To Whom It May Concern
Last friday (13-October) my bank account was garnisheed. I was left with a total of $00.43 in the bank.
At this time I have rent and bill's to pay which would come to somewhere approaching $1500.00 to $1800.00.
Since my last pay was also direct deposited on friday I now have no way of supporting myself. I have no money for food or for gas for my car to enable me to work. My employer also tells me that they will only pay me by direct deposit. I therefore no longer have a job, since the money would not reach me.
I have tried talking to the Family Support people at 1916 Dundas St. E. their answer was:-" we have a court order." repeated several times.
I have tried talking to the welfare people in Markham. Since I earned over $520.00 last month I am not eligible for assistance.
I have had no contact with my daughter in approx. 4 year's. I do not even know if she is alive and well. I have tried to keep her informed of my current telephone number but she has never bothered to call.
I have no family and no friend's, very little food, no viable job and very poor future prospects. I have therefore decided that there is no further point in continuing my life. It is my intention to drive to a secluded area, near my home, feed the car exhaust into the car, take some sleeping pills and use the remaining gas in the car to end my life.
I would have prefered to die with more dignity.
It is my last will and testament that this letter be published for all to see and read.
