The “Operating in Darkness” report states the provincial Mental Health Act allows patients in confinement to be restrained to their beds, giving unwanted drug treatments and, losing their right to cloths.

The issue regarding this article is President Trump’s decision to bomb Syria and his sudden change of heart. Once he saw pictures of dead children he says his attitude towards Syria and Assad changed instantly. The media is applauding him for his change of heart, but this article argues that Trump doesn’t truly care. He says he was touched by the children being gassed to death, but still bans them from entering the country. It’s hypocritical.
