Family of renown Canadian activist, Anne Larcade, struck by inhumane, archaic Policy | COMING CLEAN IS A DIRTY BUSINESS BUT WE ALL HAVE TO TAKE A BATH SOMETIME, BUT WHAT IS CHOSEN TO BE USED AS CLENSER WILL DETERMINE THE CLEANSING RESULTS!

Family of renown activist, Anne Larcade, struck by inhumane, archaic policy; eugenic mindset towards individuals with diversity (story follows below.)
 
Anne Larcade is one of the most intelligent, dedicated individuals I've knwn in life! This situation of alienation of a family from adult child with Autism is outrageous! No one cares for and knows more about her offspring, medical and developmental issues, or human rights than Alexandre's mother. Anne has worked tirelessly for families in Ontario and across Canada. She has worked alongside Ombudsman, Andre Marin to improve legislative practice to promote family-centred care. https://www.ombudsman.on.ca/Resources/Reports/Between-A-Rock-and-A-Hard-Place.aspx

This is a woman who took on the Province of Ontario - successfully- regarding families with disability issues being forced to surrender custody of a loved one in effort to access necessary medical services and supports. Anne Larcade has been my mentor for years. Due to Anne, I pursued rights for children and families in Alberta and achieved Samantha's Law to protect human interests. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samantha%27s_Law The System has selected the wrong advocate to pick on; we are one family united across the Nation where it comes to our children!
 
I am reminded of a situation that happened years ago during one of the first excursions by Protecting Canadian Children to educate the public. I remember approaching a family whose daughter had Down Syndrome to provide a brochure of awareness about System injustices. The mother handed it back and said, "We don't need this. Our daughter is over 18, nothing can happen to us." I shook my head and said the truth that so many do not want to hear: "I'm afraid you are uniformed; no one is free from targeting... not the children, nor persons with diversity, nor our elders." All it takes to be entangled in a struggle from alienation of a loved one is a benign circumstance - whether it is seeking medical attention, support services, or simply because a family disagrees with a service provider such as a teacher of physician. Bam! You are cut off from your child, your spouse with dementia, grandma in nursing care.... If we do not speak up collectively about medical kidnapping, increasingly, these outcomes will become the norm. It will not be a matter of hearing about a story in the news, it will directly affect everyone's lives.
 
Calling upon all disAbility and human rights' activists to share and write letters of support to media and government, please, on behalf of the family of Anne Larcade.

EXCLUSIVE: Mom claims hospital cut her off from developmentally disabled son

by Avery Haines, News Staff

Posted Jan 6, 2016 6:15 pm EST

A single mom who once advocated on behalf of all families in Ontario with severely disabled children now says a hospital has taken away her right to advocate for her own child.

Anne Larcade’s son, Alex, is 26. But his mental capacity if that of a child between the ages of two and eight. Despite his challenges, Larcade says her autistic son is usually happy and relatively independent. “He’s like Forrest Gump,” she explained, saying he has “pockets of brilliance.”

Alex was getting ready to move into a home his mother bought for him with 24-hour care.

But that plan was derailed on Dec. 21, when the combination of holiday stress and a reaction to a change in medication saw Alex’s mental state deteriorate.

“Alex eroded quickly,” she explained. “He became anxious, depressed, suicidal.”

At one point, he picked up a kitchen knife and held it to his own throat. “He said, ‘Mommy if you can’t fix my brain and get me help now I would rather die.'”

Larcade, who lives in Huntsville, called an ambulance and Alex was taken to Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital. For the first 10 days Alex seemed to be improving and Larcade visited him daily.

Then Alex was told he was going home. But when he tried to call his mother to tell her the good news, he suffered another setback. With the lone phone being used by other patients, Alex became agitated.

“They told me he started getting anxious and frustrated and swore,” she recalled.

Larcade says Alex was put in isolation.

