Zero DOSLNIT Online

[0 DOSLNIT logo]

For our tenth reunion in 1991, I put together a newsletter consisting of information and gossip about who in our class was doing what. It was my intention to keep publishing it on at least an annual basis, but that clearly hasn't happened. Therefore and in response to a number of pointed requests, I'm setting up this web page as a successor to the newsletter.

Here's how it works. I'll accept small images (100x100 to 200x200 pixels) and comparable amounts of HTML/text (1-2K) from each classmate and post them below. E-mail them to me at poslfit@gmail.com. If you don't send me anything, I'll work with what I can find from other sources. Be warned that I still have all my yearbooks, and feel free too to submit material on behalf of other classmates.

APARTMENT HUNTING is a dark romantic comedy set in Kensington Market. It was shot by Derek Rogers (CUBE, NEW WATERFORD GIRL) and production designed by Kathleen Climie (art director of EXOTICA and THE SWEET HEREAFTER). The music is by Toronto favourite Mary Margaret O'Hara whose album "Miss America" was recently listed by Canada's Chart Magazine as #14 on the list of best Canadian albums ever, and among the top 100 albums of all time by British music magazine MOJO.

FYI I have been back in Beijing since last summer on my second posting here at the Embassy as a program manager for the Canadian International Development Agency (the first tour was 1991-95). My current responsibilities include projects in economic and social policy reform (pensions, fiscal policy, environmental laws, public-sector restructuring, etc.) as well as humanitarian programs in North Korea.

My wife Alison (née Pipa, a graduate of Port Credit Secondary School and former SOMA Secretary-General) is also posted here, as the regional manager for Canada's Export Development Corporation. We have two boys, Sam (11) and Alex (8).

There are two other UTS grads in the Embassy, Jennifer May and Rebecca Netley (who were in Grade 7 when we were graduating); we are scheduled to be joined by Leigh Sarty next year.
