Is this what the "new era" will mean for BC?

The Injured Worker Participatory Research Report (in PDF) is a recent study which explores the experiences of more than 300 injured workers living in southern Ontario. The workers — men and woman, in a variety of occupations — were canvassed through mail-in surveys and in-depth interviews. Based on their reports, this study makes recommendations for changes to the workers' compensation system in Ontario. The British Columbia's Workers' Compensation Advocacy Group feels it is directly relevant to Allan Hunt's service delivery review. "... also supports our position that copying Ontario's cutbacks, appeal system, and other features has led to the bad service delivery, higher accident rates, and generally more suffering for injured workers there."
