Alberta WCB SHIELDS Corporations who Seriously Injure and Kill workers PART #2

This is a follow up to my last blog entry. Here is a comment from Brian Fitzpatrick that he made about an electrician who was electrocuted and killed while working on a Suncor site in Ft. McSpooge. Brian Fitzpatrick made this comment in the Gobe and Mail on April 20, 2014. I am posting this because he is basically saying the exact same thing that I said in my last post. Here it is the link to the story http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/suncor-employee-dies-at-oil-sands-site/article18073470/comments/
Here is his comment:



Brian Fitzpatrick 143 days ago
I too agree that accidents do happen. But not all 'accidents' are accidental.

Too many serious injuries and deaths occurs to workers who are victims of their employer's reckless disregard for their safety.

Often such incidents are neither casual nor inadvertent. Often they are the result of studious and willful planning which persisted over an extended period of time.

In the past 10 years, 9,000 Canadian workers were killed at work. All of these deaths were not the result of accidents.

Few , not more than about two or 3 employers were charged under criminal law and nobody went to jail. All cases dismissed.

Many of these injuries and deaths were caused by an employer's willful neglect of an employee's safety which resulted in serious injury or death.

If an incident of this nature; disregard for others safety occurred away from the job site, the police would be involved in a Charter approved criminal investigation.

Workers do not receive proper police investigations nor are they allowed access to civil court.

Workers are not equally protected by the Charter.

The Worker's Compensation Board (WCB) and or Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) OHS are in charge.

The WCB and the OHS are not the police.

The WCB and OHS have effectively immunized reckless employers from criminal law.

In Canada, manslaughter, a form of murder punishable by up to 25 years in prison is not a crime if it occurs while one is at work.
Here is Brian Fitzpatrick's second comment:


Brian Fitzpatrick
Just to be clear: when I indicated in my previous post that some injuries and deaths of workers can be the result of studious planning by an employer, I wasn't saying there was intent or malice involved in the studious but reckless planning.

That would be murder.

I was merely stating that serious incidents are often the result of long term stupidity/recklessness with regard to safety on the part of an employer who knowingly exposes workers to known dangers.

In other words: closing both eyes to a risky plan or action. One can still see after closing a blind eye.

The WCB and OHS were created to mitigate this reality on behalf of workers. The greatest success that the WCB and OHS has achieved is to deny workers their Charter right to be secure in their person while at work by immunizing employers from criminal charges.

Some employers are unconcerned with the consequences of a charge of manslaughter when, as is the case in Canada, reckless disregard for safety resulting in death is not a crime if it occurs on the work site.

It is merely an infraction of the Worker's Compensation Act. No biggie.

I hope this clears up my previous and somewhat clumsy comment.

Alberta WCB 100% INSULATES corporations from criminal charges for KILLING workers! BEWARE

