Hi Rob,

Regrettably I didn't receive the notice of AGM via email. It was eventually forwarded to me by someone else. I'm
wondering if no one in the EDA or party managed to sort that out yet.

Can you please tell me who has registered to vie for a position, so far?

Are you stepping down, along with all of Mike's campaign team, from the spots you held on the EDA? Or are
some of you seeking re-election?

I've heard that Mike declined to be the candidate in subsequent elections. Can you please confirm this for me as
well?

Also, I wish to understand the status of Jared Nolan with our EDA. Will this AGM replace him democratically, as
part of a natural process? Or did the executive hold a meeting to revoke his position as Vice President, due to
the current charges?

I'm also concerned that due to the ongoing criminal investigation, the SGFLRA and LPC should make some
attempt to include a Vulnerable Sector screening intervention, to run for a position. I realize this is above and
beyond the status quo, but our VP was charged with child luring, child porn and he allegedly abused his power at
the local hospital. We couldn't know if that abuse of power extended to children, families or contacts in our riding
association until the investigation is complete.

Moreover, Mr. MacEachern and Mr. Kerk are close associates of Jared Nolan. The three of them work(ed)
together at the Alliston hospital (location of these heinous allegations), in addition to the election campaign and
Simcoe-Grey EDA. I understand that Jeff Kerk departed the Alliston hospital for a different facility, around the
same time Mr. Nolan was criminally charged. It causes concern that Kerk managed the hospital records abused
by Nolan to select (alleged) victims, and the timing of his departure is causing suspicious chatter in our
communities. Therefore, I don't believe the SGFLRA has the public's trust, until the police task force finishes
clearing and/or implicating criminal associates.
Please let me be very clear that I am making no accusations regarding possible associates. I continue to
respect the Rule of Law and our Charter, quite deeply. But the fact remains that we have to weigh the public's
safety, through the Liberal organization, against the presumption of innocence. This isn't about allegations of
petty theft or even drunk driving. It's now about more than one girl and the situation is so serious that a special
police task force was tapped to investigate – above and beyond the local authorities. It's about the heinous
abuse of children's information, and being an executive with the Simcoe-Grey Liberals puts plenty of youth info
in the hands of who we elect, without any checks or balances to protect them. I also note the task force informed
the court that this investigation continues and may be part of a wider probe, of alleged victims and/or criminal
associates. Nolan's bail conditions were the harshest possible and he remains under house arrest, because the
task force presented private evidence of the case expanding.

Needless to say, I am officially requesting that all prospective executives vying for a position at the AGM should
have to provide the riding or party with a clean Vulnerable Sector check – upon application and/or before the
election on February 20th. I'm asking that you forward my request to the current executive and the Liberal Party
of Canada, as the riding president. In response to any objections, I reiterate the above and point out that nearly
all volunteer organizations require a criminal record check to participate. Many, if not most, also require the
Vulnerable Sector clearance. This is not an unreasonable requirement and failing to do so at this point may be a
breach of fiduciary duty, considering the details we're aware of. We know that an accused sexual predator is/was
an active part of the EDA during the time of allegation. We know the investigation is probing for a possible
network of associates, and two of Mr. Nolan's hospital colleagues are additionally close friends, through the
EDA. If this isn't enough reason to ensure the safety of youths within the SGFLRA, then I would be sadly
astonished. A clean Vulnerable Sector check can only validate the subsequent executive and thereby restore the
public trust.

I only have one more question, and I do apologize this is a difficult conversation to have to have with anyone.
But can you please tell me who edited the SGFLRA website the night Jared Nolan was charged? His name was
removed at the same time mine was and I wish to know how this came about. Also, Mr. Nolan's LinkedIn account
was edited at the same time, to say he wasn't with the EDA any longer. Do you know if the same person edited
both pages?

Thanks very much for your time and assistance. Please accept my letter is written with respect and humility, and
that I never would have chosen an issue like this to manage. Like everyone else I'm concerned to see what
happens and I'm half holding my breath until it does. But I would be negligent if I didn't insist on party oversight
with extra caution (and perhaps a new party norm), as this lurid drama unfolds.

In the meantime I hope you're well and I need to hear back from you before the EDA AGM registration deadline
(February 6th is coming fast).

Yours very truly,
Amy MacPherson
