This Blog will discuss politics, government, corruption, police, S.I.U., courts, education, min. of attorney general, min. of labour, v.o.i.c.e. and other current and past events of interest to concerned citizens. In the "About me" section to the right and down I have included the names of persons whom I have tremendous respect for. Their influence on me however has been primarily environmental (and personal) and this is therefore a disclaimer that all words posted on this Blog/Website are mine and I alone am responsible for them. I say this with the greatest respect and affection to my friends.

ONTARIO SCREWS ITS OWN CITIZENS VIA WSIB
Today's Waterloo Region Record carrys the following story titled "Help for serious injuries lessening". The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) have been turning the screws on injured workers in order to cut costs for the last five years according to various critics and advocates for injured workers' rights. It is always heartwarming to know that our democratically elected governments are willing and able to aid and abet employers with unsafe working conditions in order to further harass and penalize injured workers.
The Toronto Star have been investigating WSIB practices and an apparent shift in culture as to how they evaluate permanent impairments. Allegedly the WSIB have been identifying pre-existing conditions possibly unrelated to the specific injury in order to reduce permanent impairment ratings for injured workers. All of this allegedly and apparently in order to help the province's bottom line at the expense of already victimized Ontario residents and citizens. It would be interesting to know as to whether the province gives incentive bonuses to managers or program directors who sucessfully lower payouts to injured workers.