  Here is a link to a business in the State of California that was investigated, charged and then fully penalized with CASH fines and penalties totalling $1 Million dollars USD for killing a worker in a knitting machine http://www.businessinsurance.com/article/20140910/NEWS08/140919986?tags=|70|329|75|304|92. This kind of investigation and subsequent prosecution will NEVER happen as long as the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta continues to run Hellberta. Because of the current PC Party corruption crisis, CIBC Bank has sent in their best trained Political Mercenary that the Harper government can spare.
  Alberta Justice Department uses what it likes to call "Creative Sentencing". Creative Sentencing is literally another kickback scheme that the WCB of Ab funnels directly back to the Foreign owned Transnational Corporations. This corrupt practice makes sure that the offending employer who carelessly KILLS workers will get most of their fines BACK in the form of bogus training centers run by THE company who killed your loved one.
 Q. Who was the last Justice Minister before Alison Redford became Premier of Alberta?
    A. Alison Redford is correct.
Rick Caron and his injured wife Penny took undeniable proof of Document Tampering at the WCB Appeals Commission to then Justice Minister Alison Redford asking her to investigate. She returned a hand signed letter stating that "There was no evidence of impropriety or document tampering within the Appeals Commission". It is my opinion that on that day Alison Redford broke the Law in Alberta.
Knowingly signing false documentation as the sitting Justice Minister is grounds for criminal charges without a doubt in my mind.
  A Fascism style government of super corrupt corporately PAID for government cronies CANNOT exist without the explicit complicity of the National Constabulary {RCMP}. And now you know the WHY in why the RCMP and ALL City Police Departments in Alberta refuse to investigate ANY complaints about FRAUD activities within the Alberta Workers Compensation Board and its Satellite offices like the Appeals Commission.
  There is ONE {1} constant in the behavior of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and all other Cop/Firemen and Government worker organizations: There are 2 Rules when you F/U as a Cop/ Government worker.
  Rule #1: Cover your own ASS! The acronym CYOA is spoke fluently in Cop and Gov. worker circles.
  Rule #2: If millions of taxpayer dollars to blame somebody else fails: For Gods Sake CYOA!
Killing workers with reckless policies and then blaming some else for your failure to protect workers under your command is S.O.P. {Standard Operating Procedure} for Cops/Government in Hellberta. Here in Canada the Mr. Big Sting by our national constabulary is used widely to INSULATE Cops from their culpability. Bogus Ab Justice fines maintain a Litigious Insulation Blanket around Foreign owned corporations, thus saving them from expensive litigation. WCB Alberta is Bulletproof Litigious INSULATION blanket protecting Cops/Government and PC Crony Corporations from prosecution for recklessly endangering workers under their command.

Alberta WCB Fucks over Disabled Workers who are NOT Cops/Firemen/Government workers

  The cops in this town are so flaccid they cannot even investigate a WCB doctor who lied to me about who he was, that amounts to fraudulent misrepresentation. Dr. Leslie de Lima committed a physical assault when he took off my neck collar and squeezed my neck until I screamed out! The Hospital and the WCB CROOK Doctors cannot claim I signed a release paper, because there is no release paper in the world that is legal and binding when the patient is under severe duress and has just suffered a Spinal trauma injury that necessitates heavy sedation on morphine. My signature on any release means nothing before a court of law since I lacked mental capacity after suffering my fall and breaking my back.
  The only thing the RAH emerg doctor told me was if I did not have surgery immediately I would become a Quadrapalegic. I was under severe mental and physical Duress driven by FEAR!
Newsflash: You never hear about WCB AB pulling this shit on Cops! Because they know the cops have guns and what would happen if they ever tried any of this shit on a Cop. Bam! Bam!, Bam, Bam, Bam, Bam! Reload. No surpise the Harper Federal gang of crooks has 8 ex-Cops that I know of.

This is what the WCB of Alberta has bastardized the WCB Meridith Principle into. This is NOT a legitimate Workers Compensation Insurance scheme, this is Legalazed FRAUD towing in over 1 Billion dollars per year. The very existence of Seriously Injured Workers who cannot get access to medical treatments, scans and medications is proof that the WCB of Alberta is a Government Sponsored FRAUD scheme. Police Departments FULLY support this fraudulent organization, why?    The Cops could care less about protecting the public, they ONLY care that THEY as Government Employees are fully covered, they get to go to legitimate Medical Rehabilitation like the Glenrose Hospital in Edmonton. CYOA cops eat donuts and allow Disabled Persons to be willfully defrauded by the WCB of Alberta, at the whim and will of the CEO himself Guy Kerr.

  The 1982 Charter of Rights and Freedoms was designed by Pierre Elliott Trudeau and the Premiers of Canada to protect the rights of vulnerable persons facing racial discrimination and those who are permanently disabled and facing discrimination. The Harper government and the Alberta PC's have embarked on a deliberate plan to "Bring Back Discrimination" and are making a legislative mockery of the Charter of Rights in Canada.

15) Equality Rights: Equality before and under the law and equal protection and benefit of law

(1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.

