WCB Kickbacks and Payoffs to American Hospital Administrations running Alberta Hospitals

It occurred to me that obviously the Royal Alexandra Hospital is linked in some sort of kickback scheme for funding from the Workers Compensation Board of Alberta. How do I know this? Because there is no way that a doctor acting alone would be able to pull off "DENYING" access to seriously injured patients. He would have to be acting in full co-operation with the Hospital Administration staff. Why? Because in this way the Hospital can "earn" WCB bonuses for deny Seriously Injured Trauma patients proper care and thus it is my conclusion that the Royal Alexandra Hospital in collusion with the Alberta Health Services are aiding and abetting the WCB Alberta in keeping Injured Worker Claims artificially LOW.
I believe this to be a form of Medical Fraud, and a severe abuse of Administrative Procedure resulting in the Malicious maltreatment of patients while in the care of the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
It is my opinion that this is grounds for all Injured Workers who have been abused at the Royal Alexandra Hospital to file a Class Action Suit against the Alberta Health Services, and the Royal Alex Hospital.

The Royal Alexandra Hospital has severely abused its "DUTY OF CARE" in the treatment of Seriously Injured Workers while in their care, and has openly pursued a program of Discriminatory Medical Treatment against Injured Workers based solely on their Disability.
Section Fifteen of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
Under the heading of "Equality Rights" this section states:
15. (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. (2) Subsection (1) does not preclude any law, program or activity that has as its object the amelioration of conditions of disadvantaged individuals or groups including those that are disadvantaged because of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.
I suppose since the Alberta Health Services in directly involved in this discriminatory policy, then the Alberta Government would have to be sued as well. It only makes sense.

And you know what? If they can get away with this for years @ RAH in downtown Edmonton, they can get away with it in any Hospital in Alberta. Since Alberta Progressive Conservative Association members are not actually capable of coming up with any new ideas in the last 40 years, this means that they have NO choice but to copy the American Privatization Model.
Need proof? Ask Doctor Raj Sherman, he is living proof of the implementation of the Ralph Klein era "Third Way".
And so it follows that this is a program that was born with the approval of Alberta Health Services and their SUPER Board, and is now a full integrated program running in the most strategically located hospitals in Alberta. It is logical that the Royal Alexandra is the WCB Approved Hospital for all of Northern Alberta including persons injured while working on the Oil Sands Projects.
My only hope is that some day someone pulls an access to information about "incentives", "bonuses" and Performance gratuities to Hospitals in Alberta that are administered by American Hospital Management Health groups.
They may even have funky names like "Grants", "Education bonuses", who knows.

Then and only then will the true nature of what goes on when you land in the Emergency Room at the Royal Alexandra Hospital be revealed.
The old saying of "follow the money", still holds true today.
I cannot afford to make these queries, the Gov. counts on this.
Find the money, and you find the crooks. It is that simple.
