(Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne Still Talking Down To Parents Not At Parents)
Yesterday Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne appeared as a co-host on CFRB 1010’s drive time talk show, where she discussed a wide range of topics including the autism protests, ABA and IBI therapy and the fact that she has been listening to parents. The autism conversation starts at 13:58 min mark on the below embedded podcast:
The first thing I want to say in response to this is that Wynne’s only concession through the #autismdoesntendat5 seems to be direct funding. Wynne is still talking down to the people of this province not to them. She has not been listening at all to parents, and her own expert panel on IBI therapy. In fact we are now going on month 3 of these protests with another scheduled for June 6th at Queens park. Consistently throughout the past 3 months in question period at Queens Park Liberal MPPs, Ministers, and herself have openly mocked parents concerns. Police have been called on parents by MPPs and half assed apologies offered as a result. The Ontario Liberals are showing signs of regressive policy, not progressive policy.
Readers should also pay attention to Wynne’s comments at the 17:57 mark as well on teachers unions. Apparently these unions have been calling their members during provincial elections and asking them to vote Liberal. I have a feeling that issues with these unions and school boards mis-spending money, isn’t over yet. I think we’re going to hear a lot more on that in the weeks and months ahead. I’ll be covering any breaking news regarding this on mindbendingpolitics, and also on my twitter feed. In the mean time, you can read more on the issues regarding school boards and teachers unions and my comments on the current crisis here.