  This brings me to Guy Kerr is godamned fraud and a criminal is my opinon, and the last time I looked it is not illegal to have an opinion yet.
Fundamental Freedoms       

Section 2)  Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
(a) freedom of conscience and religion;
 (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and
      expression, including freedom of the press and
      other media of communication;
  (c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
   (d) freedom of association.

Harper has not made opinions illegal just yet, but his team of sleazy lawyers and ex-Cops are working hard on this problem. Kerr and his entire board are getting filthy RICH abusing the rights guaranteed under the Charter of Rights for disabled workers.

   I run the ONLY functional and current web page in Canada exposing the crimes of the Workers Compensation Board of Alberta. I am the only person who has any balls at all to stand up to these fraudulent PC bastards. I am permanently disabled. That is a fact. The Workers Compensation Board of Alberta heinous abuse of my rights exposes how easy it is for these crooked bastards to abuse a Disabled Person in Canada. I hope these crooked pricks rot in friggin' hell, or under the wheels of a large truck will suffice.

Dr. Lorri Galbraith is totally fine with abusing the Rights of Injured Workers and WILL be compelled to Testify

  Dr. Lorri Galbraith is totally well versed in abusing the rights of Seriously Injured Workers for the sole purpose of denying NON-Government workers the right to appeal decisions. She is also very deft at working vigilantly to deny them their Procedural Fairness Rights, by using crooked methodology to complete an end-run around the Alberta WCB Appeals Commission.

Guy Kerr the crooked PC Crony bastard mourns the loss of the WCB of Alberta's Dr. Lorri the Hack Galbraith at the Court of Queens Bench. Dr. Lorri Galbraith and her band of Crooked and bigoted Claims Managers failed to avoid having Crooked WCB Hacks and Quacks doctors testify in front of not only the WCB Appeals Commission, but ANY court of Law.
  Abusing the Rights of seriously injured workers is Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the WCB Hacks and Quacks doctors who troll our major city hospitals in Alberta. As you already know, the Royal Alex Hospital in Edmonton is the designated WCB Hospital in Northern Alberta, this is a fact that Alberta Health Services will confirm.
  In the Court of Queens Bench case Johnson v. Alberta (Appeals Commission for Alberta Workers’ Compensation), 2011 ABCA 345 , this was a landmark decision on Procedural Fairness in 2011, 6 years after the WCB of Alberta denied William Johnson benefits.
  This landmark decision preserved and vindicated all injured workers Natural Justice Rights to cross-examine the Hacks and Quacks doctors posing as medical witnesses. William Johnson was seeking relief in his Appeal from the routine WCB of Alberta practice of producing false Medical evidence in order for the WCB AB to deny Seriously Injured Workers their rights to proper, timely and relevant medical scans, treatments and medications. Hellberta. Dr. Lorri Galbraith and 3 other hacks doctors lost their bid to be faceless anonymous Hack doctors who falsely malign seriously injured workers.
  These doctors are fully licensed by the CPSA, and the directors of the College of Physicians Surgeons of Alberta are fully cognizant of how seriously damaging these bogus doctors Medical Reports are to patient care. This kind of corporate abuse is fully supported by the College, the College is operating with the full knowledge of how damaging these phony College approved Doctors are when they produce false reports about patients they have never met
  The College of Physicians only cares about licensing bogus doctors that they are instructed to license by some of the most influential corporate crony doctors in Alberta. Just another CROOK organization that is polluting our Health Care system in Alberta is my opinion. Sickens me to know this is going on, and was designed by top PC cronies in Hellberta.
  Here is the link to Dr. Leslie DeLima place of employment, notice how the map location is wrong but the address for the WCB @ 9912-107street in downtown Edmonton is correct. 
  Dr. Lorri Galbraith lives on with these same aspirations today given that there are NO consequences to her Quack behavior as a hack WCB Shill doctor. A Shill sells people down the road for money, while hiding who they represent. She also wrote a bogus medical report on my medical condition, Dr. Lorri Galbraith supposedly works out of a Post Office Box on Jasper and 112st, but ALL of her paychecks come from Alberta WCB.
 If you are seriously injured worker who is NOT a Government worker/Cop/Firemen you will find that you CANNOT expect to get proper, timely and relevant treatments when you become permanently disabled from work related injuries in Alberta. The WCB Alberta rolls out their bogus line-up of Hacks and Quacks doctors to malign your reputation and this results in the destruction of thousands of workers lives as a direct result. Her conclusions could only come from a complete QUACK doctor, no legitimate doctor would write such total TRIPE.
 Like I have written many times, the WCB Alberta is really Legalized Money laundering for corporations because they get to pretend that they are paying into an accident fund. The truth is that the WCB of Alberta is giant Legal STONEWALL machine designed to mentally stress the Seriously Injured Claimants into committing suicide in desperation to escape from Hellberta. But hey if you are a Cop or a Fireman or government worker the entire process runs totally SMOOTH. These government workers pampering each other makes me want to puke, while regular working joes starve. The corruption runs deep in Hellberta, really deep.
 Fucking Workers over "IS" the Hellberta WAY!
You don't believe me? Need proof? See: Thomas Lukaszuk the greatest champion of TFW's Hellberta has ever known. My uncle Vernon who served in WWII is rolling in his grave, he would have never gone to Europe if he knew Polish shills would pull this crap on Canadians.
Thanks Gary Mar for bringing Chinese Work Camps to Hellberta. (Sic).

