Video: Social services minister avoids NDP question about privatized mail sorting at ODSP

Children, Community and Social Services Minister Merrilee Fullerton avoided the question and changed the subject when asked in Question Period to end privatized mail sorting in the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), which has led to delayed and suspended ODSP benefits for vulnerable clients.

NDP MPP Lise Vaugeois demanded that the Minister stop contracting out mail sorting to for-profit company Nimble, noting, “The civil service already has a mail room. Why are we contracting out to another private organization to sort the mail, which they are bungling?”
