Health Care: Mental Health Division

“It looked like a gorilla with a rag doll.”

October 19, 2012

WHITBY -- Norma Gunn has been the victim of 16 assaults at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences. An award-winning nurse, she is now struggling to recover from the last, which has left her with both physical injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Most shocking is the response from her employer, who left her to drive herself home after a six-minute beating. They are now trying to transfer her back to the main campus of the hospital where the man who beat her still resides.

Operation Maple has prepared this short video to allow Norma to tell her story. Warning, some of the descriptions in this video are very disturbing.
