Once again, I'm asking any survivors & advocates who may have solid info
re safe-runaway houses for psychiatric survivors and others trying to
escape or avoid the psychoprisons to send this info to me ASAP. As many
of you know, the extremely serious housing crisis has resulted in
alarming increases in homelessness across Canada, particularly in
Toronto where thousands are homeless, including over 1000 psychiatric
survivors. Inside the psychoprisons, forced drugging, rape, physical
assaults and physical restraints are increasing. P.A.C.T.(People Against
Coercive Treatment) & the Queen St. Patients Council in Toronto want to
start planning for safe houses now, but we can't unless we have good
info - PLEASE SEND RELEVANT INFO ASAP - or fax to: 416-545-0796, e-mail:
<pact@idirect.ca> or snailmail to: Don Weitz, #802-38 Orchard View
Blvd.,Toronto,Ontario M4R 2G3 - thanks
