---#stand up to the big bullies in the government----------Ruth Adria of the Elder Advocates of Alberta Society stood alone as she was bullied by the system with reference to banning and retribution. Why was the government of Alberta, health authorities and the continuing care industry so afraid of this poor elderly woman that they would get security guards to force her out of their institutions and facilities? I guess it was because Ruth Adria is very brave and stands up for the elderly people who she advocates for. A fearless person is indeed someone to be afraid of. Shame on the government of Alberta for not doing its job with reference to the elderly! Shame on them for making an unjust law like the Trespass to Premises legislation without an independent appeal process! Shame on them for letting the system use the law for any damn reason it see fit and making victims out of heroines like Ruth Adria! Just who do these people think they are? I guess they think they are more powerful than the people of Alberta.

#stand up to the big bullies in the government--Ruth Adria of the Elder Advocates of Alberta Society is a tireless advocate for seniors and really all vulnerable citizens in Alberta. The government of Alberta should be ashamed of itself for allowing the ongoing pursuit by the continuing care industry and the health authority of this advocate in attempts to silence her. Just who do these folks all think they are? We're the people of Alberta. Our voices matter. And we're speaking. We're speaking about bullying by the system. We're speaking of intimidation. We're speaking of legal pursuit. We're speaking of the silencing of the lambs. But the lambs are now not waiting for wolves to tear us apart. We're joining with Ruth Adria to change an unjust system for our families.

Unprovoked banning of visitor at Caritas Hospitals

We have sent the attached along so that you may understand how determined the system is to frighten, discourage and get rid of me.
I was sitting quietly with a dying man, Konstanty (Ken) Stankiewicz on the evening of the 24th of October (He died on the 26th). His 93 year old wife went home to sleep, she was exhausted. I was sitting in a chair beside the dying man, in a dimly lit room. Staff were kind to me and even gave me a heated blanket – though I did not have conversation with them or discuss the care øf the dying man.
At 2:00 AM I became aware of two large uniformed persons standing in the darkened doorway, who asked me to step into the hallway.
The male constable demanded my license. He then read me my rights, cautioned me, told me to call a lawyer if I wished and said anything I said could be used against me. I was frightened (AND VERY TIRED) and said I did not wish to cause a problem but that I had been there that day/afternoon and often before, The male constable, who was the only one who addressed me, said that I should stop saying that because he would have to give me additional tickets for that. He filled out the attached.
He informed me that there was a restraining Order against me signed by a judge in the Misericordia Security office. I have never been served any documents, Restraining Order in this regard or was aware of what he was claiming.
I had been removed from the Misericordia Hospital on February 19, 2004 – note “Case Study” in www.elderadvocates.ca .
They walked me past the nursing station, out of the nursing home, to my car. Once outside, the male constable thanked me a number of times that I had been cooperative.
