Reincarnation therapy for the unemployed???

Well, truth is stranger than fiction....will this come to Canada???
The municipality of Maastricht has pressurised unemployed people to follow reincarnation therapy. Uncooperative welfare recipients were told that their attitude could have consequences for their allowance, local newspaper De Limburger reported Friday.

The Social Services, which grants allowances and attempts to get recipients back to work, urged at least one unemployed resident of Maastricht to accept the guidance of a reincarnation therapist. Returning' to a previous life, would supposedly help them regain their balance and enhance their chances of finding work.

The local newspaper was tipped off by local councillor John Steijns. As leader of a local party, the politician came across documents revealing the alleged spiritual tendencies of the Maastricht government apparatus.

The responsible alderman Luc Winants (Social Affairs) did not wish to dismiss the initiative for now. "It might very well be true that reincarnation therapy is a means to get people back to work", said his spokesman Joep Delsing.
