It's bad enough that Professor Bonnie Burstow at the University of Toronto is the head of anti-psychiatry and the purveyor of an anti-psychiatry scholarship, but it goes well beyond that. She is actively attacking research and proud of it.
I want my daughter's best interests to be represented by the numerous disability rights organizations that have appeared in recent years. Sadly, these organizations, like the Council of Canadians with Disabilities, too often promote policies that pose real dangers to her. It's important to understand why a group like this would decide to hold these positions.
The University of Toronto has just established a scholarship for anti-psychiatry. Called the Bonnie Burstow Scholarship in Antipsychiatry, it is being praised by Scientology. As a graduate with two degrees from the U of T, I'm offended, as are many others.
