Liberal MPP for Ottawa West – Nepean, and Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.

Jim Watson’s office phone number 613-721-8075. Please call Mark and say Fred has no food and will be on the street this Friday night, September 19th.

Sue and Steven went into John’s Baird’s office and told Pam one of the employees in Baird’s office the Fred Timms case. Pam said she would inform John Baird. Please call John Baird at 613-990-7720. Ask Baird’s office what are they doing for Fred Timms.


Sue calls Dalton’s McGuinty’s offices

Sue called the South Ottawa of the Premier only to be told by Lauren in his office that the Ottawa-South office only helps McGuinty’s constituents in Ottawa-South only. Sue had to call McGuinty’s office in Toronto only to be told to call Emergency housing for Fred in Ottawa. The red tapes is getting longer and longer as we go.


Sue will call Alex Cullen’s office, Ottawa City councillor for Ottawa West tomorrow on Thursday, September 19th.


Does anyone really care about a blind man who is homeless? let’s wait and see what type of response we get from all these politicians. Some one has got to have heart and help Fred. His quality of life depends on having a roof over his head and some food in his stomach and peace of mind. Being homeless for almost 7 months have taken a toll on Fred Timms. Fred has kept his dignity and self respect in tact. Fred will fight as long as it takes to get an apartment again. There is still lots of fight in Fred yet. Don’t under estimate this man. He won’t stop fighing until he gets housed. Fred has an incredible spirit and tenacity. A good man who sees through all the red tape. Fred is very intelligent and articulate. He knows what he wants and what he needs and communicate those issues very well.