WCB Crony Surgeons with WCB Hacks and Quacks routinely LIE about patient complaints and diagnosis

Here is a link to my Back Surgeons routine report from June 13 of 2006 submitted to the Workers Compensation Board of Alberta by Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Hongxing Jiang. If you examine the document you can see that the Surgeon writes F/U (shorthand for Follow-Up) in 1 Year! He was so concerned with my condition that it was not possible for me to see another Spinal doctor for One full year? According to documents filed by another WCB Hacks and Quacks family physician that the WCB Ab designates as a "Consultant" doctor. When doctor Lorri Galbraith wrote her bogus WCB Medical Consultant report, the report is really just a pile of pure fucking Bullshit. But hey that is "WHY" the Alberta College of Physicians enjoys licensing Hacks and Quacks for doctors in Hellberta. They do this is direct collusion with the Workers Compensation Board of Alberta in order to deliver a sufficient number of Quack doctors into Alberta so they can continue to use the WCB of Alberta #1 Tool to kill legitimately entitled claimants any and ALL access to benefits, scans, treatments and even a BED for thousands of Seriously Injured Workers. Fucking over the disabled is the WCB of Alberta Hellberta WAY!

Drop seen in Injuries to Alberta Workers

Well here we have a link to a story coming out of the WorkersCompensation.com website and the guy who writes their blogs. http://www.workerscompensation.com/compnewsnetwork/workers-comp-blogwire/19683-drop-seen-in-injuries-to-alberta-workers.html This article is offensive to me as a Seriously Injured Worker because the writer fails to recognize the extreme stress this puts on the families of the 188 Canadian workers who DIED last year on the job in Alberta. Alberta continues to lead the country in the number of dead workers who were killed on the job working in Hellberta.
 The real truth lies in Northern Alberta http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/canadians-expose-foreign-worker-mess-in-oilsands-1.2750730 The reality is that the WCB of Alberta fluked the number of deaths in 2013 is my opinion. The Workers Comp Blogwire is trying to print propaganda to prop up one of their member WCB Offices. The reality for workers in Hellberta is quite different from the rosy picture than www.WorkersCompensation.com is painting.

 Those Canadian men and women have families that will never see mom or dad walk through the back door of their house ever again. The breadwinner and maybe the only parent of the house are gone forever. This is nothing more than the American Association of State Compensation Funds http://www.aascif.org/ producing propaganda for one of their member Funds. Click on their page and you will be able to link direct to WCB of Alberta with their interactive map. Killing 200 or more workers per year is nothing to brag about for 2 Million workers is my opinion. WCB Alberta don't care, you CAN'T make them care, they are too busy partying on their Bonus cheques to care. More shit brought to you by the same folks who brought you Globalization. Canada is morphing into Mexico North where the Global Corporations can kill as many Canadians as they see necessary in order to pump Tar Glop down a pipe on the CHEAP. It is the Hellberta WAY.

