Canadians Unite!

Here's a site where a petition is being circulated to allow 12-year old Canadian Gabriel Lavigueur back in secondary school. He's been kicked out for refusing to take psychiatric drugs: just more psychiatry at work. There are so many other things that can be wrong in the life of a child -- psychiatrists seem to always reach for the drugs first, and of course hammer their solution home by force instead of checking for the obvious: Is the kid hungry? Tired? Is he being bullied by his classmates? Does he have allergies? Does he have another medical situation?
