“Brown to Susan Wright in health minister Jake Epp's office, concerns being ignored”. 1985.,
Expression of some initial concerns after frustration with lack of action over preceding several years.
“Brown to Susan Abbey, of Canadian Psychiatric Assocation”. 1991.,
Susan Abbey at first agreed to meet to discuss persons with sensitivities. Then, when she realized that the concern involved horrific abuse by psychiatrists, she "had another engagement." Her work has done much to sustain hateful attitudes amongst physicians, especially psychiatrists, contributing to thousands of suicides over two decades.
“Brown to ROH Chris Henderson asking for help in addressing abusive attitudes at the ROH”. 1990.,
Patients whose psych problems are caused or exacerbated by sensitivities are given the run around at the Royal Ottawa Hospital, despite centuries of literature, and despite several interventions by consumers. This letter led to a consciousness raising session with senior ROH medical staff, but the hospital to this day harbours hateful misconceptions concerning these patients.
“Brown to RMOC suicide prevention coordinator about undiagnosed CNS reactors”. 1990.,
Based on prevalence of sensitivities mapped against suicide rates, there have been more than 3,000 suicides in the Ottawa area of persons whose CNS dysfunction is caused or exacerbated by undiagnosed sensitivities.
“Brown to Revenue Minister Otto Jelinek re-affirming tax boycott, after Timmins suicide”. 1989.,
Public servants lied about the history of sensitivities, then they lied about official reports, they subjected citizens to a reverse onus, and they contributed to a hundred thousand deaths.
“Brown to Redford at Sundance”. 1989.,
No stone unturned!
“Brown to Ray Cohen at Abilities Magazine”. 1991.,
Cohen refused to publish a story about the abuse and unnecessary killing of persons disabled by sensitivities because he wanted to take a "positive approach."
“Brown to Randy Pritchard of OPSA concerning CNS reactors”. 1991.,
OPSA is familiar with the abuse of patients in the mental health system, something the CPA and CMHA avoid dealing with. Certainly the abuse of persons with CNS problems that are caused or exacerbated by sensitivities are being ploughed under by hateful attitudes, with the result that at least one such Canadian suicides every day (based on mapping prevalence against suicide stats).
“Brown to Queens Park Press Gallery about OMA and Ministry of Health ignoring abuse of persons with sensitivities”. 1993.,
Queen's Park reporters still, today, eclipse the actual history, rights and needs of persons with sensitivities behind debate about the ideas of so-called "doctors of environmental medicine." The OMA and the Ontario Ministry of Health have done little to address abuse by physicians or others. Making venues scent free hardly touches the issues, becomes a form of trivialization.
“Brown to Psychiatric Patient Advocacy Office Duff Waring about ongoing damages caused by Ontario Ministry of Health”. 1991.,
This is essentially a copy of the letter sent to health minister Evelyn Gigantes about the contribution of ministry officials to the exclusion, injury and unnecessary deaths of persons with sensitivities.
“Brown to Premier Bob Rae reminding him of his government's ongoing contribution to lethal abuse”. 1994.,
Bob Rae turned his back on concerns about how his officials were contributing to the exclusion, injury and unnecessary killing of persons with sensitivities in Ontario.
“Brown to Paul Bagnell, Thomson Newspapers, overview”. 1992.,
Outlines some progress, issues.
“Brown to Parliamentary Press Gallery”. 1987.,
Journalists wanted some validation from officialdom to cover, officialdom said we needed press coverage to create pressure. Meanwhile, journalists and government were contributing to the ongoing killing of persons with sensitivities in health care.
“Brown to Ottawa Medical Officer of Health Steve Corber”. 1989.,
Corber, like his predecessor, was hostile to the concerns of persons with sensitivities, unwilling to learn their history, and he ignored the findings of the Ontario reports that said public health should be doing public and professional education to reduce preventable harm being caused to persons with sensitivities. More than 4,000 persons with undiagnosed sensitivities have been unnecessarily killed in the Ottawa area since.
“Brown to Ottawa Citizen concerning abusive story by Sharon Kirkey”. 1992.,
Kirkey repeatedly confused debate about the theories and ideas of so-called doctors of environmental sensitivities with the actual history of persons with sensitivities, contributing to misconceptions and attitude problems that cause preventable harm and unnecessary deaths.
