Harper Deserves Credit on Mental Health Commission

OK - when Mr. Harper gets it right we need to say so. This time he has done just that...gotten it right. The big event today is the announcement today of the National Mental Health Commission. Look ignored and swept under the policy carpet -Canadians with mental health issue needs attention and do their families.

More kudos for Mr. Harper for appointing former Liberal Senator Michael Kirby to head it up. the Kirby Commission on health reform coming out of the Senate was the most comprehensive, intelligent and practical review of heath care reform for the country.

So one example of a nonpartisan, non patronage appointment does not absolve but it is evidence of hope for enlightened change from other recent appointments.

Good on ya Mr. Prime Minister.