PC leadership candidate Ric McIver pledges to listen to Albertans, tell Alberta’s story

The Workers Compensation Board holds absolute power over ANY decision at ANY level of the Alberta Health Services (AHS). Need proof? Who is the acting executive of the AHS? Oh, looky here we have the ex-CEO of WCB Alberta from back in the mid-nineties. One of King Ralph's old right hand Cronies Dr. John Cowell http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/8641.asp.
Cowell was the CEO of WCB Ab when they slashed their budget in HALF with King Ralph's help; this led to the Hunger Strike protest outside of the front door of the WCB Edmonton offices by Ralph Teed and Frank Pagnotta back in 1999 when they went on a hunger strike outside the WCB offices for weeks.
 That was the beginning of WCB protests including Distressed workers suicides that persist to this day because of the extreme abusive nature of the policy framework laid down by these old cronies like Cowell. Cowell and Klines solution was fundamentally simple, they simply Stopped Treated Patients! Costs plummetted in Half! Wow, who knew? (Sic)
Now Cowell is the singular head of a Health Care system for 4 million people, God his brain must be swelling.
Guys like this doctor ARE the reason ALL of my tests from the Calgary Spine Clinic were cancelled!
This is one of the main architects that APPROVES of WCB Hacks and Quacks crony quack doctors like Dr. Leslie DeLima from the WCB of Alberta to TROLL the halls of Alberta Hospitals. WCB Hack Troll doctors are Standard Operating Procedure in the Royal Alexandra Hospital, these Hacks and Quacks are allowed 100% total freedom to enter patients rooms and physically assault them while they are drugged up on morphine, denying them access to proper, timely and relevant medical treatments and scans. The WCB Ab Hacks are NOT required to submit records of their activities while on Hospital property. I know because I requested the records of Dr. Leslie DeLima relative to my stay in the Royal Alex Hospital. RAH administration says records do not exist. Nice huh.(Sic)
Is this the KIND of Medical Services we as Albertans want moving forward in the fastest growing economy in Canada? Is this even remotely considered to be "Progressive" management of our Health Services? NO, it is not. McIver you are promoting a total FAIL in your Health Care Services policy. But hey, you are part of the old gang of Cronies, right?
This is why I always say that Hellberta is stuck in 1959. Good Ol' Hellberta where Backwards is accepted as being "normal". Welcome to Hellberta folks.


I would say to candidate McIver, Mr. McIver: It is never O.K. to enter a Trauma patients room while an injured worker is in the care of a hospital like the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton, so that the WCB Hacks can interfer with a seriously injured patients CARE!
 These abuses will NEVER be acceptable. For the RAH administration to simply ignore WCB Ab  Hacks and Quacks doctors who are allowed to freely take treatment liberties that cause serious harm to patients is just so damned corrupt. What kind of freak doctors deliberately cause harm with the full knowledge that these Hack actions will result in long term denial of Medical Treatments to Seriously Injured Workers who are drugged out on morphine? Is the kind of Health Care that Ric McIver Approves of? 
Christ this is like the goddamned Middle Ages here in Hellberta.

