Supreme Court Turns Down Chance to Legislate

The Supreme Court of Canada denied leave to appeal for a group of Ontario parents seeking funding for their autistic children.

Good thing, too. It's not a good sign for democracy when people go to judges to get funding. The proper way to do it is to get Dalton McGuinty to pass legislation or regulations to directly fund the specialized treatment.

Either that, or McGuinty should lead the charge to remove the ban on private health insurance. Then maybe these kids would never have been put into this position. But let's not kid ourselves. Ontario Liberals would rather protect a flawed institution than suffering kids.
