After 15 years of running my own company, I just closed my business today due to a workplace injury that left me with a dislocated arm. Even after surgery, it will never be the same again – so I had to close my doors. Thank you, WSIB for playing games with me. We are doing some of the most dangerous jobs in the country – ┬áthe least they can do is pay out when we get injured. But something good came out of this, at least. They are not going to see another dime out of my account as long as I live in this country. So I am happy for that. Amen.
