Letters to the court

I would like to thank all those who have emailed me and are writing letters to the court to object to Nortel's motion to terminate our benefits. There are a number of letters of objection already posted on the Epiq Systems website in the court dockets.

You can check them at

You can also click on the Epiq link in the right hand column and go to dockets to review the letters.

Some of these letters are heartbreaking. People on disability may end up in abject poverty and suffering as a result of the termination of their benefits. Families will be broken apart, and people may die as a result of this.

I urge everyone to take action and write to the courts as soon as possible. Time is short. You only have until July 6th to have your objection registered. Send your letters by registered mail to make sure they get there in time. It is no coincidence that the time frame to object is so short and hampered by the July 4th week end. It is a strategy by Nortel and their faceless lawyers.

Here we are celebrating July 4th and commemorating people who felt strongly about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. What a travesty that our benefits are being threatened and Nortel's lawyers are using that historical date to limit the time we have to respond and object.
