It looks like PDD is pushing funding cuts to service providers. I wouldn't want to tell you what to do but there is a list of all the MLA's in the province and there e-mail accounts so if you would like to talk with them they are available to you and you can explain what the cuts actually mean.

See the attached documents for more information.

It's been a long time coming but the new CASS website has finally been launched to CASS office staff for round of internal testing.

Please take some time to explore the functionality of the site and let me know what you think. If all goes well I plan to launch the website publically in mid January.
