NDP put politics before principle on autism



    Proof that a vote for the NDP is a vote for Conservative cuts

    TORONTO, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - Howard Hampton and the NDP have yet again
demonstrated they always put politics ahead of principle - especially when it
comes to children with autism, said Liberal Campaign Chair Greg Sorbara.
    "The McGuinty Liberals ended the unfair age cutoff, more than tripled
investments for children with autism and more than doubled the number of kids
receiving IBI therapy. The NDP voted against those investments," said Sorbara.
"It's beyond cynical to use these families as the NDP have."
    Sorbara noted when the NDP were in office, they did not offer any program
for children with autism.
    In the 2003 election campaign, Howard Hampton's platform did not contain
the word "autism". By contrast the Ontario Liberals ran on, and exceeded
commitments to autistic children.
    There is more to do, but it won't get done by Howard Hampton holding a
photo-op while having no positive plan for Ontario families.
    "The NDP put politics before principle," said Sorbara. "It's vintage NDP
negativity to hold a photo-op press conference and offer no ideas of their own
to help families or children. This proves that a vote for the NDP is a vote
for Conservative cuts to autistic children."
    McGuinty Liberals will continue to move forward working with parents. Our
next step is to prepare schools to provide IBI therapy on-site, for the first
time.
