Ontario Minister for Disabled Persons Remo Mancini misrepresents Thomson, ignores human rights issues.; 1988.
Jon Boynton, of the Ontario Office for Disability Issues, had been supportive and understood the reasons for demedicalizing disability. The Ontario Minister Responsible for Disabled Persons says sensitivities result from a variety of disorders, that various Ministries and federal agencies are addressing the needs of persons with sensitivities, acknowledges the relevance of indoor mould infestations, but then says no official recognition can be made. While sensitivities have been known to medicine for centuries, Mancini states that some "recognition" of a disease entity is necessary before the issues he is not responding to can be addressed. Remo Mancini also misrepresents the Thomson report, which identified an existing, publicly insured method of diagnosis, one that is still, today, encouraged by the College of Family Physicians of Ontario.
