The most striking thing that continually slaps in the face and just adds to the Trauma I have suffered at the hands of the PC Govt., is that this Culture of Entitlement is pervasive and infects a large number of Alberta govt. offices. As an Albertan you simply will NEVER be able to erase the look of total GLEE on these employees faces as they see how devastating their denial of services is on you as a disabled person seeking help.
This includes Cops, and especially AB Justice employees they seem to be as gleeful as the WCB fraudsters when they know they have inflicted serious damage to your psyche, they are actually giddy with pleasure that is surging through their veins. The woman at the desk for Legal Aid actually laughed in my face when she realized the impact on me when she told me that I no longer qualified for Legal Aid because AISH had been increased.
The first lawyer that Legal Aid appointed to me was Francis McMenney, my first meeting with him he actually said to me, "Well you don't look that seriously injured to me". So I showed him my scar which was still pretty ugly.
I don't understand where this Culture of Entitlement was spawned from. The woman who I spoke to from Capital Region Housing Corporation when I went down to their office to show them that I had WON a decision by the Privacy Commissioner was the absolute QUEEN of over reaching govt. abuse. You could hear the glee in her voice as she laughed telling me there was NO APPEAL mechanism at Capital Region Housing, and even if there were SHE personally would make sure that I did not qualify by simply "Changing the REASON they turned down my application".
I was floored and completely deflated, because this signaled that I would NEVER be able to win any kind of benefits for a continuation of my housing subsidy. I would never qualify because this woman had taken it upon herself to personally use her govt. position to ATTACK me. I was busy fighting 6 arms of the government ALL at ONE TIME!
It was simply too overwhelming, and that is when I started to withdraw, withdraw permanently from trying to get any kind of benefit from the government because I simply was not equipped mentally to fight these corrupt govt. departments. So I just gave up trying, it was seriously affecting my health, it was literally KILLING me with all of the stress that these self-entitled government princesses were inflicting on me.
On December 19th, 2016 I had asked my doctor who had been treating me if he could please refer me to an Orthopedic Spinal Specialist in Calgary. He told me he would. I took him at his word, I believed him especially since I had just had a mental breakdown in his office recounting the horrors that the WCB had inflicted on me over the last 10 years.
When I visited him on Thursday I was horrified to learn that not only did he NOT forward my referral request to see Dr. Cory Cundal in Calgary, but he told me he was NEVER going to forward the referral. I was stunned, complete panic overcame me as I realized that the WCB had warped the mind of my doctor with their horrific lies. I went to see him about the back pain I am going out of my mind with, and he sent me for blood tests for DIABETES. What in the hell does diabetes and a broken back have in common.
Oh yeah, lets see, NOTHING! I told him on the day that he sends that referral I will satisfy his WCB witch hunt with any kind of blood tests he wants. I now see Doctors as nothing more than really high paid Government Employees, 80% of their income is derived directly from the AB Health Services and in my mind that makes them government employees.
