Hi All!

I forgot to post the Vancouver Coastal Health reply to the submission of my resume for the facilitator position. It should also be noted that I never submitted my name for the Task Group.

However, a registered nurse who is also a federal health canada employee and a longtime on again-off again sex worker did and her resume was also rejected.

From Chan Drepaul there is some anonymous reference to my supposed "interactions" with former staff and affliates. All I can say is that I resigned from the advisory board because the former co-ordinator was shutting out advisory members from any input. He would continually cancel meetings. Yet the mandate when the program was struck was the reccommendation to have transsexual/transgendered individuals comprise the advisory body.

So everyone please see the post down below to me from Chan Drepaul who is the new co-ordinator who came from somewhere in Ontario in the last few months.

I will be re-posting other posts to Vancouver Coastal Health in the next few days on this matter-- JLH


Jamie Lee, my apologies for the slow response. I've been talking with many members of the VCH/THP team to come up with some answers. For the facilitator position, we have found that it would not be in line with the mission/purpose of the drop-in to accept applications from current sex trade workers. Also, based on past interactions with VCH/THP staff and affiliates, we would not be able to invite your participation on the Task Group. Please let me know if you have any questions.