For five days Larcade says she was kept completely in the dark about his condition and was barred from seeing him based on the fact that, even though he has the I.Q. of a child, he hadn’t granted consent.

“I’m unaware of his physical condition right now,” the frustrated mom said. “I do have knowledge from last week, he has been injected with medications, given additional, very dangerous medications.

“He has been locked in a segregation cell at one point with (his hands and feet) restrained.

“I’ve got a little boy who is scared,” she added. “Who thought that his mommy was coming to pick him up to be released…I don’t know if it’s legal, but I know it’s not right.”

 

In a statement, the hospital said it wouldn’t comment directly on Alex’s case, but that patients in distress are often placed in an ‘extra care’ area for “clients requiring closer monitoring or supervision.”

“Patients in this area may be in danger of harming themselves or others, or their illness may be preventing them from being able to function in a manner that would be considered socially acceptable.”

“Visiting is not permitted on the extra care unit…”

But Larcade says the hospital should have consulted with her because he doesn’t have the mental capacity to make his own decisions.

“He has an I.Q. of less than 60. I can show I’m responsible for all his financial and medical decisions … Would you let your two- to eight-year-old administer their financial and medical affairs?”

Larcade says she’s in a legal Catch-22 because of a law that states Power of Attorney can’t be granted if the person has an I.Q. of less than 70. She faces a lengthy battle for legal guardianship.

After CityNews contacted the hospital, Larcade was permitted to visit Alex, who remains in the extra care unit.

Larcade is now in talks with the hospital to try and set up a framework for Alex’s care and to develop protocols so this doesn’t happen again.

It’s not the first time she’s been the voice for the developmentally challenged and their families.

Fifteen years ago, Larcade took the province of Ontario all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, battling a loophole that required parents of disabled children to give custody up to the Children’s Aid Society in order to get them the care they need.

 

 

Hospital’s statement:

Orillia Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital (OSMH) provides both inpatient and outpatient mental health services to Orillia and beyond. Our inpatient unit is an acute care Schedule 1 facility providing care to residents of the North East portion of Simcoe County and Muskoka.

The 23-bed inpatient unit includes a 4-bed ‘extra care’ area. The extra care area is more secure and is intended for clients requiring closer monitoring or supervision. Patients in this area may be in danger of harming themselves or others, or their illness may be preventing them from being able to function in a manner that would be considered socially acceptable.

Visiting is not permitted on the extra care unit, or in any of the other patient rooms. All visiting occurs in the main dining area of the inpatient unit. This is to allow people who do not wish their presence known to have the safety of their personal room and space without the potential for confidentiality breaches.

Depending on their condition, patients in the extra care area may not have the option of accessing the main dining area to see visitors, unless their symptoms stabilize.

Patients and their family, including POAs (Powers of Attorney) where applicable, are an integral part of the treatment team at OSMH and are encouraged to take an active role in the development of the plan of care. For safety reasons, there may be times that family members or POAs may not have direct, physical access to a patient but their participation and input into the care plan is always welcomed. As part of its commitment to quality and safety, OSMH must ensure a safe environment for all patients, visitors and staff.

When a patient is unable to provide consent, for whatever reason, the hospital will turn to the patient’s Substitute Decision Maker (SDM).  I’ve provided a link with additional information on the SDM Act.  https://www.attorneygeneral.jus.gov.on.ca/english/family/pgt/pgtsda.pdf

Regarding your question about use of restraints, OSMH utilizes a Least Restraint policy.  The decision to use restraints is based on the principle that least restraint and use of alternatives are best.  In hospital, all patients are cared for in a fashion that respects their dignity, independence and freedom and provides for the safety of patients and staff.  Restraints shall be used only after the patient has been assessed and when there are reasonable grounds to believe that there is a potential for injury/harm to the patient or others if restraints are not used.   Such situations will be exceptional and temporary and only necessary when less restrictive measures or alternatives have been attempted and proven ineffective.

