Local MPP Bill Walker says the government’s ongoing inaction on the developmental disabilities file is hurting constituents in Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound.
Walker and the PC party have been urging the governing Liberals since last May to strike a select committee to develop a strategy to help developmentally disabled Ontarians. The directive was prompted by the passing of a resolution by the PC Health Critic MPP Christine Elliott after it received all-party support at Queen’s Park.
“This is what the House instructed them to do. It’s what my constituents with developmental disabilities need them to do,” Walker says. “The government cannot continue to sit on its hands any longer. It needs to strike the committee now.”
