ADULT GUARDIANSHIP AND TRUSTEESHIP ACTHome > Blog > ADULT GUARDIANSHIP AND TRUSTEESHIP ACT
It is shocking that members of the Alberta legislature have allowed the
proclamation of this Act into law. This legislation is a deliberate, calculated
assault on the seniors of this province.
We have documented the legislated abuse of well over twenty five
instances of those who have been or are being wrongly detained
because of unfair, inaccurate competency assessments. These seniors
languish in active treatment hospitals, care centers and mental hospitals
across this province. This does not include the many anecdotal accounts
of which we know.
These are Alberta citizens who have been stripped of all monies, property
& human rights. Those, who lost their rights under the Personal Directives
Act, have not even had a court hearing. Detaining a citizen without a
court hearing is a violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