Dorothy Retha Cook's insight:

I have great respect for the rights of immigrants but what about the rights for education of the African American children who speaks for them and holds he educational government accountable. I admire the work of the immigrant which as part Indian I am and the way they have a united front to get what ever need be done. We as an African American people need he same as we are , have been and continue to be defrauded by he government as a people and the little clicks we have only fight for those they think worthy of their time and name while our immigrant sisters and brothers unite and get what they want , I say not shame on them but SHAME on us and education is for all but for what ever reason we have a separation called the worthy and the worthy not better known as the haves and the haves not!!! shame on us again!! and much respect to the fighters of the immigrants right which I am one of them also.

Nearly 300 Pregnant Women in the U.S. Have the Zika Virus

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday that 279 pregnant women in the United States and its territories have tested positive for the Zika virus, which can cause the birth defect microcephaly.

 

At first glance, that figure looks like a frightening uptick in the number of cases—it’s more than double the number released just last week. But the agency was quick to note that the new numbers reflect updated reporting standards that encompass a greater pool of women.

Hackers Target Presidential Candidates, U.S. Spy Chief Says




By Dustin Volz and Mark Hosenball


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. presidential campaigns face threats from hackers bent on espionage and other activity more nefarious than mere political mischief, the office of the U.S. National Intelligence Director James Clapper said on Wednesday, but did not provide details on specific intrusions.


“We're aware that campaigns and related organizations and individuals are targeted by actors with a variety of motivations- from philosophical differences to espionage - and capabilities- from defacements to intrusions,” Clapper's spokesman Brian Hale said in a statement, deferring to the FBI for details on specific incidents.


Earlier, Clapper said the U.S. intelligence community had “already had some indications” of hacking attempts against presidential campaigns.


“As the campaign intensifies we'll probably have more” attacks, Clapper said at a morning event at the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington.


The hacking efforts against the campaigns are considered so serious that some relevant congressional committees have been briefed on the activity, a government source said.


Following Clapper's statement, congressional investigators asked the intelligence community for more details about hacks on the campaigns, the source said.


The last two U.S. presidential cycles in 2008 and 2012 witnessed a barrage of cyber attacks from a range of adversaries targeting President Barack Obama's campaign and the campaigns of his Republican foes.


U.S. intelligence officials have said many of the previous assaults were linked to Chinese hackers.


Clapper said the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are working to educate “both campaigns” about cyber threats, likely referring to the campaigns of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.


Hotel properties belonging to Trump have been hacked twice since the billionaire real estate developer declared his candidacy last year. In both cases hackers breached the credit card systems used by Trump Hotel Collection.


Clinton has endured relentless scrutiny from Republicans accusing her of jeopardizing classified information by using a private email server during her tenure as U.S. secretary of state. Clinton and U.S. officials have said no evidence has emerged showing the server was hacked.


The Republican and Democratic candidates for president will begin receiving intelligence briefings after being officially nominated at party conventions this summer.


Clapper said the two candidates would receive "exactly the same" briefings. He said the sessions would not be used to try to persuade Trump to soften his stance about a proposed ban on Muslim immigration, which some national security professionals have said is counterproductive to fighting Islamic extremism.


“We've been doing this for many years, it's not designed to shape anybody's worldview,” Clapper said.

#BroadwaySoWhite: Hollywood Is Not the Only Arts Industry With a Race Problem

Since withdrawing from Classic Stage Company's off-Broadway production of Brecht's Mother Courage and releasing an open letter expressing her anger and frustration with the way she was disempowered as a Black woman during the rehearsal process, Tonya Pinkins has been subjected to an onslaught of dismissal and mockery from theatre professionals and the public alike. She has been accused of pulling the race card and the gender card, of being unprofessional, of throwing a temper tantrum.

Hate sites have popped up on the Internet, referring to Pinkins as a "delusional, narcissistic abuser" and an "entitled and controlling bully" because of her decision to leave the show. Pinkins's castmate Michael Potts publicly rebutted her allegations of sexism and racism, chalking the whole thing up to "creative differences" between Pinkins and the show's director Brian Kulick.

