Dear Mr. Rick Chiarelli, Councilor Ward 8
My name is John Pacheco. I am resident of Ward 8 and a local social conservative activist. I am the director of Social Conservatives United (www.catholic-legate.com) and an occasional politician. I ran in the last Federal Election as an independent candidate for Ottawa West Nepean. I received 905 votes. My wife Lara and I have four daughters ranging from 4 months to eight years old.
Yesterday, my wife was searching for some books on Christian saints for the upcoming Advent season on the Ottawa Public Library’s website. On the link at the top of the page, there is a tab entitled “Kid’s Search”. After clicking on this tap, she was taken to a search screen to fill in the pertinent information on the relevant book or resource. After typing in the abbreviation for saint ‘st.’, she was taken to the screen which listed all of the relevant books on this topic.
This is one of the entries she discovered:
The little black book for girlz : a book on healthy sexuality / St. Stephen’s Community House.
Toronto : Annick Press Ltd., c2006.
ISBN: 9781550379549 (pbk.) :
1550379542 (pbk.) :
Description: 208 p. : ill. ; 21 cm.
Notes: Includes index.
Related name(s): St. Stephen’s Community House (Toronto, Ont.)
Added Title: Little black book for girls
This book covers material which any reasonable observer or parent would find obscene and simply unacceptable. The book includes a chapter entitled “My First Time F***ing a Girl” and provides explicit instructions on how to perform oral, anal and other sex acts. It is also, needless to say, a propaganda piece for the gay political agenda.
To read more about this book, please visit this link:
The purpose of this letter is to ask you what concrete steps you are going to take as our Councilor to remove this filth from our publicly funded library. Furthermore, I would like to know what disciplinary action you are going to recommend against the person or person(s) who were responsible for making our public library into an environment of sexual corruption and perversion rather than an environment of learning.
I have blind copied this letter to my entire email list which is quite substantial. I am asking the recipients of this email to spread the word about this issue to their email lists and so forth and so on. I have carbon copied this letter to the other two candidates, Mr. Brett Delmage and Ms. Laura Lee Doube and invite them to offer a response as well.
Since this matter affects not only Ward 8 but the entire Ottawa area, I encourage all voters to make this an election “wedge” issue by calling the candidates in their wards and putting the question to them: “Do you support this book being in the kids section of the Ottawa Public Library and if not, what are you going to do about it and when?”
A list of candidates and their email addresses can be found here:
The mothers, fathers, and other concerned residents of Ward 8 will be waiting anxiously to know what your position is on this issue and what you plan to do. We are not interested in vague generalities. We want to know precisely what you are going to do and when you are going to do it. Rest assured, the candidate who most appropriately addresses this issue with the most measured and swift response that it deserves will be the one that gets our vote.
I must admit something to you. I am continually amazed at the depth of depravity our culture continues to accept, and even more amazed at the lack of leadership from our elected politicians to reverse this trend.
I have posted this letter on my blogsite which can be accessed here:
I will also post your response as well as the responses of the other candidates for the benefit of the voters in Ward 8 so that they may be kept informed of developments.
Since the election is this Monday November 13, I suggest you respond sooner rather than later.
Yours very truly,
Ottawa Resident, Ward 8
