How To Send Me Mail

I want to thank everyone who has been sending me mail and books while I’m here at North Fraser Pretrial. Unfortunately, I’m still not getting a lot of my mail due to inappropriate content, missing return addresses, and other silly things like included illegal Post-It notes or staples.

Here is a brief podcast about how to send me mail properly and my shout-out of thank-yous to those who have been able to get through!

    I wish I were sending letters to France and to the new home of Cannabis Culture but you decided to go to the states instead because you said you couldn’t run, tell that to Roman Polanski, he had a good run but you didn’t listen to me and now you’re in the can. FUCK!
    If your incarceration doesn’t lead to some vast political change then it is done in vain.
    Why turn yourself over to a country who’s laws you don’t respect nor follow, fuck the U.S.A, yeah Frezno said it, Fuck You America, fuck your laws, your health care system, your government and every idiot who thinks America can make the rules for other countries. Keep your shit within your borders, nobody wants it.

    Jodie — I’m not sure what Marc would like to read, can Shelfari be used to list Marc’s “wish list” and “already read”?

    http://www.shelfari.com/

    Would love to show support by “friending” him there.

    Thanks, and all the best.

    Damn, I took one of those postcards and filled it out to send to Marc….oh well, awesome thought though, Thanks for making the postcards up man, We’ll keep Marc in Canada yet!

    It might not need a name… not sure though. Safer to have it added rather than not.

    Marc and all inmates receive phone cards in their name, and they put time on it by using money from their personal account. The only way to get Marc phone card time is to drop off money at the jail in his name. (Inmates can also make collect calls with their phone card, which won’t cost them money.)

  7. Dirty Harry on

    Jodie,
    Does he need phone cards for phone time? I understand not allowing the plastic, but if he needs phone time, would not buying a card and just giving him the card numbers in a letter be ok? Or will the screws not allow that either?
    You don’t need the actual card, just the numbers. Can Marc even make a toll free call to use a phone card?

    Does the return address need a name?

  9. jodie on

    Any return address is acceptable. They don’t check if it’s genuine, but if the mail is refused it’ll be mailed to the return address.

    If they don’t allow unknown senders, how do they know who the sender really was? You could put any return name and address on a package. Do they have to contact that person to make sure he really sent it or do they just take their word for it that it wasn’t really sent by “Akhmed”?

    Marc has received enough books for now, he can only have 6 at a time and when new books come in, he has to get rid of the ones he’s reading. When he’s in the US prison system, we’ll have a book list/registry for him.

    I guess you won’t get the 30 already stamped and addressed postcards I handed out to people in Nelson.

    How about a book section/page so we know what you’d care to read or at least what has already been sent?

    So all you need is a contact inside the Chapters online store and then have him send the specially prepared book with the LSD laden page…KIDDING.
