This will be short. I don’t believe in Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce. I believe the NFL and Swift officials got together and hatched a plan to boost the NFL’s five-year-decreasing ratings (to attract more female viewers) and give her a boost in three to five years when she dies. financially make a residence in Las Vegas possible.

In 2018, Doug Ford became Premier of Ontario. During his term, he promised to increase access to services for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). He had previously announced that he would work through the autism waiting list, which at the time stood at 23,000, in 18 months. October 2023: Four years later, more than 60,000 children are on the waiting list. Early intervention is crucial to the diagnosis and treatment of ASD and this is clearly not the case under the current government plan (or lack thereof). This government is failing these children and families in Ontario. Where is the responsibility? Where is the transparency? Families have received no timelines, no updates and no clarity about the waiting list. Many families have had to make difficult decisions such as: staying home and not working to provide full-time care; pay more than $50,000 out of pocket; be on a waiting list for an indefinite period of time; or moving to a province that can provide timely funding and services. The number of children on the waiting list is growing every year and this government has not announced a plan to adequately address the waiting list and ensure that every child receives the resources they need to purchase the services that will improve their quality of life and their future can support. On October 16, the Ontario Autism Coalition will protest at Queen’s Park in Toronto. We invite your families, friends and everyone else to attend the event and express their dissatisfaction and disgust at this government’s lack of commitment to these children.

(It doesn’t matter which government is in power, it does not appear to be adequately meeting the needs of children with autism. This is indicative of failures in all aspects of our healthcare system.)
