MPs and Mental Health Awards

  1. Congratulations! You sold a lot of pharmaceuticals today.

    • That's not necessarily a bad thing.

    • Kitty, why don't you peek at the member organizations responsible for this event. They don't make drugs. They help people struggling with mental illness. Please, class up a bit.

  2. I'd be more impressed with Peter MacKay and Gen. Walter Natyncyk's presence – if I thought either of them was taking PTSS seriously – and not trying to make out our forces are faking it…

  3. I wonder how many will be healed of their mental disorder because of this awards dinner?

  4. Is it just me or doesn't Walt Natynchyk bear a striking resemblance to Darrell Dexter? At first glance I thought the picture was the announcement of an infrastructure project on the Armdale Rotary.

    • At first glance, I thought it was Bill Graham.
