Nova Scotia Refuses To Help All Autistic Children

Despite calls for expansion of its successful autism early intervention program the government of Nova Scotia is refusing to expand the program to help those autistic children who are excluded from treatment under Nova Scotia's immoral lottery system for assigning spaces in the program. When asked by Liberal MLA Greg Gavine "Why isn’t the government committing this money to help families like Jim Young and their children coping with autism?" Health Minister Chris d’Entremont responded that that there’s lots of competition for money.

Apparently NS Health Minister d'Entremeont subscribes to the "Do Nothing For Autistic Children" principles of former federal Health Minister Tony Clement.
