If you were up on the Old Sackville Road today  you may have noticed a group of protesters near the RCMP building. This was one of a few protests in the provice today addressing the handling of special needs patients when they lash out at their caretakers.

Today, Patient Nichele Benn was fingerprinted by police and this is why the rallies were set for today. The issue is not new, however.
I had posted a story a while back about  this. It’s a complicated and sad situation for sure and I feel for everyone involved.  Hopefully something can be done to address this.  Check the above link for the story by Robert Devet.

About Jeff Nielsen

For people who love Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia! A lot of us lovingly call it “Sack-Vegas” which I personally find hilarious. I hope to have this column be a place for us to discuss our hometown, poke fun at ourselves (nothing too derogatory about our town though), post some old or current pics….whatever we want to do with it.
