Sudbury’s M-P has introduced a private members bill in Parliament to create a national autism strategy.
Glenn Thibeault says it would help provide relief to those living with autism and their families.
Thibeault says autism doesn’t discriminate based on geography…what’s needed is the necessary funding for treatment.
Thibeault and his NDP colleague M-P Peter Stoffer, who seconded the bill, held an autism awareness event on Parliament Hill this afternoon.
Other M-P’s, Senators and their staff were given the opportunity to learn more about the different types of autism and meet members of the steering committee of the Canadian Autism Spectrum Disorder Alliance.
