The Public Deserves to Know Why Two Missing North Bay Patients Are 'Dangerous'

There has been considerable media coverage regarding two patients who did not return from off unit privileges on January 22, 2015 at the Mental Health and the Law Service of the North Bay Regional Health Centre. The authorities do a disservice to the public by not telling us what 'conflict with the law' makes them dangerous, which creates more danger for the public at large.

Just One More Shocking Example of Canada's Failing Healthcare System

Jacquie was mentally ill, this much was clear, but after age 12 her parents didn't have the ability to force her into treatment, where they knew she belonged. Sure enough, with Jacquie living on her own and untreated, she launched a horrific attack with a saw on two neighbours, a mother and a daughter, who nearly died. Jacquie was found criminally not responsible for the attacks. The two doctors who refused to deal with and treat a severely ill young lady remain in place today. They are hidden deep in a broken medical system that protects them, but also sucks them in as a new kind of unintended victim of a sick health care bureaucracy.
