PPAO vs CMHA: Carol Goar’s Toronto Star Article

July 13, 2011

Yesterday (July 12), Toronto Star editor Carol Goar wrote an article summing up our crisis quite succinctly.  She makes no bones about how cynical the whole procedure has been, what with the secrecy, lack of consultation, and timing during the summer break.

Now the public knows.  It’s time to make sure the public cares.

    Great work Richard getting the response from the cmha and on the agenda at the Healthly Communities Partnership. This is what we have to do to move from the ‘public knowing’ to ‘caring’ – another one of your great lines, cheers Heather

    I agree, Heather.

    Richard is a dedicated, passionate and selfless activist and advocate. Regardless of whether the CMHA, Ontario is responsible for patient care etc or not as per Steve Lurie’s letter to the editor of The Toronto Star in response to the excellent Carol Goar article, this move by the PPAO and CMHA is setting a dangerous precedent and opens the door to conflict of interest and diminished rights and care for us. It’s the beginning of the end for us. A red light is flashing! It’s going to get worse if we don’t do something to support Richard’s initiative.

    Thank you Richard.

      Thanks a bunch! I’m only a tiny part of all this, and the only credit I can take is in making sure that the powers that be and wish to be in Grey Bruce have an awareness of the issue!
