Your Move, Ontario 2.0

Doug Ford and Peter AthanasopoulosWe’d like to thank our community for active participation in our campaign these past few months. As election day in Ontario approached, we prepared for all outcomes, including a majority PC government, and we will be moving forward, amplifying our community’s voice and ensuring representation at Queen’s Park for people with SCI in the same collaborative manner that we have been doing with every government for over 70 years.  We look forward to working with the PC Government on matters that are important to our community and we congratulate all parties for bringing forward platforms that carried honest efforts to make Ontario greater.

Here are some results from our campaign:

  • 668 emails sent by our community to candidates
  • 121 candidate responses to our questionnaire on accessibility
  • Four major parties confirmed meeting with SCIO within 100 days of election

In the weeks leading up to the election, I met briefly with Doug Ford (see June 5 photo) and members of other parties to communicate our priorities, and shall continue to work for a more inclusive and equitable Ontario on behalf of our community.

Thank you for your support!

Peter Athanasopoulos
Senior Manager, Government Relations & Public Policy
