Mr.Gilles Patry, President
Mr.Robert Major, V.P.Academic

Dear Sirs:

I would like to forward this letter initially sent only to Mr. Lalonde commending the University of Ottawa for offering the SCI 1101 "Activism Course" but also to my disappointment for the expulsion of the two Foster boys because of their young age. I am hoping that there may be an exemption due to the course material not requiring prerequisites and also to their active participation in the class.

Thank you both in advance for considering this letter. I would be interested in your comments.
