MPP Jack MacLaren is the only MPP who has tried to help protect Ontario’s holistic healthcare industry and everyone’s freedom of expression and choice in health care treatments and practitioners from the province’s ‘psychotherapy’ legislative attack.
 
Jack presented Stop Psychotherapy Takeover’s formal petition, along with the Change.org petition signatures, to the Legislature  (a disgraceful circus, if ever we saw one) on March 27, 2017, and ran a segment in his email newsletter about this pharma-driven and very dangerous situation.
 
Jack fights for spiritual care in Ontario
 
Have you ever benefited from spiritual counseling and care? Unfortunately under new Liberal Government rules, spiritual providers risk losing everything including their faith.
 
Jack tabled a petition with over 15,000 signatures of our friends and neighbours who are concerned that these changes will ultimately limit the options available to the public.
 

Thanks to Grace Joubarne and the thousands of residents who signed this petition. You were heard loud and clear, let’s hope this leads to positive change.

 

Here’s what Jack said:
 
We have 10 guests here today who are practitioners of alternate systems of psychotherapy in the members’ gallery with us to hear this petition.
 
I have a petition that I’ve been asked to present:
“Whereas the Ontario health care system is experiencing massive cutbacks in services…;
 
“Whereas the safe natural treatment industry saves the health care system $7-10 billion annually;
 
“Whereas the elimination of natural, holistic, spiritual care and energy treatments from the public domain has already commenced with … cease demands by the College of Registered Psychotherapists;
 
“We, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
 
“Take action to end all efforts by the Minister of Health to proclaim the controlled act of psychotherapy.”
I support this petition, I affix my signature, and I give it to page Keira.
 
Thanks Grace for your hard work!”

Thank you, Jack!!
