From the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba

...It is difficult to believe that in the year 2001 a Manitoban politician spoke in the provincial Legislature in support of a discredited 1990s pop psychotherapy fad that started in the late 1980s, caused great harm to thousands of innocent lives before it began to flame out in 1996. I and many others are deeply interested in the recognized professional sources that the minister referred to in the House in support of these sexual abuse psychotherapy ideas and Bill 8.

I understand there are a few die-hard feminists living in some sort of a time capsule, desperately unwilling to admit the demise of the repressed childhood memories idea. If you detect a sense of anger in my voice, I make no apologies for it. The time is long overdue for politicians in Canada to recognize the incredible amount of harm done by the ravages of fraudulent recovered memory therapy...
