Update - April 23, 2009
My City Councillor decided to forward my letter to my MPP's Office and shortly afterwards I was contacted to arrange an appointment to speak with him. The meeting was short but he decided to take this to higher ground.
There was so much more that I would have liked to bring to his attention, as per my blogs, but I didn't have the opportunity. I really wanted to tell him I've been looking for full time work for six years but all I could find was temp assignments and that I'm now on EI because the situation has gotten worse and that if things don't improve by the time my EI claim expires I will apply for welfare. I owe it all to York Region Children's Aid Society, the Newmarket Courthouse, the lawyers who dug my grave and the rest of the authorities who did their part. This is what happens to mothers who keep their children home from school with terminal illnesses in Aurora/Newmarket.
Well, the original letter was sent on February 1st, 2009, and almost three months have passed without the situation changing. Does a City Councillor or an MPP have enough authority to pick up the phone and tell the Police Department to follow up and make sure I connect with my daughters?
