February 20th & 21st, 2014 @ 10:00 AM Thursday & Friday EDMONTON COURT HOUSE – Court of Queens Bench
APPLICATION BY COVENANT HEALTH FOR JUDICIAL REVIEW OF FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (FOIP) ADJUDICATOR’S DECISION.
Shauna McHarg, who is the subject of banning in regard to her parents who are residents at the Covenant Health Edmonton General Long Term Care Centre, has not been allowed to see her father for close to two years and is allowed to see her mother for one hour each day, Monday to Friday, between 3:00 PM & 4:00 PM.
No exceptions are permitted for Christmas, Easter, Birthdays or any special occasions. Attending at the court as observers will be individuals who have also been disallowed to visit loved ones.
This is a big issue in the care of the elderly, that family & friends are often disallowed to attend to their loved ones. If they persist, believing they have a right to visit a publicly funded institution (after all this is Canada), Peace Officers, Police or RCMP are called and the visiting person may be treated like a common criminal, may be issued a Trespass ticket ($275.), handcuffed and removed. Under the TRESPASS TO PREMISES ACT no reason has to be given for the banning.
A verbal order by a security officer is enough to totally ban an individual for five years. The Act is used to control, bully and abuse.
