Calling All Crazies

Are you someone who's, not to put too fine a point on it, nuts? Do you live in Ontario? Well, sir, the Ontario Human Rights Commission wants to hear about all the "discrimination" you've been subjected to as a result of your affliction.

(Wouldn't it be nice if, instead of wasting this money looking for "bigotry" and "prejudice," the cash went toward upgrading a woefully deficient mental health system?)

Update: It's written from an American perspective, but Rich Lowry's piece on "The Madness Lobby" should be required reader for everyone who wants to understand how ill-served the mentally ill as well as society at large have been as a result of viewing mental illness through the "human rights" prism.
