Craig,

I went down on Sept 20th, 2007, and applied for my residential school compensation for common experience for the five years I spent in the St Philips Residential School in Keeseekoose Saskatchewan.

I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work yourself, Darcy Merkur, Alan Farrer and others in your firm put into ending one of Canada's most tragic legacies. I truly believe, (as a person who was on hand to see the day to day dealing with the federal government), that without your firm's relentless pursuit to end this legal and often painful experience, that it may not have been settled. You and your firm should take a bow and pat yourselves on the back for a great job well done.

So again, I want to thank you and your firm for all you have done on behalf of us survivors. Many don't realize the work your company put into settling this issue.
