CUPE local invited Liz Sandals to visit the Holiday Home Group Home to mark CUPE’s annual Developmental Services Worker Appreciation Day.

Beats Question Period?

Ontario’s education minister, local MPP Liz Sandals, got an education in what happens at group homes Friday. She visited the Holiday Home Group Home on Silvercreek Parkway at the invitation of CUPE Local 4392, whose members staff the facility. Sandals said she was impressed that the residents exercise to music at 11:30 a.m., and she joined in. “It would be much more productive than Question Period” at Queen’s Park, she quipped.
The Canadian Union of Public Employees, which represents 8,000 direct support workers in developmental services in Ontario, is asking the provincial government to inject more money and take other steps to address problems in the system. Sandals said that while she has visited programs of ARC Industries, the Adult Rehabilitative Centre run by Community Living Guelph Wellington, she has never before visited a group home run by the agency. She said the CUPE local invited her to visit the Holiday Home Group Home to mark CUPE’s annual Developmental Services Worker Appreciation Day.
