? Well? We have a problem.
Just a few weeks ago, I was told that the Premier was going around the Province to meet New Brunswickers but only members of the P.C. Party wasl be allowed to chat with Bernard Lord?
Well guess what? I wasn't invited and I'm a member of the Party so what gives here anyway?
We all dealing with a much higher force that we can believe. There's people sitting on a certain Lords of the Board Council that overlooks the going ons in the Province of New Brunswick!
I don't mean making fun of Bernard Lord. I mean the Lords like in England!!
I remember when I was a guest on Melanson Live < t.v. talk show > Anyway, the show was choosen for the best top ten call show of the year! They were going to replay the show during the Summer months.
Anyway, my show came on and 10 days later, I wrote a letter telling all the readers that my interview will be on television this evening!
Hey? Guess what? The show was cancel!!!
Last week, I wrote a letter telling you readers that I was going to confront Bernard Lord on the issue of Ritalin but in a different way? The next thing you know? I'm not allowed to call the show! So what I'm saying is this?
Someone with a lot of power is reading these updates because this cannot be a Coincidence?
You tell me????
I checked for the town of Tyler Texas on the and found it! I was certain that I drove my ten speed throught there in the 70s! I am so happy that I rode a ten speed across the states because I'm very famillar with the small towns!
What happen in Tyler you asked? Well? Someone was driven over the edge and he cracked up! He began a shooting spree and ended up dead!
What I find funny about this sad story that once he started shooting , Texans quickly ran out of their house with their own weapons! One of these individual was shot dead! It's funny how the Americans all have weapons in their homes.
New Brunswick is not immune to this and it's just a matter of time till something like this happens in this Province!
As God as my witness, I pray that it doesn't happen but you can just push a Human Being so far until he/she cracks up!
During my protest, I heard many angry stories from people who were down and out! I remember when Tim Smith was protesting in front of the Legislature. I told him that he's going to come face to face with a lot of strange people.
Hours later, I noticed a young girl yelling at poor Tim! It was very cold and I asked Tim what did the girl say?
He told me that she appraoched him and started to scream that bernard Lord was Gay!!!!
Tim was wondering what that had to do with his protest against the VLT'S???
I explain to him that nobody has the same way of thinking and everyone has their own little concerns or problems! Look at my case with those racist members of the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission?
They sent me a note with 5 lines only!!! They told me that my complaint was without merit! Hey? This was a huge blow to my life! They agreed with those Racist Irving Supervisor that Minorities can be hunted down and that Adults with ADHD are close to mental retardation!
Now mind you??? I said it before and I will say it again?
If the Government passed a law that Charles LeBlanc is not allowed to own a gun for the rest of his life even if he never own one in the past?
You know something? I would signed those papers because I know me!!! I will be too temped to use it and that exactly what could have happen to me once those racists members sent me that letter!
I didn't cross that line and I'm proud of myself!
But it's not everyone who thinks the same way that I do! Many would turned to drugs and alcohol and say- F@CK IT!!!!!! But not this proud ADHD individual! I will play their little games and continue to battle those racists members till the end of times!!!
As I said - I hope that I'm wrong but one of these days, the Government is going to push someone over that thin line! It's just a matter of time!!
Shit!!! Close to 900 words already..ok enough on that issue! Excuse the style of this update because I just write the darn thing and send it along on the information Highway!!! Leave a comment!! Don't be shy!!!!
