SSRS and Line Breaks from SQL Server stuff statement

I have created a stored procedure that gets Client Visits

In the select I'm grabbing ClientName and I want to use a stuff statement to get all the contact nots for the visit.

How can I do that and render as line breaks in SSRS 2005?
Can I add  + '<br />' + in the Stuff portion?
Of vbcrlf?

In the following example I want one row of data per client in my SSRS Report, but you can see I want several Comments.
I know I can nest these on the SSRS sid with another recordset...just rather not.

Client         Comments
Apex           Comment1
                    Comment2
                    Comment3


This is my current select in the stored procedure
SELECT  [CVT].id ,
    [CVT].[Client ID] ,
    [CVT].[Contact ID] ,
    C.[Client Association],
    C.[Client Name],
    C.[Client State],
    [CVT].requester ,
    [CVT].createdDate,
    [CVT].createdBy  [Scheduled By],
    [CVT].[Account Executive] ,
    [CVT].departDate ,
    [CVT].meetingDate ,
    [CVT].returnDate ,
    [CVT].scheduleComment ,
    [CVT].visitStatus ,    
    CAST([CVT].notificationSent AS INT) [AE Notified],
    STUFF(( SELECT ' ' + CC.[First Name] + ' ' + CC.[Last Name] + '-' + B.Notes					 
			FROM	dbo.[Client Contact Events] AS B
			INNER JOIN dbo.[Client Contacts] CC
			ON B.[Contact ID] = CC.[Contact ID]
			WHERE	[CVT].[Client ID] = B.[Client ID]
				AND	B.EventType = 'Visit'
				AND	B.[Contact Date] > [CVT].createdDate  FOR XML PATH ('')),1,0,'') AS [Contact Notes]
FROM	dbo.ClientVisitTracking [CVT]
INNER JOIN Client C
	ON	[CVT].[Client ID] = C.[Client ID]

Not with <br>. Have you tried simple CHAR(10) inside the SQL instead?

In SSRS you can do the same with expression - if the comments where in separate columns
=dataset!comment1.value & chr(10) & dataset!comment2.value
