At issue are remarks MacLeod — now the minister of tourism, culture and sport — made after getting off the inaugural summer Porter Airlines flight from Toronto landing at Muskoka Airport near Gravenhurst.

"I used to be the minister of tears but as you can see from here I'm now the minister of cheers and it's a real nice refresher," MacLeod quipped Thursday, using the term government insiders bandy about for her former portfolio because it has been dominated by the politically sensitive autism file.

Meanwhile, on Friday, a scathing report written by a backbench PC MPP on the government's autism changes surfaced, saying the province's wait list of 23,000 children who need services is "unverified" and "likely inaccurate."
