Ontario Human Rights Commission investigating whether to make crackheads and alcoholics* a protected category

* I meant "cocaine-challenged and alcohol-deprived citizens"

No, I'm not making this up:
Toronto - The Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) launched a survey today to learn more about the human rights issues and barriers people with mental health and addiction disabilities face. The survey kicks off a broader consultation process on human rights and mental health-related issues.  
The questions are aimed at learning how discrimination because of a person’s mental health issue or addiction may affect their ability to find and keep a job, get an apartment or connect with education and health-related services.