WCB Long Term benefits are for Cops, Firemen and Government Employees ONLY

Here is a link to a story about how Cops injured on the job just KEEP ON collecting WCB Benefits, even after they have recovered. http://www.govexec.com/management/2014/07/ice-pays-employees-workers-comp-even-when-theyre-fit-work/88639/?oref=river (The story link pauses for 6 or 7 seconds on an AD then proceeds to the story).This shows how the WCB caters to Government Employees! If you are a Government Employee you will have NO PROBLEM receiving benefits, because Government Employees (WCB Employees sign the SAME collective agreements that all other AB Gov. Employees sign) help Government Employees!
 This is WHY I write about the Hard working public: Us  vs. Them (SELF-serving Government).
 “ICE workers’ Compensation specialists did not monitor the medical and return-to-work status of claimants, retain documentation associated with cases, return employees to work, or recover salaries for denied claims,” the IG wrote.
 The linked article is about Immigration and Customs agents (Cops) in the United States, but you know for a fact that the same bullshit is going on here in Canada, because Government Workers scratch the backs of Government Workers. Harper poured Billions into Border Security and Police Budgets, for sure the same thing has been going on.
 This has been going on for decades now; I am convinced if the Workers Compensation Board of AB was ever forced to disclose FULL Transparency statistics, it would be revealed who the biggest single organization is that is responsible for the BULK of WCB benefits.
  The Alberta Government freely admits on the news that Alberta Health is the Largest single employer in Alberta, so it would naturally follow that Cops, Firemen and thousands of Government workers make up the Bulk of the Workers Comp costs.
 Based on these facts, the statistics for WCB Alberta Claims would be largely taken up by government employees naturally following the statistics for individual U.S. States where the GOVERNMENT Employees are the "Single Largest" organization responsible for the the MASSIVE MEDICAL costs and lost time benefits paid out by the WCB orgs.

Alberta WCB and Denial of "Due Process" propogating the WCB Culture of Denial

  It has come to my attention recently by other Seriously Injured Workers with legitimate WCB Claims, that these Injured Workers are being denied their Constitutional right to Due Process. These rights are guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Section 7.
  The only verbal interactions I have EVER had with WCB Claims Managers Kim Kroetsch and Colleen Bamford was them DENYING me my right to Due Process when they refuse to answer their telephones. The Workers Compensation Board of Alberta instructs Claimants as their 1st action in resolving disputes that render Seriously Injured Workers HOMELESS; The Claimants are to PHONE their Claims Manager.
  You cannot phone your claims manager because they NEVER pick up the phone. Colleen Bamford even went so far as to record herself telling claimants she was assigned to NOT bother leaving a message, because she NEVER answers her messages! Like WTH! Where is the Due Process in these deliberate felonious denial Tactics?
  I tried phoning Colleen from friends home phones and Cell phones, Pay Phones, from other government offices and guess what? She NEVER did answer, because this is the Mainstay WCB Alberta Corporate Deception Policy to deny claimants their Constitutional Right to Due Process.

  Colleen Bamford did respond after many months of leaving messages, she phoned me at home to yell at me that I as a Seriously Injured Worker was not allowed to EVER phone the WCB Offices in Alberta EVER again! Where is the WCB Due Process in their #1 WCB AB felonious tactic?
 Nice huh? (Sic) These bastards wonder why Seriously Injured Workers are collapsing under the shear weight of carrying 600 do nothing Government Employees around on their broken backs.
  Who does it benefit when the WCB Alberta inflicts even more illness and injury from the mental stress when WCB deliberately aims at inflicting severe mental injury on the injured worker who is only seeking proper, timely and relevant medical attention for their injuries? The Cops, because now they can justify their jobs? The Harper Prison System because now they have severely distressed and untreated injured workers to fill their prison cells?

 What precisely IS the purpose of these Claims Managers who are paid to do nothing?
 This is the mainstay of the WCB of Alberta in their never ending quest to make sure that each and every single WCB Alberta employee shares in the WCB Alberta Bonus system. The proof that the WCB Alberta Bonus System still exists is that the Alberta WCB Corporate Leader and CEO Guy Kerr recieved his giant Bonus cheque for paving over the graves of dead workers! Workers are STILL dying by the hundreds in Alberta and Guy Kerr is BONUSING with giant cheques for Hundreds of Thousands of dollars for killing workers! How is this in any way shape or form compliant with the original Meridith Principle for Workers Compensation?
 Bonuses for killing workers is macabre to say the very least, but it is completely consistent with the Government of Alberta's policy of setting up their Alberta Health "Super Board"; which is a Death Panel designed to kill injured workers is my opinion.
  The Alberta Government had NO other choice in order to DOWNLOAD the costs of providing AHS Health Care for Harper and Lukaszuk's ARMY of Temporary Foreign Workers onto the backs of ALL Canadians working in Alberta.
 Workvantage.ca advertises on their Web Page that they can help TFW's to access "SETTLEMENT ASSISTANCE!"
WTH is going on? Harper secret TFW Housing program? TFW's weld faster than you can? Bizarre! Welcome to the age of the Pan Canadian Filipino built Pipeline.