Reactions to Pinkins's departure have essentially condemned her for being an Angry Black Woman. For speaking out against a rehearsal process and production she found demeaning and destructive, Pinkins has been vilified in a manner that a man, (particularly a white man) speaking out in a similar way would be highly unlikely to face, and that a white woman would face to a certainly lesser extent.


"When a white woman is on the receiving end of sexist nonsense ... it's a given that the mainstream feminist movement will back her up. This is not the case with Black women..."


Further, when a white woman is on the receiving end of sexist nonsense or is attacked for being "bossy" or a "bitch," it's a given that the mainstream feminist movement will back her up. This is not the case with Black women, whose experiences of sexism and racism often fall through the cracks of both feminist and anti-racist movements.

Given the outrageous backlash that has come down against Pinkins since her letter was released, it's no wonder that so many choose to stay silent about the sexism and racism they experience in the theatre industry and throughout the entertainment business. Pinkins's decision to go public with her reasons for leaving the CSC production and to take control over her own narrative is truly remarkable in light of the consequences she likely knew she would face for doing so.

Why is it so difficult to believe people when they tell us about their experiences of disempowerment and subjugation? Specifically, why is it so difficult to trust women of color when they speak out about their intersectional experiences of oppression? Is it simply easier to dismiss Pinkins as being "delusional" or to focus on her perceived professional infraction, rather than acknowledge the harsh truth that people of color have historically been treated abominably in the entertainment industry and that, even now, only 21 percent of all actors being cast in shows on and off-Broadway are people of color?

The situation is even bleaker when you look at the gender and racial breakdown behind the scenes of New York theater. As reported in American Theatre, less than a quarter of all plays produced in America last year were written by women. Even worse, only 12 percent over the past four years were penned by writers of color. Unsurprisingly, data specific to women of color does not exist.

The conversation around Tonya Pinkins and Mother Courage desperately needs to be broadened. The minute details of what happened between actor and director are not nearly as important as the historic and structural dimensions of this story, yet they are all anyone seems to be focusing on.

To an extent, the question of whether Pinkins' decision was "professional" is irrelevant. Activism is inherently unprofessional. Without disruption, there is no activism. Similarly, the issue of "creative differences," of whether director or actor was academically "correct" in their interpretation of Brecht's play is irrelevant. To focus on these questions is to ignore the larger problem of systemic racism in American theater -- racism which is both inevitable and invisible because of the overwhelming dominance of white voices in creative decision-making. It is essential that white theatre professionals listen to what Pinkins is really saying, and that they accept her experience of having been disempowered.


"Activism is inherently unprofessional. Without disruption, there is no activism."


When Black women speak of their disempowerment, they are not making it up. No further conversation can occur until this is fundamentally understood by the white majority. As Pinkins said herself, her motivation for speaking out had less to do specifically with Mother Courage ("the straw that broke [her] silence") than with everything she's had to put up with over the course of her career.

And in the difficulties and indignities she has faced, Pinkins is not alone. Her brave response may be extremely unique, but among women and people of color in the theatre industry, her experience is surely closer to universal.

Jason Yau's curator insight, April 8, 2013 12:25 AM

I often hear, "I don't want to trust too quickly because I'll get hurt".  What I find interesting is that we hold so much back because we fear getting hurt because we get judged or laughed at.  


But for those who put themselves out there (guys and girls), they gain the greatest rewards in forging great relationships through effort and perseverence.  The thing we seldom acknowledge is that they are still scared of being hurt - they just choose to go through with it anyway ...

Taking a popular painkiller may be linked to decreased ability to empathize with others' suffering, a new studysuggests.

The people in the study who took acetaminophen (sold as Tylenol and various generic labels) showed lower levels of empathy toward other people who talked about feeling physical and emotional pain than those who took a placebo, the researchers found.
