    I’d recommend that you also add the link to my post on neutrality… does it exist? CLEARLY it does not, in NSD’s situation.

    Thanks for doing what you do best… cast a light on audism and the injustice inherent in audism.

    Shel – Done and thank u and all u r doing on the NSD front

    Don – YEP! that Ad rocks! i believe that long ago the NAD took out ads on certain positions (if i remember right) but i havent seen anything like this Canadian Deaf one in a long while – Stand tall and Strong Canada – dont let those waves knock out and wash out a Deaf school and our Deaf students without a mighty fight!