 This IS what is so different about the Oil Boom of the late seventies and what is going on in Alberta today, is that back in those days the Conservative Government of Canada and the Alberta Provincial Government were not BACKSTABBING Canadians by shipping in hundreds of thousands of TFW's to replace the dead and seriously injured workers in this (AB) the fastest growing province in Canada. The Alberta Conservatives under the direct supervision of Thomas Lukaszuk has NO Choice but to provide FREE Healthcare to TFW's, because the Employer did not want to be saddled with these costs. TFW's now have MORE rights than Canadians!
  The TFW's are now popping out BABIES at exponential rates because the Temporary Foreign Workers KNOW that when their children are born here, they are CANADIAN.

  FREE Alberta Health Care is all about providing CHEAP labor, really cheap labor for our Oil Boom and downloading the Health Care costs spread across the backs of all working people in Alberta, and the easiest way of DOWNLOADING a Massive Health Care TAX Burden onto taxpayers for the massive benefit to the AB Progressive Conservatives's and the Harper Conservative Government.
 Thus the ONLY way to guarantee that the TFW's would receive top level care in front of Injured Canadians was to create the SuperBoard to operate as a high level Death Panel is my opinion. Kill off the Seriously Injured workers by denial of services, and make way for the new army of cheap Chinese workers that are being flown DIRECT into Ft. McMurray to expand operations like CNRL (Chinese Natural Resources).
 I am starting to receive regular calls from other injured workers again, just like back when Patrick Clayton took the hostages at the WCB AB offices in Edmonton, this means that absolutely NOTHING has changed at the WCB of Alberta. This is SNAFU for the WCB of Alberta to continue to deny Due Process to long term seriously injured workers.
   
Denial of Access to Due Process is the WCB of Alberta MAIN unwritten anchor policy that all of their Claims Managers and Supervisors combine with other abusive techniques to unlawfully kill Claimants legal right to appeal decisions!
 This is the WCB #1 Most Successful illegal "Legal Stunt" and it amounts to a legal abuse of Due Process that all of their abusive techniques revolve around.
  When a government harms a person without following the exact course of the law, this constitutes a due-process violation, which offends against the rule of law.
                   Exerpts from Wareham v. Ontario CanLii Library
Fundamental justice (in section 7 of the Canadian Charter) is therefore interpreted to include more legal protections than due process . It is beyond doubt that the principles of fundamental justice include the right to a fair process. In Suresh v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration), 2002 SCC 1 (CanLII), [2002] 1 S.C.R. 3, [2002] S.C.J. No. 3, the court said, at para. 113

The principles of fundamental justice of which s. 7 speaks, though not identical to the duty of fairness elucidated in Baker, are the same principles underlying that duty. As Professor Hogg has said, "The common law rules [of procedural fairness] are in fact basic tenets of the legal system, and they have evolved in response to the same values and objectives as s. 7." In Singh v. Minister of Employment and Immigration, Wilson J. recognized that the principles of fundamental justice demand, at a minimum, compliance with the common law requirements of procedural fairness. Section 7 protects substantive as well as procedural rights: Re B.C. Motor Vehicle Act. Insofar as procedural rights are concerned, the common law doctrine summarized in Baker, properly recognizes the ingredients of fundamental justice.

