Ableism

What’s his relationship with people with disabilities?

Ford has shown he doesn’t care what happens to people with disabilities, going so far as to be outright against them, and spreading fear and hate.

What’s an example of this?

As a councillor in 2014, Ford backed constituents who protested opening a home for children with autism in their neighbourhood. Ford used words like ‘ruined the community’ and said that children with ‘violent behaviour’ would leave the home without supervision.  

Are any of his policies impacting people with disabilities?

Ford’s cuts to ODSP will leave many people who depend on the disability support in poverty.
