Autism Hunger Strike Has Ended

Autism hunger striker Stefan Marinoiu ended his two week hunger strike yesterday. Stefan's efforts brought much attention to the cause of autistic persons and their families in Canada and impressed upon public decision makers in Ottawa and Toronto the seriousness of the Autism Crisis in Ontario and Canada.

It is a relief to me, and I am sure to his family and many friends and admirers, that Stefan has decided to end this stage of his autism advocacy and move ahead with other efforts. The determination that Stefan has demonstrated with his 11 day mid-winter Autism Trek from Toronto to Ottawa and his two week Autism Hunger Strike will come in handy in the continuing effort to obtain proper autism treatment, education and residential care in Ontario and elsewhere in Canada.
