Gentes/CHRC withdraw complaint against Free Dominion

Moments ago, we received another letter from the Canadian Human Rights Commission, dated August 1, 2007, informing us that Marie-Line Gentes has withdrawn her complaint against Free Dominion and requested that the CRHC take no further action against us.

I would like to thank Ms. Gentes for making this move and will assume her motives for doing so were honourable.

The meat of the letter reads:
