A major cabinet shuffle in the Ford government on June 20 has Sudbury's autism parents feeling slightly more optimistic about the future of the Ontario Autism Program.

Numerous ministers within Ontario premier Doug Ford's government were moved around during a massive cabinet overhaul on June 20, including Lisa McLeod, the former minister of children, community and social services, who came under fire from parents over her handling of the province's autism program.

McLeod has been moved to the tourism, culture and sport portfolio, and Bay of Quinte MPP Todd Smith was moved from economic development to McLeod's former role as the minister responsible for children, community and social services.
