The Federal government is giving something called the Mental Health Commission of Canada (GOD HELP US!!!) $110 million dollars for five research projects across the country. This will be to determine the "best treatments" for people with drug addictions and mental problems.
$110 million dollars.
Don't you get it, kids?
Nothing will be done. All the money will go to "research." Doctors and professors will win contracts. The homeless and the addicted and the ill will continue to be homeless and addicted and ill.
Imagine me agreeing with the Portland Hotel Society about anything. But this morning they pointed out that you could but a lot of housing for $110 million.
Imagine $110 million going into housing and known existing treatments.
Don't you get it?
Here is THE RULE: WHEN YOU SEE A GOVERNMENT FUNDING RESEARCH FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN HARD SCIENCE, YOU ARE SEEING A GOVERNMENT THAT WILL NEVER ACT. It's a classic stalling technique.

Clarence Hansen is the Vancouver School Board Chair.
He's backing The Isolated One because he says that the man "has a vision for where he wants to take the city."
Who is this guy? Who elected him? What town is he living in? What year?
I nominate Mr. Hansen for the Most Out of Touch With Reality Oscar.
