I Voted Yesterday for Adult Autism Residential Care and Treatment

Posted Sep 22 2010 12:46am
Most votes in the New Brunswick provincial election will be cast on the official election date next Monday, September 27, 2010. I took advantage of the beautiful last day of summer weather and walked to the advance poll in my riding of Fredericton-Nashwaaksis.  In this election there are five parties seeking to form the next provincial government ... the Conservative, Liberal, Green and NDP parties and a new party the Peoples Alliance of NB.  

In New Brunswick we have endured for many years a youth and  adult autism residential care and treatment system consisting of psychiatric hospitals, general hospital wards, the grounds of a youth detention center, out of province and out of country facilities, inadequate group homes with poorly trained staffs and ... community inclusion cliches.  Yesterday I voted for ...... the candidate and party most likely to work for a decent youth and adult autism residential care and treatment system.

It was, as I said, a beautiful day yesterday in Fredericton-Nashwaaksis. Hopefully the voting on September 27 will result in a government that cares about autistic adults and works toward establishing decent adult autism residential care in New Brunswick. That would make for a very beautiful day.
