Dear Mr. McCloy.
My name is Wayne Coady , I am involved with a national injured workers coalition, we are involved in investigatng the bad faith practices of member of the Association of Workers' Compensation Boards of Canada, such as your Board in BC and other members of your association’s family.
I have been involved with injured workers since 1999 and became involved because of the way I was treated by the Newfoundland Workers Compensation Board. So after years of jumping through their hoops , I was faced with much stress and eventually had a mental melt down, so I said Wayne , if it is happening to you, then it is happening to other.
This letter has everything to do with what is taking place at Cascade Aerospace which Worksafe B.C. is involved in ..... www.waynecoady.blogspot.com
Sure enough I learned that injured workers right here in Nova Scotia were going through the same kind of abusive treatment at the hands of these unionized caseworkers , then we learned that the abuse of power was also being displayed by those service companies who were hired by the WCB to service injured clients.
For example therapists hired by the board were using intimidation and that intimidation was placing much stress on the injured patient and in more case we learned that these therapists were threatening or as they call it these days bullying injured workers, no matter how great the pain was, if they did not do as the therapist demanded, they would be written as non-compliant …thus terminated by the WCB Board. This was and is still a very common practice.
So my small band of merry injured workers struck out to find more injured workers who had documentation and were willing to tape record all conversation between caseworkers, doctors and any other hired thug employed by these vile bad faith boards. Bingo, we learned that the abuse in one Board was the same practiced in all others. So, now we are educating and helping injured who have a story to sit in front of a camera, tell the truth and mention the names of each and every single person / caseworker who has abused them along their way, including therapists ,doctors and other health care providers.
Injured workers are now just starting to come together and right across this country, we are taking the bag off our head and putting aside the shame we were made feel. Injured workers will tell how the Compensation Board destroyed their life, forced them into bankruptcy, split apart their families and yes even drove the now widows, husband to suicide or visa versa. How the children and family were degraded by having to go to welfare, because some caseworker decided to play GOD with their life.
Christ you guys truly are cruel bastards.
I have been following this latest case about Cascade Aerospace which Worksafe B.C. is involved in and thanks to being able to post as an injured workers on Kathy Tomlinson CBC site, I have received emails and phone calls from right across Canada and we have been overwellemed with letters from injured workers from British Columbia.
I do not know who this Mark Evans is , but for some reason he seems to have lots to do with injured workers and has placed according to these letter injured workers under much stress. As you know and are well aware , that stress leads to mental health issues and as we are also learning has place a high number of injured workers in the position of either committing suicide or having made a failed attempt leaving them with another cross to bare.
There seems to be a common practice that flows out of the management practices of all of these vile Workers Compensation Boards and that is get rid of the injured workers at any cost . Injured Workers across Canada have had enough of this abuse , that is being administer at the hands of the unionized staff at these vile government agencies .
I am going to make a suggestion that you can pass onb to every person employed at Worksafe B.C. ,I suggest that you contact Dr. Hugues Hervé, he is a registered psychologist in British Columbia, then have him put the WCB Staff through a Psychological Assessment, including Mark Evans. Mark a real secretive man, if you know what I mean?
Trust me Mr. McCloy, injured workers are not going to stand for any more of this abuse, injured workers are more than willing to tell their story about how they were mentally abuse and some injured workers are of the opinion the the Workers Compensation is capable of out right murder and you know, I beginning to believe they might be right!
The British Columbia Provincial Government and all other Provincial Governments including the Federal Government will have little choice but to put in place a full blown public inquiry, this abuse must stop, injured workers are being murdered, by a piece of legislation, which will be proven that in the hands of the wrong people or organizations such as the WCB is akin to a man gone mad with a AK 47.
This letter was to inform the Association of Workers Compensation Boards in Canada, that we are pissed off and sick and tired of the abuse we are forced to take at the WCB hands, no more. I cannot continue to write, because just having to write this make me want to toss my guts. I do have my own site, and so does the Injured and abused Workers Coalition, but for now that site is closed to the public, but in due time it will be opened.
