Again,the questions remain, has the woman been carrying out her duties faithfully and without bias, as a steward of the court? Has she been undermining any processes that might otherwise allow justice to proceed without wrongful interventions? Has the author, or anyone-else, received any special treatment from her , in her capacity as a clerk of the court ? These are questions that must be answered before we can give any credibility to canadian healthcare pharmacy Mr. Astaphan , on this specific matter.
