If you were up on the Old Sackville Road today  you may have noticed a group of protesters near the RCMP building. This was one of a few protests in the provice today addressing the handling of special needs patients when they lash out at their caretakers. Today, Patient Nichele Benn was fingerprinted by police and this is why the rallies were set for today. The issue is not new, however.
I had posted a story a while back about  this. It’s a complicated and sad situation for sure and I feel for everyone involved.  Hopefully something can be done to address this.  Check the above link for the story by Robert Devet.
