Jason has Given Me a number of reasons to Quest-Ion his competence as a manager; initially, his failure to assist Me with My professional Goals by denying My request for a two man dorm, his failure to respond to My complaints of corporate policies endorsed and enforced by front line staff, security, and police that trespass upon the rights and dignity of clients, the People of Canada and/or fail to reflect The Salvation Army’s Mission Statement as an Organization. Jason Prevost also failed to respond to My request for contact information for the lady from the ByWard market that stood to be of Great benefit to My political and professional Goals, refused to extend My time in the ‘Life Skills’ program so that I would have appropriate working environment and sleeping quarters to prepare My defence and review My disclosure in Court, and, most importantly, his inability to manage a facility worthy of human dignity; the whole building is literally crawling with roaches and a breeding ground for bedbugs that Jason Prevost is now Willfully responsible for spreading the epidemic throughout the city of Ottawa… And he doesn’t even care. In fact, he actually said to Me once, “We’re not the problem, Sean, it’s the clientele we cater to.” Really? No, Jason, it is Your incompetence in running a clean facility.
With no further ado, My first e-mail to Jason is to address an intolerable bed bug epidemic and to as King to him one last time for the contact information from the lady who expressed interest in My Work last year. I still believe I could use that lead to My advantage if Jason would just Give Me her contact information and forward Me the e-mail message he ‘allegedly’ sent her. Either Jason lied and deliberately sabotaged the opportunity, or he is telling the truth and has the information in his e-mail correspondence for the contact in Quest-Ion and is Willfully withholding it from Me. Either way, it doesn’t say much for Jason’s character.
Subject: Working for the [human] rights and dignity of the Canadian People

You will notice that I have taken the time to forward a letter I writ to Caroline last year after she had asked Me to explain why I felt painting and determination to protect human rights qualified as ‘real’ work so that I might qualify for a slightly more secure and dignified living arrangement (two man locked dorm for security of My paintings while I continue to prepare My art exhibition). I also recall taking the time to write You two well written letters explaining My determination to protect the rights of those subject to social welfare and improve the conditions of those subject to emergency shelters like the Salvation Army. You denied My request and insisted that what I am doing is not ‘real work’ and therefor does not qualify for a two man dorm. You also refused My request to assist Me in finding a more secure location to store My paintings while I work with Caroline to secure suitable, dignified housing.
I have now been here over a year and can tell You that those subject to living at the Ottawa Booth Centre are subject to deplorable conditions that are not fit for human life. A landlord would not be able to rent a room if it were in the same condition as any of these dorms. The walls of the dorms have not been washed in over a year and every dorm is seriously infected with bedbugs – it has become an epidemic and I believe it is such an epidemic that the Ottawa Booth Centre is jeopardising the health and well being of the entire city, as NOTHING is being done to put an end to the epidemic or to contain it and prevent it from spreading throughout the city of Ottawa. Even Your staff have complained to Me that they are concerned their own homes are going to be infected.
I have tried very hard to work with You in as Honourable a manner as I know how, explaining to You that the People of Canada have rights that are protected by law and that with Your help connecting Me to the city council members or other people of influence with whom You do business, I would be able to help You attain the funding necessary to improve many of the shelter conditions and get the People of Canada into a living situation worthy of human dignity. You have failed to take Me seriously or connect Me with anyone who might be able to make a difference. I believe the living situation here has become so serious, the press and mayor need to be made aware before the bed bug epidemic spreads throughout the entire city. I have a plethora of photos to validate My claims and would like Give You an opportunity to work with Me to remedy this problem before I take the matter to Caroline, the public relations officer and the media. The People of Canada need to know how deplorable the living conditions here really are.
Also, I did ask You more than three times to forward Me the e-mail of the lady who inquired about My work last summer. You informed Me that You had contacted her twice via e-mail and were waiting to hear back from her. I would like that contact information as I do not understand why it was not given to Me in the first place and why You decided to take it upon Yourself. I asked You to provide Me with copies of the e-mail correspondence and although You insist You did message her and do have her e-mail, You have yet to provide Me with the information and I am tired of as King to You for it.
I Will begin posting photos of the atrocities I witness here and release them to the press if You fail to respond to this letter and take My determination to protect the rights of the Canadian People a little more seriously.
I hope this day finds You well,
Love and Blessings,
House of von Dehn,
Hand of Stephen,
Kingdom of God
P.S. – I also heard they are spraying pesticide in the basement today and that the residents will be allowed to return to their dorms at 6:00? Usually it is a minimum of 48 hours before a man can safely return to a dorm that has had pesticide sprayed, and what difference will it make if those who have been removed from the dorm for the day return with their backpacks and clothes filled with bedbugs? You are NOT preventing or containing the issue, it needs to be addressed before it becomes an epidemic for the entire city. Try spending one night subject to the conditions of those on the second floor or basement and then tell Me how passionate You are about making things better. Right now I don’t believe You care but that’s not My concern. You, as manager of the Ottawa Booth Centre are liable and responsible for the living conditions Your clients are subject to.
