"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

Hurry Up and Wait Continues

It looks like that long-awaited mental health court will be a little bit longer in coming to Nova Scotia. It being announced today that it could be as late as the Fall before the court is ready to open. On account of it involving, you know, a major renovation and all.

In the meantime, I suppose we can always continue doing it the old-fashioned way, with the usual "public policy insanity ...cycl[ing] people through cops, courts and prisons without treating their underlying illnesses".

Seeing as how well that's worked for us in the past.
Yeah, sure, that's the ticket.
