Something different to start off this month, I thought I would talk about keywords used to enter the website, such as via google or bing. These sort of things can be very amusing other times typical.
My favourite for 2010 was 'lake alice haunted' quite a few people used that one, still getting our kicks are we people. Others where 'how many people died there' or 'where is lake alice, (hmm I wonder) It's funny what people ask google lol and then there was people who need to learn to spell Alice not Ellis. Over all most people just stuck to the usual 'lake alice'.
I am pleased though that the website is seen not just by NZ but by wide variety of other country's.
Keep a eye out on the Uncovering the Truth page. Over the next few months I will be contributing to this, documents from a past patient displaying his journey from when he first laid his complaint against Dr Leeks and the Child and Adolescent unit in the late 1970's up until current with the UN report. Every piece tells a honest battle that has been fought and will not be lost, this is a fight not only by one patient but by many, just one who was brave enough back in 1970's to speak out against the abuse at Lake Alice. We will go back to the start and show you where it all began!
Speaking of corruption,
Grant Camerons law firm (GCALawyers) is back and just in time to suck money out of hard up New Zealanders at Christmas time, who have loved ones who have been in a psychiatric hospital. This time Mr Camerons firm is working at a so called 'significantly reduced charge' to help a family who's son died while in the care of the Canterbury District Health Board. Due to losing a civil case against the DHB they are liable for $11,000 after the case was dismissed. Mr Cameron I think this family haven't got any money, why are you charging them? You should be doing this for free. The government paid you almost 2 million dollars from the Lake Alice compensation and all you had to do was sit on your ass. Something a former female patient said to me recently about Mr Cameron. In a television interview when the compensation was won, she recalls Grant Cameron saying 'he would have done it for nothing'. I'll just leave you all with that as a last thought, Keep in mind the fees had to come out of there compensation, practically half. See Uncovering the Truth for more!

Best wishes for 2011!
