“I want to thank the Ombudsman and his whole team for their work on behalf of adults with developmental disabilities and their families.
Adults with developmental disabilities and their families have heard the Liberals make promise after promise that things would get better, even as they face the same old problems. They heard more promises today. This is not the leadership that people were promised, and they are being let down. As the Ombudsman said, “[w]ithout significant additional reform, many uniquely vulnerable people will continue to be lost in the system and experience harm because of inadequate supports and services.”
New Democrats believe in opportunity and security for everyone which is why the Ministry must immediately act on all of the Ombudsman's recommendations, and in particular get rid of waitlists for services.