“Brown to Ontario Solicitor General David Christopherson about Chief Coroner's inaction concerning suicides of persons with sensitivities”. 1993.,
Christopherson ignored concerns about the contribution of his cabinet colleagues to the exclusion, injury and unnecessary killing of persons with environmental sensitivities. Now a federal MP. Christopherson and his NDP colleagues are silent about the daily unnecessary killing of a dozen Canadians with sensitivities in health care.
“Brown to Ontario Premier Peterson about a suicide, and about ongoing preventable harm being caused to persons with undiagnosed sensitivities”. 1990.,
Peterson ignored concerns about how his health ministers had misrepresented the Thomson Report, sabotaging the health and security of persons with sensitivities. He ignored a representation from the Ontario Medical Association about how the Ministry of Health was misrepresenting their position in a damaging way.
“Brown to Ontario Ombudsman Jamieson about ignoring abuse of persons with sensitivities”. 1994.,
Jamieson was an apologist for, or at least an invisibilizer of, lethally abusive attitudes at the Ontario Ministry of Health.
“Brown to Ontario Ombudsman about his failure to address Ministry of Health deceit”. 1989.,
The Ministry of Health was lying outright about the availability of a publicly insured method of diagnosis, as identified in the 1985 Thomson report. When approached, the Ontario Ombudsman merely repeated the Ministry of Health's deceits, and made no recommendations. More than 30,000 Ontario residents have been unnecessarily killed in health care since.
“Brown to Ontario ODI Jon Boynton (missing last page)”. 1989.,
Boynton was helpful until his minister, Remo Mancini, took a lethal position, at which point Boynton apparently lost his intelligence.
“Brown to Ontario MoH PPAO concerning persons with undiagnosed CNS reactions”. 1986.,
How do you address belligerent attitudes amongst psychiatrists? I thought that the Ontario Psychiatric Patient Advocate Office might have some experience. It is a measure of failure that, based on prevalence against suicide rates, there have been more than 8,000 suicides of Canadians with psych problems that are caused or exacerbated by undiagnosed sensitivities since this letter was written!
“Brown to Ontario Ministry of Health Gail Waller concerning her memo of 16 September 1990.”. 1991.,
Waller's memo is also in this bibliography.
“Brown to Ontario Ministry of Health DM Margaret Mottershead concerning negligence concerning abuse by physicians”. 1994.,
Mottershead did not address the contribution being made by Ontario public servants to the ongoing exclusion, injury and unnecessary killing of persons with sensitivities.
“Brown to Ontario Ministry of Education Jean Comptois”. 1989.,
Kids with learning and behavioural disabilities resulting from sensitivities are still being horrifically abused in schools across Canada.
“Brown to Ontario Medical Association about ongoing abuse by physicians”. 1991.,
Krauser had tried to help address attitudes, encouraged the publication of an article addressing attitudes in the Ontario Medical Review. However, the article left out the fact that physicians were causing serious harm, including deaths. When a letter to the editor was sent to the OMR, the editors changed the letter, removing any reference to the serious consequences of what physicians were doing, and then publishing the changed letter over the signature of the author without permission.
“Brown to Ontario MCSS DM Valerie Gibbons about abuse by MCSS officials”. 1990.,
While persons in the worst financial situation were leading the fight against abuse by authorities, agencies mandated to support such persons were among the most abusive! Over and over, social assistant recipients were subjected to abuse. The Ministry still sabotages the rights of persons with this disability and helps the Ontario government invisibilize their contribution to daily unnecessary deaths.
“Brown to Ontario Legislature Research Service”. 1989.,
Various parties in the Ontario government would summarize the issue and, when they did, they would be sure to include as facts the misconceptions and deceits of the Ontario Ministry of Health, and denigrate or simply leave out information from 300 years of medical literature, or positive actions by many parties who were not focused on covering up their mistakes. Missing page 5.
“Brown to Ontario health minister's staffer Marie Lorenzo”. 1993.,
Health Ministers of the Bob Rae government, including Marie Lorenzo's boss, Ruth Grier, got lost in a consideration of the "new" ideas of so-called "doctors of environmental medicine" while ignoring their own officials' unethical and at times dishonest contribution to the exclusion, injury and unnecessary killing of persons with environmental sensitivities.
“Brown to Ontario Health Minister's EA Mary Lewis”. 1993.,
Health Ministers of the Bob Rae government, including Mary Lewis's boss, Ruth Grier, got lost in a consideration of the "new" ideas of so-called "doctors of environmental medicine" while ignoring their own officials' unethical and at times dishonest contribution to the exclusion, injury and unnecessary killing of persons with environmental sensitivities.
“Brown to Ontario health minister Ruth Grier's EA Mary Lewis about abuse of CNS Reactors”. 1993.,
Ashford and Miller's work was enough to convince the federal health department to act to protect persons whose central nervous system dysfunction is caused or exacerbated by sensitivities, but it was not enough for the people responsible for delivering health care in Ontario to protect them. Based on mapping prevalence of sensitivities against suicide stats, there have been a couple of thousand consequent suicides since, just in Ontario.
“Brown to Ontario Health Minister Ruth Grier concerning staff's refusal to address abuse by physicians”. 1994.,
Grier did not address abuse issues, focused instead on legitimate but separate debate about doctors of environmental medicine.
“Brown to Ontario Health Minister Ruth Grier concerning her Strategic Priorities”. 1994.,
Grier focused on a legitimate but separate debate about environmental medicine instead of protecting persons with sensitivities from being unnecessarily injured or killed in health care.
“Brown to Ontario Health Minister Ruth Grier, cc'd to Premier Rae's PR person”. 1993.,
Ha! We later learn more about John Piper's corrupt person from the New York Times: "The Premier's press adviser, John Piper, 49, a former executive with the giant public relations firm, Hill & Knowlton, quit after trying to discredit a woman who was charging sexual misconduct by a former Cabinet minister. Mr. Piper had offered to leak the woman's criminal record to a reporter from The Toronto Sun." Needless to say, something as embarrassing as the abuse and killing of disabled persons was stuffed under the carpet, while Grier and her staff eclipsed it behind a legitimate but separate debate about the ideas of "doctors of environmental medicine."
“Brown to Ontario Health Minister Ruth Grier, cc'd to Premier Bob Rae's assistant Peter Mosher”. 1993.,
While Grier's staff babbled on about finding (miracle) treatments, she and they ignored the daily killing of persons with sensitivities in health care, and their injury and exclusion in several venues. Ministry officials clung to the debate about "environmental medicine" while denying persons with sensitivities basic rights and protections that are normally afforded to members of the public. Staff in Premier Rae's office were equally confused, discriminatory and irresponsible.
“Brown to Ontario health minister Evelyn Gigantes about abuse by her officials”. 1991.,
Gigantes clung to debate about the theories of environmental medicine, instead of respecting and protecting the human rights of patients who were (and are) being unnecessarily killed. Officials in her own office stated that the Thomson report said there was not a publicly insured method of diagnosis when in fact there was. Gigantes and her officials ignored the legal obligations to children and other vulnerable persons that arise from the existence of a method of diagnosis.
“Brown to Ontario health DM Michael Decter's EA Tiina Jarvalt when asked "What can we do?"”. 1993.,
Jarvalt was powerless unless Michael Decter acted on his responsibilities, which he did not do, instead eclipsing the actual history, needs and rights of persons with sensitivities behind debate about doctors of environmental medicine. More than 30,000 people have been unnecessarily killed in Ontario health care since.
“Brown to Ontario health DM Michael Decter about abuseof CNS reactors by Ministry of Health staff”. 1992.,
Persons with CNS problems caused or exacerbated by sensitivities were not being screened out of the general psychiatric population, as recommended by Health and Welfare, Ashford and Miller and others, with the result that they were being subjected to treatments that cause harm.
“Brown to Ontario DM of Health Michael Decter about negligence of Ontario Medical Officer of Health Richard Schabas”. 1992.,
Schabas ignored the exclusion, injury and killing of persons with sensitivities, despite recommendations (and responsibilities) outlined in the 1985 Report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Environmental Hypersensitivity Disorders.
“Brown to Ontario Deputy Attorney George Thomson asking who is responsible to address ongoing unnecessary kiling of persons with sensitivities”. 1993.,
Mr. Thomson's bosses, Deputy Attornies General of Ontario Howard Hampton and Marion Boyd, turned a blind eye as children with sensitivities were assaulted and otherwise abused in schools, while persons with sensitivities were unnecessarily killed in health care.
