Abbey S. CPA Susan Abbey begs off meeting, says issue will be dealt with by CPA.; 1991.
Susan Abbey has contributed to the killing of thousands of Canadians with sensitivities by arbitrarily deciding that psychological sequelae of sensitivities are instead the cause of the problem. The CPA has published her arbitrary statements without including information that would "completely refute" the damaging allegations she forwards, even while the CPA has been in possession of that information.

Abbey S, Brown C. Susan Abbey invisibilizes physicians' abuse and killing of persons with sensitivities in health care.. 1993.
The Ontario Medical Review published several articles that trivialize the issues facing persons with sensitivities. Susan Abbey's 1993 article in the Ontario Medical Review was one of the worst, but not the only article she published that overtly encouraged the abuse of persons with sensitivities, that confused psychiatric sequelea with cause without providing data. It is amazing that such irresponsible and hateful persons have maintained credibility amongst their peers for so long, and in the face of hundreds of years of literature not to mention concerns expressed by human rights officials and generations of consumers! The OMA's irresponsibility in continuing to publish what amounts to hate literature must also be mentioned. By 1993, I had given up on approaching the bigots at the Ontario Medical Review and instead wrote the attached letter to the provincial coroner. It is ironic that, at the same time the OMR was invisibilizing the daily killing of persons with sensitivities by physicians, and trivializing associated needs, the OMA's ethics staff member, John Krauser, was helping us address attitudes in the Ontario government! Krauser mysteriously left the OMA in the late 1990's, shortly after he convinced the OMA's representative to the Ministry of Education to include sensitivities in assessments of learning and behavioural disabilities (as was already being done by several school boards).

Abbey S. Canadian Psychiatric Association's Susan Abbey acknowledges receipt of concern, says CPA will be addressing it..; 1991.
The CPA has ignored more than a century of literature about persons with central nervous system dysfunction that is caused or exacerbated by environmental sensitivities. Mapping prevalence against suicide statistics suggests that there is one Canadian suicide per day of such a person, after they have been ploughed under by attitudes Health and Welfare was once addressing.

Rotor L, Stutt E, Brown C. Environmental Sensitivities Awareness Project.; 1993.
Public education was recommended in government reports, by public health groups and by Health and Welfare prior to the 1993 election. By the time this proposal was submitted, Health Canada had abandoned promoting the protection of persons with environmental sensitivities. The project was not approved. The people who were supposed to be protected by measures encouraged prior to 1993 are being injured or killed, instead.

AEHA Ottawa writes members concerning District Health Council conference.; 1990.
Conference organized by Ottawa Carleton DHC as part of an amicable resolution of an OHRC complaint. The DHC board members, listed in another document, did not keep their promise to include sensitivities in health care planning in the region. More than 3,000 persons have been unnecessarily killed in local health care since, more than 500 persons with CNS dysfunction resulting from undiagnosed sensitivities have suicide, and countless women with eating disorders have died without being fully assessed for sensitivities.

AEHA Waterloo Wellington.; 1990.
The Branch newsletters in HEF, AEHA and AGES contained a wealth of information about toxins, sensitivities, how to cope, diet, housing, the workplace, children, schools and so on. However, serious issues such as suicide, adverse drug reaction deaths, or other iatrogenic deaths were avoided out of a fear of arousing abusers.

Petition - Supporters of people with "MCS" hide their history behind the one they learned from doctors of environmental medicine.; 1992.
While the goals of this petition are laudable, its creators manage to sabotage themselves by stating that the clinic in Nova Scotia is the first to serve persons with sensitivities in Canada. They refer to a disease concept proposed by doctors of environmental medicine that attempts to describe a group that does not have one single disease. They place research ahead of protections based on existing knowledge, sabotaging the rights and security of persons with sensitivities across Canada.

AEHA National forms committee to look into abuse.; 1995.
It is almost unbelievable that, 15 years ago, the attached committee was formed, and the attached motion was passed by AEHA National at AGM Board meeting. Neither were acted on, as Featherstone, Maclennan, Molot, Marshall, Krop, Armstrong crap, pulled the group back to being only a fan club for doctors of environmental medicine. It was a good committee, and a good motion, but absolutely no follow through. ALL of the speakers at the AGM were physicians, except one guy at the end of the day who talked about housing renovations. Jerry Ross actually said that the critics of environmental medicine were all saying that it was all in peoples' heads, which was not my experience at all. The function of Ross's comments were to unethically scare consumers into the environmental medicine fold. It is the meeting where I met Joffres, by demanding an apology from him for saying that sensitivities were not accepted, and that we needed research before they could be accepted. I was so incredibly offended to see that everything that had moved forward before 1993 was being sabotaged, not by the enemy, but by a chapter in NS and others who, in 1995, were where the Ottawa Branch had been in 1983. Nothing invisibilizes history like fanaticism. There was an incredibly goofy naturopath who had everyone under his spell, convincing them that what they needed, first and foremost, was an acceptance of naturopathy. I sat across from him at lunch and, just before we left, when finished, I asked him to get out of our faces, that he was using us for needs substantiation and setting us back in the process. I think he could tell the level of rage that was behind my quiet but very terse dressing down of him. Eventually he was out of the picture. At one point, a doctor in the audience whose wife had sensitivities got up and gave me a dressing down for criticising Joffres. He said that "the way things work" was that we needed research, just like we needed Lister before we dealt with infection. I wish I'd known then that the words "infective" and "pestilential" predated Lister by centuries.

Ottawa Branch of AEHA was the largest, best organized and, for a while, had escaped the role of simply being cheerleaders for the nonsense being promoted by doctors of environmental medicine. It was, for most of the 1990's, a true consumer organization in the traditions of the cross disability movement.

In a world of crazies, Joanna was a breath of fresh air. This letter gives an example of what sensible people were up against when they accepted leadership positions in AEHA. AEHA was, at the time, a self help group trying to become a consumer group. In the end, it became a shill for doctors of environmental medicine when consumer advocates all left in despair.

Others in the department were working to stop preventable harm, using the full half of the cup even as debate about the "new" ideas of "doctors of environmental medicine" provided a convenient distraction for public servants who wanted to avoid their responsibilities.

CMA Policy Summary on Immunization. Ottawa: Canadian Medical Association; 1985.
CMA policy makes no mention of disability resulting from immunization shots. Also, they publish a policy about immunization during a period where they were declaring, in relation to environmental sensitivities, they do not make statements about specific aspects of health care. A similar policy summary concerning sensitivities might have saved many thousands of lives.

Canadian Medical Association brief to Parliament on Canadian Environmental Protection Act.; 1988.
Section 32(2)(b) This provision is contrary to the traditional medical dictum of Ilfirst do no harm". The most likely cause of delay on the part of the department will be administrative inefficiency or extra concern regarding the substance in q~estion. It would therefore be much more appropriate to create a system that would keep the potentially-offending substance out until a decision was actually made. As physicians, we shudder at the thought that such a system could prevail for the marketing of pharmaceutical products: that is, the manufacturer would be allowed to sell a product unless the Health Protection Branch objected within a stated period of time following application.
