Dear ERDC (Electronic Rights Defence Committee) Member,
You may have heard the story that was broken through the Montreal press that playwright and freelancer David Fennario, who is our class representative in the case against Southam et al, has been struck with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (www.guillain-barre.com/overview.html), an unpredictable but non-fatal condition leaving him very ill and undergoing treatment until 2003. For those in the Montreal area, a benefit is being held, “Celebrating the Works of David Fennario,” at the Centaur Theatre (453 rue St. François-Xavier (Metro Place des Armes)) on September 9, at 8:00 pm. Admission is $15.00.
Further information about this, as well as the status of our lawsuit, and any meetings we will hold, will be forthcoming. As ERDC information officer, I am setting up a mailing list for the purpose of desseminating news relevant to the Montreal-based lawsuit, so that no one will receive e-mail they would rather not see.
Thank you for your support,
Jack Ruttan, ERDC Secretary and Information Officer
