To The Hon Dr.Edward Doherty:,
Member of The Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick for Saint John Harbour.
I would just like to take a moment to thank you for your gift of generosity toward the Second Annual Memorial for those who have died from their addiction to the Government run Video Lottery Terminals.
It is with great regret that I must inform you I will be declining your offer as mentioned in the above Gift to make a donation in my name to Romero House, as I m only a spokesperson for those who have fallen victim to the addiction of Video Lottery Terminals and who longer have their voice.
But would respectfully ask that you still make your generous offer to Romero House but in the names of Mr.& Mrs. Donald Bishop of Saint John N.B. as they have paid a much greater price from “The “Community Casino” or “Video Lottery Terminal Exploitation Program” than I have.
My life can slowly be put back together and my relations with Family members and Friends can heal with time.
I strongly believe that they have suffered the ultimate price with the loss of their Son
( Eric Leonard Bishop) To this community disease that is indeed run by the Government of New Brunswick .
I would also like to take this opportunity to Thank you very much for thinking of those who have past away under these conditions and am looking forward to your new interests and support on this issue.
But we must keep this issue in the forefront to make any and all head ways to better the control of their use with stricter guidelines on rules and regulations as well as their set up within those establishments in which they are used.
Also I am looking forward to furthering our discussion over the phone on Wednesday night about whether or not it is possible to take another look at reviewing the 7 year old questionable Referendum in which these Terminals fall solely under Provincial control and be kept all throughout this Province.
To see whether or not there is room for implementing some sort of change to allow the Municipalities to hold their own vote on whether or not cities can decide for themselves if they want to continue this community despair that comes with having these machines throughout their City establishments but receive no compensation to help with the downfall of those said communities which suffer the most from their non-return losses in Community revenue.
Thank you very much for finally giving a bit of your time & attention to this matter and I am looking forward to any future help on this issue that you may be able to supply.

Yes, this news hit me really hard. I was really down for a couple of days.
A young ordained Priest dead at the young age of 31 years old.
He found out that he had cancer in December and died six weeks later.
He was a wonderful individual and missed by many.
My deepest sympathy to his family in Quebec during this difficult day.
For the new readers who weren’t around this blog one year ago?
You can click below and read the blogs I wrote about this sad episode.
I believe that most will agree that today’s God’s Minute would be appropriate to be posted on the front blog.
It is written; IF I SAY, 'I WILL FORGET MY COMPLAINT, I
WILL CHANGE MY EXPRESSION, AND SMILE.'
( JOB 9:27 * NIV )
Now we all have days when we feel overwhelmed
with life's many problems. However complaining about
then doesn't change a thing! So why not smile instead
of complain, for it is said; "Smile and the whole World
smiles with you, frown and you frown alone!"
Now what better way to find a smile than to laugh with
joy. So enjoy today's message, and let it be said; OUR
MOUTHS WERE FILLED WITH LAUGHTER, OUR
TONGUES WITH SONGS OF JOY. For THE LORD HAS
DONE GREAT THINGS FOR US, AND WE ARE FILLED
WITH JOY. ( PSALM 126:2-3 )
Therefore Charles, today's message is one that was
sent to us by one of our Dear Subscribers. It will not only
cause a laugh or two, it may try your Bible knowledge a
little as well! It is titled:
