Costing out the Tories’ Autism Cuts. (Subtitle: Ontario could have given every child their Childhood Budget six months ago — they chose to make kids wait).

Conservative System I — Introduced Feb. 6 2019, Killed Mar. 21 2019. Never implemented.

Conservative System II — Introduced Mar. 21, 2019, Became Live on Apr. 1, 2019, First Childhood Budgets Received June 2019. Currently Live.

Conservative System III — Introduced Mar. 21, 2019, Killed Jul. 29, 2019. Never Implemented.

Conservative System IV — Introduced Jul. 29 2019, Details to be Released in Fall 2019. Planned Launch Date: April 2020.

Summary

  1. The original Conservative plan was a $100+ million dollar cut to health care for kids on the autism spectrum. That plan was killed after massive public outcry.
  2. The government could, if it so chose, eliminate the wait list under their current plan by simply approving the $600 million they’ve promised for six months, but have yet to do so.
  3. The government’s current plan is still a colossal waste of resources and should have never been implemented.
  4. We still have no idea what the government has planned for April 2020.
