Premier wants answers on mental health detainee who fled, calls man a 'nutcase'

Premier wants answers on mental health detainee who fled, calls man a 'nutcase' TORONTO — Ontario's premier says he wants to get to the bottom of how a patient detained at a mental health hospital managed to flee, calling the man a "nutcase." The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health says Zhebin Cong, who was found not criminally responsible for the death of his roommate, had been on an unaccompanied trip into the community on July 3 when he failed to return. The hospital says it reported the 47-year-old's disappearance later that day to police, who issued a notice asking for the public's help in finding the man nearly two weeks later, but now say he has fled the country.

In the weeks since Doug Ford was elected to lead Ontario’s conservatives, comparisons to Trump have been unavoidable, sparking wide debate as to whether In Ontario, Ford ’ s main opponent has seized on the Trump comparison, hoping to capitalise on the US politician’s dismal popularity in Canada.

Ford furious that ‘nutcase’ was allowed to leave country, July 19

I am beyond livid by Premier Doug Fords’s recent derogatory statements about an individual with mental illness. While I certainly don’t condone the actions of the specific patient, to use the words “nutcase” and “crazy” to describe a mental health patient is abhorrent.

Ford says it was 'heartbreaking' to have to disconnect cell phone

Ford says it was 'heartbreaking' to have to disconnect cell phone TORONTO — Doug Ford says it was "heartbreaking" to have to cancel his cell phone this week after the line was flooded by calls from special interest groups. The Ontario premier, who made it a point of handing out his number to the public, said Thursday that the decision to scrap the line came after he received 400 to 500 calls a day, as well as harassing text messages. In at least one case, Ford said a person texted him saying they hoped he would die of cancer like his brother, the late Toronto mayor Rob Ford. "It's heartbreaking," he said of the decision to cancel the line. "There's so many people Rob and myself helped on this phone and it's a shame.

Ontarians handed Doug Ford a strong Progressive Conservative majority because they feel he best understands their pocketbook struggles and trust him to take quick action on excess government spending, says a revealing post-vote study by Navigator Ltd. This despite Ford ’ s apparent lack of

Mr. Ford, your own brother dealt with addiction, which is so often co-morbid with mental illness. Would you refer to him as a “nutcase?” In your position, you have the opportunity to be a part of the solution rather than perpetuate the problem. I believe education and empathy are severely lacking in your administration.

I say this as the granddaughter of a woman who died from mental illness at her own hand after years of suffering in silence — a fact I only learned a year ago. My grandmother died in 1971, eight years before I was born, but rather than tell the truth about her illness and death, my family lied for years (and continues to) because of the stigma.

I speak to you as the niece of a vibrant, funny man who suffered with schizophrenia. He was subjected to electroshock therapy — a prisoner in his mind and a forensic mental health facility, until he was finally released from anguish upon his death last year.

Doug Ford's 'Nutcase' Remark About Mental Health Detainee Crossed A Line: MPP

Doug Ford's 'Nutcase' Remark About Mental Health Detainee Crossed A Line: MPP TORONTO — An Opposition MPP is slamming Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s comments about a mentally ill patient as “derogatory” and unhelpful. Thursday morning, Ford called into a Toronto talk radio show to talk about Zhebin Cong, a patient at the city’s Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) who was found not criminally responsible for the 2014 murder of his roommate. 

The contrasting and categorization of emotions describes how emotions are thought to relate to each other. Several proposals have been made for organizing them into groups.

My family deals with anxiety, anorexia, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, etc. I suffer with my mental health as well. We struggle to find the right treatments. Don’t make us struggle with stigma. We are not “nutcases” or “crazy.” Apologize, Premier Ford. Do better.

Keep eye on premier flip-flopping on light rail, Keenan, July 24

Is requiring four online courses the weirdest thing DoFo has done? Salutin, July 18

Columnist Rick Salutin is right about Premier Doug Ford’s online educational fix — four virtual credits are now compulsory to graduate — being weird.

The whole conservative sensibility, driven by false grievances, believes that all institutions in society are broken because they are not run like a business. Ford believes only he can fix things because of his business sense. Only he knows how to restructure society by forcing them to adhere to the profit motive.

All PC policies from now on in Ford’s government will follow the money to be saved.

Unfortunately, trying to run society like a business overlooks the fact that the governors of society should be nation building instead of accruing profits.

Recent failed educational outcomes in the U.S. have proven that producing profits for corporations took precedence over producing new knowledge in students. Consequently, Ford’s schooling for profit is a radical transformation of education online that will probably more likely break society than repair it.
