Psychiatric and Psychological Injuries Will be Defined As MINOR Injuries. Fair?
As of April 23, the actual ICBC legislation to be voted on by MLAs defines “minor injuries” as including “psychiatric injuries” like depression or PTSD – even if CHRONIC. Unfortunately, depression is usually a major injury. Patients who have depression often face debilitating lives. Suicide attempts are not uncommon.
This is a disgrace and shows a stigma against the mentally ill. Please speak to advocacy groups, your MLA and friends and tell them you are against the NDP ICBC proposals.
