Time to Party ? Time to Mourn? Time to ACT!

There’s a party going on! Yep, no doubt there will be much backslapping, cheering and mutual aggrandizing at LCHS today and deservedly so. Well done Strooband, Kushner, Davidson et al, you did it. You and your one minute one dollar proxies won the day.

We Did It! We Won!

We Did It! We Won!

CONGRATULATIONS, now let the killing commence

It had NOTHING to do with animal welfare, NOTHING. The LCHS AGM was all about sticking it to the taxpayers and donors of St Catharines. It was nothing more than a group of vindictive, immature, spiteful , egotistical, small minded, morally bankrupt individuals more concerned with maintaining a death grip on their pathetic “positions” than caring for the well being of animals.

The meeting had been choreographed for weeks and in the end, mission accomplished. Had this “operation been carried out with any degree of ethics or responsibility or with even an iota of decency I would not be as bothered but it was a case of pure and simple bullying. Apparently Roberts Rules of Order, the Ontario Corporations Act and a specific motion of City Council are of no consequence to the mighty demagogues of LCHS. Apparently there is one set of rules for we, the unwashed masses and then there is the golden rule for LCHS. “He who owns the gold rules and in this case the gold was the purchased proxies.

Sorry, I just cannot conjure up the energy to go through the whole charade again.

To those beautiful healthy, treatable dogs and cats that have been killed in the last ten years – OVER 25,000, think about it, TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND, we tried. To those thousands of healthy, treatable dogs and cats that will be killed at LCHS, we tried.

Number 9, number 9, number 9…….

On December 3rd, 2012, the following letter was sent to the entire Board of Directors and the Executive Director of LCHS.

As of this writing, I have not received a reply from anyone on the Board of Directors to indicate that a meeting has been scheduled or that there is any intention on their part to do so as promised on Nov. 21st 2012.

Once more the Board of Directors and Management of LCHS have virtually slapped the public across the face.

I would point out this letter is number 9 in a row I have sent to the entire B of D and Management that has been completely ignored..  It has become very clear along with being total devoid of any integrity and ethics, we may now add a total complete lack of common decency, courtesy and good manners within the Board of Directors and Management of LCHS .

Pr_077_-_TRI_-_21_11_10_-_009THIS is very interesting. On Nov. 25th, ED Kevin Strooband was a guest on the Dave McMahon radio show. On that show Strooband stated the volunteers would be approved for membership at the meeting “in two weeks.” Now I find it odd that Strooband would know this when I know for a fact hat at least 3 Directors had absolutely no knowledge of this. Isn’t it a bit strange that Strooband would know this info two weeks before the meeting an only 4 days after these same volunteers applications had been deferred?

It gets even more strange. The Dave McMahon show releases podcasts of all of the shows with in 24 hours of broadcast. This was not the case with the Kevin Strooband hour of power show. When asked why, McMahon told me it was because the person that does the download was out of town. Okay, I’ll accept that. On Monday Dec. 3rd, McMahon sent me an email to tell.me the show was now available on podcast. Uh uh, no it is not. The podcast of Nov 25th is the only podcast since last May that does not play, (file not found). No doubt there is a perfectly good explanation for this and all shall be rectified very soon. Too bad that we are all not able to hear Strooband’s comments, especially regarding the volunteers’ applications for membership. As soon as this little “glitch” is cleared up, I will let you know.

 Ms. Davidson,

It is my understanding, on November 21st a decision was made to have the Board of Directors meet in two weeks from the aforementioned date. By my calendar that would suggest that a meeting of the Board of Directors of LCHS will be held on Wednesday December 5th.

As you know Mr. Kushner wisely moved to make all Board meeting of LCHS open and transparent. You are also quite cognizant that there are a number of people interested in attending this board meeting.

Please confirm the date, time and location of the promised Board of Directors meeting by return email as soon as is practicable.

Ms. Davidson, I would respectfully request YOU show a little respect and courtesy and reply to this email YOURSELF. I shall look forward to YOUR early reply

With regards

Julia McLaren

FYI- the references to Ms. Davidson reply to this letter herself harkens back to a previous correspondence. I wrote to Ms. Davidson only to receive a reply written on her behalf by her lackie, go to boy, secretary, peon, Kevvy. Nice huh

Tim Denis of CKTB 610 radio is right. “Something stinks” and I don’t just mean the pile of dead skunks at LCHS!S
