We are pleased to announce (with some embarrassed tardiness) that we have been members in good standing and affiliates of the World Federation Against Drugs for some time now.

Here is the basic mission statement of the WFAD:

WFAD is a multilateral community of non-governmental organizations and individuals. We share a common concern that illicit drug use is undercutting traditional values and threatening the existence of stable families, communities, and government institutions throughout the world. Our aim is to work for a drug-free world.

Every month I am pleased to be part of a teleconference that includes some very sharp minds and wonderful souls from as far afield as Sweden, Argentina, Australia and many points in the USA.

We encourage you to check out the WFAD webpage at, and to consider joining this important organization.

It is a great pleasure to learn each month a) that there are so many like-minded people around the globe who believe in sobriety and clear thinking, and b) that there are so many varied and fascinating ways that people can all serve the same broad goals, each in unique and creative ways.

A major salute from Canada to our friends in the World Federation Against Drugs.
