And now from Mr. Rich Coleman the Housing Minister in B.C., Canada we have an unusual solution being proposed to handle the financial and personal devastation caused by the housing crisis.
Mr. Coleman proposes reclassifying homeless people as ‘mentally ill’ so that they can be forcibly removed from the street and placed in institutions.
“There are provisions under the Mental Health Act for a committal and that sort of thing. I think we need to have some stronger provisions for this sort of situation.”

‘Mein Kampf’ by the distinguished 20th century humanitarian Adolf Hitler lends support to the Mr. Coleman’s theory.
It crosses my mind that possibly the politicians and bankers who are the most responsible for people being homeless in the first place would be more ideal candidates for psychiatric torture.
One has to assume that the drug companies need some cheap guinea pigs for this proposal to be seriously aired. Cui bono?
My thanks to Karol Karolak for bringing the weird and somewhat scary Mr. Coleman to my attention.
