Ministry Responds To My Open Letter To Minister Coteau



As many of you may remember I wrote an open letter to the Ontario Minister of Children and Youth Services Micheal Coteau regarding some concerns I had with the transition process, and with my son’s situation.  I was hoping for a direct response from Minister Coteau instead I received this (sorry for the chicken scratch, this is the number of the individual from the ministry that wrote this letter.  I was hung up on 3 times by the contact they gave me before I got to the program manager):


For a Minister willing to meet with parents, Coteau seems extremely illusive to direct communication with those who are trying to reach him.  Apparently we’re getting busy signals.  As for my sons situation, apparently IBI still ends at 5 accounting to Cantkier, and she is unwilling to budge on giving my son the appropriate therapy he has been recommended by specialists and other medical professionals.  More soon.

    Wow! This is unacceptable! They don’t seem to understand that this is not an awareness campaign, but a real problem with a real person – a child. There are a few good reporters here in Toronto, who did great job following some other Autism problems (personal stories) last year. Media involved already?

      It is unacceptable. I’ve got a few in traditional media that are following my blog posts on a regular basis. There’s a story that’s evolving as to why this is happening. I’m also in contact with Coteau’s senior policy adviser. I’ll be posting that conversation soon.