“Brown to Ontario Deputy Attorney General George Thomson about child abuse in Ottawa area schools”. 1993.,
Thomson was good on soft issues, but avoided taking positions or making statements about serious abuse. Parents with children who were being abused (assaulted) in the former Carleton Board of Education were discouraged from making complaints by attitudes at the Ottawa Police Service and the local Crown Attorney's office.
“Brown to Ontario Cabinet concerning suicide resulting from their belligerence”. 1990.,
This was a mail merge to the Ontario cabinet of David Peterson which had buried the Report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Environmental Hypersensitivity Disorders, lied about the existence of a publicly insured method of diagnosis, invisiblized the serious preventable harm being caused by attitudes towards persons with sensitivities, and eclipsed the history of sensitivities behind debate about the approaches of clinical ecology.
“Brown to OMHF concerning persons with undiagnosed CNS reactions”. 1986.,
....makes argument that many persons with CNS reactions are undiagnosed, should be rescured.
“Brown to Ombudsman Ontario concerning abuse by Ontario Ministry of Health”. 1992.,
While persons with sensitivities were being excluded, injured and killed, the Ontario Ombudsman pretended that the Ministry of Health was acting appropriately, without ever doing a requested investigation. More than 30,000 people have been unnecessarily killed in health care since 1992. There have been more than 2,000 Ontario suicides of persons with central nervous system sequelae. Financial damages to consumers and the people around them run into the hundreds of millions. Children with related learning or behavioural disabilities are being abused in schools. All the while, Ministry of Health officials have forwarded positions that an appointed committee found "clearly untenable" and "antithetical to the task of promoting collaborative efforts that will help in understanding and treating the problem of a growing number of patients" in 1985.
“Brown to OMA John Krauser about failure of OMA to address abusive attitudes in physicians, Ontario Medical Review”. 1994.,
Krauser was helpful, but others at the OMA advocated astonishingly irresponsible and abusive positions, with the exception of Carole Guzman and, in 1996, William Mahoney, the OMA's representative on the Ministry of Education's advisory panel on special needs.
“Brown to OMA John Krauser about attitude of OMA rep to Ministry of Education Special Education Advisory Committee”. 1995.,
It is extremely important to note that Dr. Mahoney became an advocate for children with learning and behavioural disabilities resulting from sensitivities, and spoke at the 1996 National Conference of Children with Sensitivities in 1996. He is an example of a physician, medical leader, who was able to learn and help protect children.
“Brown to OMA John Krauser”. 1989.,
Short overview of situation.
“Brown to OMA Ian Warrack about abuse by physicians”. 1991.,
While discussing abuse by physicians, OMA staffer John Krauser expressed the opinion that physicians were mistreating persons with sensitivities because they did not understand the consequences of what they were doing. When an advocate wrote a letter to the editor of the OMR describing the effect of physician attitudes, the letter was published, but only after OMR editors removed any reference to these lethal consequences.
“Brown to OMA Hilliard about attitudes”. 1989.,
Why physicians do not understand that it is unethical to subject persons to a reverse onus about their experience of repeatable, controllable circumstances is beyond me. So many tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths, so much disability and misery in society, just because physicians do this to persons with sensitivities!
“Brown to OHRC Rosen concerning use of OMA as reference concerning abuse by physicians”. 1993.,
Ironically, within a couple of years, the OMA was writing to OHRC Commissioner Rosemary Brown on our behalf, asking where the OHRC was getting its information. The OHRC, for three decades, with the exception of the time when Catherine Frazee was Chief Commissioner, and to a lesser extent when Keith Norton was Chief Commissioner, has subjected persons with sensitivities to a reverse onus on the basis of a legitimate but separate debate about "environmental medicine."
“Brown to OHRC Chief Commissioner Rosemary Brown about failure of OHRC to address human rights violations against persons with sensitivies”. 1994.,
Under Rosemary Brown, the OHRC was preoccupied with racism, ignored the exclusion, injury and killing of persons disabled by environmental sensitivities. OHRC staff were encouraging physicians to subject persons with sensitivities to a reverse onus concerning their experience of repeatable, controllable circumstances.
