A recent Facebook post claims that Ontario Premier Doug Ford’s proposed changes to provincial social programs will end disability support for cancer patients. This is misleading: Ford’s government is considering changes to the definition of disability, but has not submitted any concrete amendments specifically targeting cancer patients.
