Minna Mettinen-Kekalainen: recent developments

Yesterday (Monday), Steven Drake over at Not Dead Yet posted several new developments in the situation of Minna Mettinen-Kekalainen and noted that "things are looking up and Minna (and maybe others) can get the support she needs and is currently doing without". Here is the introduction to his post:

First, over the weekend, Minna's denial of in-home support went from a regional story to a national one in Canada. The Canadian Press picked up her story and it is now being disseminated all over Canada. This is a link to the story on Metronews.ca.

Encouragingly, this story focuses on the consequences of Minna's withdrawal of personal care, and on the determination of MPP France Gelinas, quoted in Friday's blog entry, to see this through and also to determine how many other people are being affected similarly.
