Two moms from northwestern Ontario say their severely autistic children have been left without treatment by Premier Doug Ford's changes to autism programs and they can't wait for a new plan to be unveiled next April.

"What more is it going to take to get this government's attention?" New Democrat MPP Monique Taylor (Hamilton Mountain) said Tuesday at a news conference where the two women fought back tears telling their stories.

The previous Liberal government's autism treatment plan wasn't perfect "but one thing was certain — my son had access to life-altering therapy," said Adrianna Atkins of remote Manitouwadge, a 4.5-hour drive east of Thunder Bay.
