John Tory tries revisionist history on autism



    TORONTO, Sept. 7 /CNW/ - This morning the questionable judgment of John
Tory's Conservative campaign was on display again as they launched their next
negative attack.
    In today's new negative commercial, Tory takes a revisionist view of the
Conservative history of turning their backs on children with autism.
    McGuinty Liberals promised in the 2003 campaign to end the Conservative
discriminatory age cut-off, and to work with experts to expand services for
kids, no matter what their age.
    In 2005, the age cut-off was removed. And funding for services for
children with autism has more than tripled to $140 million, services have been
expanded so twice as many kids are being served, and now we're taking the next
step by expanding IBI therapy to be delivered in schools for the first time.
    As for the lawsuit - it was filed in 2002 against the Conservative
government.
    Just one more mess Ontario Liberals had to clean up that Conservatives
left behind.
