A gathering of parents, therapists, and union members took place outside of Queens Park today in protest of the Provincial governments changes to Ontario’s autism program.
The protest comes in the wake of changes that some parents say will leave their children without adequate access to the treatment they need.
Much of the anger from parents has been directed towards Minister of Social Services Lisa MacLeod.
MacLeod did not attend the protest, citing safety concerns.
However, leader of the opposition Andrea Horwath did attend the protest, and spoke to the crowds with words on encouragement.
“It is working” She said to the crowds.
Skedline reporter Natalia Yurieva will have the full coverage of the story from Queens Park on Monday.
