Dream Team Human Rights Complaint
ACTO was retained to represent nine psychiatric survivors in human rights complaints against a Member of Provincial Parliament. The M.P.P. had circulated a letter opposing supportive housing, and submitted it to the Committee of Adjustment of the City of Toronto where a supportive housing group was asking for support for a small development. The letter implied that people with mental health issues cause social disorder and contribute to crime and contained other derogatory comments.
The complaints were filed at the Human Rights Commission on January 31, 2008 and served on the M.P.P. In June, 2008, the case was settled at mediation. As part of the settlement, the Dream Team (and their lawyers) agreed to keep the terms of the settlement confidential. The file is now closed.
