SPRAGGETT ON CHESS My friend Antoine (Montreal) sent me the drawing (below), supposedly representing the membership of the OCA (the Ontario Chess Association).
After the Ontario Trillium Foundation washed its hands of the OCA, the membership has been consistently blocked and frustrated in any and all attempts to find out what really happened to 120,000 dollars that the OCA received and managed during a 2 year period.
The current CFC leadership, almost all former OCA politicos, were involved from the very beginning when Mr. Barry Thorvardsson conceived of the idea of applying for the grant. They are all in a position of conflict of interest with respect to finding out the truth, and rather than step aside and create an independent commission to investigate the scandal, they are tossing the ball between each other and wasting precious time. The OCA membership has been easy to manipulate and control: they behave as helpless victims, enslaved (the drawing) and unable to assert themselves.Thx Antoine!
