"When did this country start turning into a communist dictatorship?"
Dean Kadikoff asks a good question after reading about drywaller Sean Keane being bankrupted by the WSIB - who were later found to have been in the wrong
By Steve Payne
Dean Kadikoff posted the following after watching our video about the WSIB hounding drywaller Sean Keane for $340,000. (Eventually, they dropped their claim. He’s now suing them.)
“When did this country start turning into a communist dictatorship where our public employees and departments – be they federal, provincial or municipal – are sanctioned and given such powers as to allow such heavy-handed approaches as is the case here. To have (Sean Keane’s appeals of his $340,000 invoice from WSIB) continually return to the same auditor’s desk, and (for him) not to be given an opportunity to be reviewed by any other avenue within that department is just incomprehensible.
There need to be safeguards for us, the Canadian public, to be given the opportunity, nay the right, for a fair and unbiased review, within a resonable amount of time. This specific case has been going on for nearly 4 years – absolutely unacceptable. I speak not only about WSIB, but any other government department or agency that has the power to pull money out of the working man’s pockets. Most folks just pay up because they can’t afford to fight these issues even if they know they are right. It’s wrong, terribly wrong. Wake up Canada: I fear that it may already be too late.”
