Nikolai Khabibulin Back Surgery

I see on the news that Nikolai Khabibulin is going to have surgery for a herniated disk in his back. There are very few details. I have watched this story with great interest. The Gory party has made Alberta the worst province in Canada to be injured. It is very difficult to write relevant material when my pain level is constantly DEFCON 5. This government and the WCB have bastardized our health care system. Tory meddling in the health system is just one more of their hack job solutions. Top conservative geniuses can not resist playing GOD!
Nikolai Khabibulin is a lucky man, and I am envious that he is wealthy enough to enter the United States of America for Medical Treatment of his severe back pain. I have been living with severe chronic lower back pain for almost four years now. I have watched and wondered with great envy as Pro Athletes and Military Personnel get leading edge diagnostic, surgical and rehabilitative care for their serious injuries. I have always dreamed of what that experience must be like.
But for seriously injured workers in Alberta, that is all it will ever be. Just a dream, more like a mirage. I knew right from the start that they would not have the technical expertise and equipment here in Edmonton.
I was referred to the MAYO CLINIC in Rochester Minnesota by my doctor almost 2 years ago. That was when Colleen Bamford told my doctors office my file was closed. I was born in the RAH in 1960, I am sad to say that this is not the province I grew up in.
In Alberta if you crush one of your vertebrae, Alberta WCB refuses to even buy you a bed.
This is your legacy Hector Goudreau.
Protests and clashes with injured workers is a black mark on this city, needlessly propagated by the Alberta WCB. People in America and Europe see these events unfold. All of these headlines have been directly caused by the evil practices imposed on disabled seriously injured workers. The bill from the City of Edmonton should be PUNITIVE in nature toward the WCB. I mean it is the conservatives after all that are continually going on about crime prevention programs.
Alberta WCB initiated torture in a TAR PIT Moonscape of broken dreams called Alberta. What are the PC's going to promote at the Olympics in Whistler? The Dumbest place in Canada? Torture of seriously injured Tar Pit Workers?
I have lived and worked erecting steel buildings on the coast of British Columbia, including Whistler. Honestly what are you going to promote in Vancouver? Gunk Flares? How to qualify for work on one of our Surface of the Moon simulation projects?
For me to dream of getting proper medical attention for my workplace injuries here in Alberta is just 100% pure Fantasy. The government won't even pay for health care for the citizens it has, and you want to attract more? The Alberta train in Whistler is going to be a government party wagon for conservatives paid for by the taxpayer, that's all it will be.
Getting seriously injured at work in Alberta is like being a Canadian Goose landing on a Stink Crude tailing pond. As you are sinking to the bottom of the Toxic tailing pond you look around and realize there are thousands of your dead comrades on the bottom. The Alberta intertwined Parable. It is the Alberta Dichotomy, work till you drop. It you get seriously wounded in action, oh well, screw you. Our corrupt government of Alberta (Senor' Ed)refuses to make the WCB transparent and accountable, I and others like me will be forced to take action.
Gory Corp is not transparent or accountable, so WCB is a perfect fit for them. This government and the WCB are unwilling to extend the very minimum of basic Human Decency towards injured workers.
Alberta refuses to recognize human rights for its citizens. The Alberta government just doesn't get it. They want to be respected in Ottawa, when they extend no respect towards there very own citizens. They want transfer payments back, awwhh, boo hoo. Why so you can give them to multinational corporations? This government deserves no formal recognition at the national or international level when they refuse to bring their human rights up to modern standards(except in China). That is why is always say it really is 1953 in Alberta. The Alberta government and Alberta WCB are so on a total disconnect with the population that it has become pathetic. Their din of the Gory Party trough slurping has become so deafening they can't hear the cries of the people.

The Alberta WCB knows exactly who I am, and what they owe me, now and in the future. You cannot tell me that their computer system does not keep close tabs on their conquests over the most seriously injured workers. It is a simple program that compares real injury costs against the big Giant Alberta WCB Cheap Out Program of suffering.
No one believes this governments lies anymore.
The Alberta Government is going to try and sell this crap in Whistler, B.C.? Jesus, how dumb do you think people attending the Winter Olympics in Whistler are? Alberta slogan, "Where we Roll back Human Rights".(To the 50's).
Alberta needs more suckers to live the dream. It is the Alberta Way. Exactly what happened at Dunvegan during the Gold Rush, this is nothing new for Alberta. Still trying to live the dream after the Gold Rush is over. History repeats.
