Dear Donna Laframboise: [The key point is below]--->
I am sorry to be responding to you so late; however, our meeting today has
been quite long and tiring. Ultimately, the Board of the
of ECMAS voted on three motions:
Text of Motion #1) As the Board of the Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS, we should
accept the resignation of [Tim] Adams as Vice President of
Chapter of ECMAS.
Results of Motion #1) [Tim] Adams' resignation as Vice President of the
Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS was accepted.
Text of Motion #2) As the Board of the Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS, we should
suspend [Tim] Adams as a member of the Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS.
Results of Motion #2) The motion to suspend [Tim] Adams as a member of the
Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS was not passed.
Text of Motion #3) As the Board of the Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS, we should
suspend Ferrel Christensen as a member of the Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS for
a period of three months and in this time investigate whether his views
conflict with the guiding principles and policies of E.C.M.A.S.
Results of Motion #3) There were two irregularities in the voting for this
issue and the board will need to reconvene to vote on this motion again.[Back]
Please note that ECMAS is an organization that deals with people who have
been falsely accused. The Board of the Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS has strong
reason to believe that some of the information that you provided to me (and
Michael Laberge) regarding [Tim] Adams was incorrect. The Board of the
Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS also has strong reason to believe that there were
statements that you made to me (and Michael Laberge) about Ferrel
book that were are also erroneous. The
Board of the
Chapter of ECMAS also understands that these incorrect statements may
constitute libel or slander. [With such emphatic statements as this one from the ECMAS-Edmonton president, the reporter can hardly claim to have misunderstood the situation. (Her suppression of everything said in opposition to her, including everything by him, has already been noted repeatedly here.) Just as she had done with his previous email to her, she didn't ask him any questions on, or even respond to anything in, this one by him.] [Back]
I have reason to believe that details of [Tim] Adams' conviction was not as
you had described to me and that it occurred about four years ago, before he
became involved with ECMAS. I am told that in the last two years, Mr. Adams
has donated an incredible amount of time to help out with our support group
and has been an extremely valuable resource for people who have been
victimized by the biased divorce system. In our board recent meeting, the
Board of the Edmonton Chapter of ECMAS has passed a motion to suggest new
changes to our bylaws which would need to be voted on and ratified by our
members. The changes to our bylaws would include a new bylaw that would
rule that before any future election all nominations would need to be
submitted to the current board at least one month before the election and
that all nominees would be required to indicate any previous criminal
convictions to the board. The board would then determine whether these
convictions were serious enough to reject any nominee from running for a
Please note that ECMAS is a volunteer organization that does not obtain any
money from the government. We have almost no resources other than donations
and membership dues from our members. Many non-custodial parents have been
ruined by the biased and often unfair family court system.
I sincerely hope that you do not go ahead with your story as I believe that
it will be very destructive to our society in
that we have worked hard to set up over the last few years. I also believe
that the source for your story has less than honest with the "facts" and
with her motivation.
