The ‘depressed’ Protest Against ‘Delusional Calgara’

The term delusional was removed and the name was shortened as Calgaria. But this has failed to soothe advocates who feel that the content and presentation// continue to insult those afflicted by mental sickness.

“I realize they were just trying to be light-hearted about this, but those of us living with mental illness who have to face the stigma found it quite insulting,” said Roy Muir, who suffers from depression and sits on the board for the National Network for Mental Health.

The Delusional Calgaria symptoms listed were, blurry vision, alienation and the thinking $480,000 is a normal price for a single-bedroom house.

Nova Scotia government spokeswoman Stacey Jones-Oxner said the crusade was against oil-rich Calgary and they never wished to hurt those with mental sickness.

"It was never our intention to offend anyone," said Jones-Oxner. "I think most people are understanding our intention, which was to inform Nova Scotians about the good things happening in our province, but we took those concerns very seriously."

Jean Hughes, vice-president of the Canadian Mental Health Association took this opportunity to point out how little the Government had done for mental health in the province.

Though the usage of the word “delusional” might have hurt, the mental health community should not waste time on small matters as they had more important battles to fight said a local health advocate.

“Making an issue over every little thing doesn’t serve us well,” said Fay Herrick of the Calgary chapter of the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta.

“But I think that it’s important we are all careful about the language we use, whether we’re talking about religion, culture, health issues or the human brain.”
