where can i find a psychiatrist in Toronto?

Hi babblers:  I still have issues related to my diagnose (gender identity disorder). I do not know what I should do next or who I should talk to because I feel stuck.

 its so hard to find a psychiatrist , the only type of doctor who can diagnose a patient and is covered by OHIP, to do regular follow up with patients in Toronto. It costs 200 dollar a session to see a psychologist and over a 100 to see a psychotherapist, and psychiatrists can only be referred by your family doctor and I only got to see a psy...chiatrist for one time and they said they don't need to see me again.

 

does anyone know anything about seeing a psychiatrist, not just a therapist or a counsellor?

"Re-dating" expired bakery products ... and meat at grocery chains

I hope Mr Saffari has found another employer or line of work!

Supermarket workers are speaking out to CBC's Marketplace about how stores tamper with best-before dates and how it can make food unsafe.

For five years, Mohammad Saffari has worked as a bakery clerk at a Loblaws store in Montreal. He says he was told to change best-before dates on fresh or frozen bakery items such as cheesecakes, muffins and pastries that were weeks or months past the best-before date.

The tactics used to "ressurect" spoiled meat are even grosser, and far more dangerous to health.
