Nice work ‘Citizen Network’ in creating this fantastic video on citizenship!
Institutionalized Model of Care
This audio link is connected to an interview on CBC with Katie Rossiter, a Professor at Wilfred Laurier. She frames the inherent dangers of an institutionalized model of care and the painful experiences shared by survivors of Ontario’s institutions (Huronia) . While the interview is excellent, please note the inaccuracies in the closing remarks. The funding is not ministry based but is a direct result of class actions suits, in particular the remaining amount of funds that could not be claimed by survivors as they did not have a ‘voice’ in expressing the injustices they faced.
Premier Kathleen Wynne’s apology to Ontario citizens for their painful experience(s) caused by Ontario’s institutionalized model of care.
