Below is a typical example of the secrecy and exclusivity that has been used from Day 1 to facilitate the undermining of our democracy, fundamental rights and healthcare autonomy here in Ontario.
This is from CRPO’s January 8, 2016 Communiqué (the bolding is our emphasis):
“Controlled Act of Psychotherapy
As directed by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) last April, the six health regulatory colleges whose members would be authorized to perform the controlled act of psychotherapy have been working together to help clarify its meaning. With input from practitioners and subject matter experts, the six colleges (nurses, occupational therapists, physicians, psychologists, social workers and CRPO) have developed a draft common statement, which was submitted to the ministry for review in late December. It is expected that the statement may be revised following MOHLTC review, and subsequently must be endorsed/accepted by the six college Councils. Currently the document is in the hands of the ministry and is considered confidential, i.e. it cannot be shared. We will keep Members and stakeholders apprised as further information comes forward.”
As usual, there has been no public consultation whatsoever. New legislation needs to be clearly defined before it’s voted on, not 9 years later.
The above excerpt shows how the Ontario Minister of Health has put our personal freedoms, healthcare freedoms and lives in the hands of the 6 medical-model groups that he favors, in complete violation of our Constitutional rights and freedoms and the Regulated Health Professions Act. It not only proves the secrecy behind this takeover, but shows the intent to defraud the public of their rights.