As a Seriously Injured Worker with a Permanent Disability, the WCB Alberta denies you access to due process (WCB Administraters advertises the BIG LAW LIE about appeal mechanisms) with a succession of bogus letters designed to deflect you away from your right to administrative review of decisions, policy and your overall case.
  The very FIRST denial of Due Process with the WCB of Alberta happens when your Claims Manager (CM) is paid to NOT answer her phone!
  These Claims managers think these tactics are funny, abusing a seriously injured worker is NEVER funny. I guess this is why they form their own little "Bitches Club", to fuel their Schadenfreude glee.
  If you follow WCB AB Policy, you HAVE to complete this step or you CANNOT proceed to the next step in their phony Appeal Process.
 When the WCB Ab Office of the Appeals Adviser told me "Well maybe you are under investigation for fraud", he denied me access to Due Process. I retorted, "I broke my back for gods sake". The guy who is supposed to be your legal Adviser you has just told a claimant who has never contacted them before in his life that he is likely under investigation? Some CRAPPY Adviser huh? (Sic)
 When the WCB Ab denied me access to their buildings, they denied me access to Due Process.
 When the WCB Ab decided that they would deny me access to a proper disability assessment that is free from Legal Intimidation by WCB Millard Health employees, free from their legal coercion, threats and harassment, they denied me access to Due process.
 I was completely unaware that being threatened with termination of benefits resulting in a seriously injured worker becoming homeless IS what the WCB of Alberta considers as my right to Due Process, who knew? (Sic) Sick bastards.
 When the WCB AB denies me access to proper timely and relevant medical care ordered by my physicians they have denied me access to Due process.
 When Colleen Bamford denied my lawyer access to my file, she denied me my Rights guaranteed by our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms Section:7 The Right to due process.
This Charter provision provides both substantive and procedural rights.[1] It has broad application beyond merely protecting due process in administrative proceedings.
Under the heading of "Legal Rights", the section states:
7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.   Source: Wikipedia
 When Colleen Bamford refused to give my LAWYER my complete file years ago to my Legal Aid Lawyer she denied me my Fundamental Rights (Due Process) guaranteed under the Charter that is written in the Law texts of Canada.
Denial of Due Process is now and has been for many years now Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) at the Workers Compensation Board for non government claimants. For SURE this WCB Alberta Claims Manager Tactic is the # 1 Claims Appeal KILLER!
Do you ever notice that you NEVER hear about Cops or Firemen having these problems with WCB?
That is because the WCB knows that if they screw the Cops over, they Cops will show up an just may use their service resolver for a little frontier justice, thats why.
More to come; The number #1 Symptom of Chronic Pain is Chronic Fatigue. I need to rest.
Thks for your patience.

This is WHERE Harper and the Alberta Model for Canada's NEW Industrial Heartland is taking us

This is a link to a story about the horrors of Abusive Employers in Texas and their denial of Workers Compensation to Injured Workers in Texas. This news story is also about stripping away what their Republican Lawmakers in Texas like to call excessive "Regulation" by the State Government. The reason that this is such an important story is because Alberta is the closest Province in Canada to the Texas Model.
Alberta Health has been pursuing an Agenda that hires the same American Hospital Corporations that Texas uses to run our Hospitals in Alberta. The Alberta government relies on an American Spinal Treatment CHAIN http://www.healthpointe.com/ medical boutique to ensure that the majority of Seriously Injured Workers that really need surgeries are sent to their Hacko Quacko CBI rehab, or simply completely denied care altogether. Healthpointe in the U.S. was convicted of a countrywide fraud by the U.S. Department of Justice, and paid their fine of $1 Billion USD in cash immediately. All we ever hear about on the news is how the Harper government is "helping Canadians" by stripping away "Excessive Regulations" that encumber business his government says. The end product of these kinds of "Backward policies" to workers is that the Seriously Injured Workers end up on the AISH programs across Canada if they are lucky enough to be accepted, and then their entire Medical Bills become a burden on the Taxpayers. Those who are not so lucky end up homeless and committing suicide to escape the horror their lives have become. Canada used to be a much more advance culture than America, but the Harper government agenda is taking us straight down the very same path as Texas and is regressing this province backwards in time to the 1950's.
