Private Member's Bill to Defund Electroshock

Kudos to MPP Cheri DiNovo for introducing a private member's bill to defund electroconvulsive/electroshock therapy in Ontario. The research is overwhelming: ECT is not safe and not effective. In the words of Dr. Bonnie Burstow, "the government should not be in the business of paying to brain damage its citizens."
