why are you reading this ? I lack any desire for politics (yes and I live in Ottawa), I've lived in a few countries and I'm glad to be home again. I am not the type to Twitter or blog but here I am trying to learn how because I have found something I feel strongly about. I love my children, as most mothers do, and feel that the present school system in Ottawa Public ( oh and Ottawa Catholic too) have some antiquated polices when it comes to child safety. Yes, have your own opinions on if we should have Criminal checks for parents /grandparents.... but at least we are discussing it. A topic that for the past 11 years (since the policy was written) it hasn't been talked about in Ottawa. So here I am. Not wanting attention, not wanting to be known, just wanting to do my own thing... and here I am an Advocate. How in the world did I get here ???
