OHRC Brown and Ottawa Carleton District Health Council resolve complaint amicably.; 1990.
Many health and other service providers were subjecting persons with sensitivities to adverse differential treatment in the 1980's. I chose to complain about the District Health Council because 1)if you can't get into planning where can you get in? and 2) they were a group of people representing the community, rather than one of many discriminating agencies. Al Warren, Executive Director at the DHC, understood the local planning issues and invited a process toward an amicable resolution of the complaint. Therese Legault, in the OHRC Ottawa office, was very helpful. The promised conference took place in just over a year. The inclusion in local health planning never happened. The commitment the DHC made before the OHRC to include the needs of persons with sensitivities was never kept or enforced.
OHRC Chief Commissioner Catherine Frazee rescinds Bruce Drewett memo.; 1990.
Frazee responded well to concerns expressed about Drewett's hateful misconceptions. She understood "arebitrayr interference." And she understood that it is irresponsible to encourage physicians to act unethically by subjecting patients who report their experience of repeatable, controllable circumstances to a reverse onus.
OHRC Chief Commissioner Catherine Frazee informs that she has written Ontario Health Minister Evelyn Gigantes.; 1991.
Gigantes staff were lying about the fact that an existing, publicly insured method of diagnosis was identified in the Report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Environmental Hypersensitivity Disdorders (note plural). Paul Dewar, MP, who worked in Gigantes constituency office, continues to turn a blind eye to this deceit, and to the unnecessary deaths it causes.
