Thanks for the heads up, Donna.

If specifics are raised and deem a response, we will do so.

Subject: part 1 tomorrow [These addresses are for ECMAS-Calgary's vice president and president]


We've heard that CHED radio and the Journal have been sniffing around, and

so we are going  tomorrow with a short (500 word) newstory to ensure we're

the first to report on this.  There's no room in the paper tomorrow for the

longer feature (2,000 words), but we expect that to follow the next day.


Tomorrow's  news story does not mention Mr. Christensen, and does not

discuss the issue of Mr. Adams meeting paralegal clients through ECMAS

Edmonton.  If you get calls from other reporters, it's entirely up to you

whether you want to initiate a discussion of  those issues with them.

[After rushing both ECMAS groups for a week with alleged internal deadlines, she now cites outsiders as the reason for haste. But the only way other media outlets could have been "sniffing around" was for someone such as Ms. Malenfant to have contacted them first. In fact, I had heard from several people that she was contacting them, urging them to look into these matters because The Post was doing so. But no Alberta media contacted anyone in either branch of ECMAS until right after the first Post article had made those matters news. And even then, as we will see later, Ms. Malenfant was unable at that time to convince any Edmonton media to print or air a story involving me or my book.]          [Next]
