An extremely embarrassing moment for every Canadian:

TORONTO (Reuters) – A Canadian province will shut its 24-hour suicide hotline and replace it with one that operates only during business hours. Prince Edward Island, a small province on Canada’s East Coast, says it is too expensive to operate the hotline around the clock. Starting June 1, it will be open only between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

I post this with trepidation – take a look.

If this were not shocking – it would be funny… but it is not funny at all.
