Prime Minister Harper Allows Powerful to Abuse Disabled


Nortel disabled employees asked Prime Minister Stephen Harper to correct an abuse by their employer who provided bogus disability insurance and wrongfully removed $75 million from their health and welfare trust. PM Harper stonewalled them for 18 months, turning down two disability bills using excuses supplied to his government by the insolvency lawyers, bankers and junk bond owners who took the disability insurance of the Nortel disabled. Bankers and bond owners insure their losses with credit default swaps and yet this government assists them to make a higher return by taking the insurance money of the disabled. This money does not rightfully belong to the creditors. Since disabled persons are less than 0.9% of the workforce and the cost of disability insurance is less than 1.5% of payroll, the impact of the bills on cost of credit is miniscule. The taxpayer now foots the bill for the PM’s decision and the disabled live in poverty. The Canadian disabled thank the Liberal Party Leader Michael Ignatieff for tabling the disability bills and NDP Leader Jack Layton, Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe and Green Leader Elizabeth May for supporting the bills.

    Harper gave his political staffers a 50% raise and beefed up pensions. These are people who won’t even serve a handful of years doing his bidding, and he can’t support the hardworking people of Canada.

    POLITICIANS: Corporate administrators masquerading as public servants. Elected by the ignorant, answerable to the global banking cartel. Welcome to Canada.

    @FIXWCBCANADA You are absolutely right! When are we all going to be treated equally in this Country. When you are sick and unable to work either by illness or accident, the only thing you should have to worry about is how to get better and go back working. What they impose on sick or injured canadian is a fight with the whole System just to be able to survive, forget getting better…. They want us to disappear…. I will soon ! But not without a fight!

    @VIOLINMAKESMECRY ……when are they going to change the workers compensation fraud which all severely injured workers are forced to deal with;
  9. FIXWCBCANADA says:
    I was injured on the job and was denied medical care, 1 spinal injury took almost 2 years to diagnose, the 2nd spinal injury took 5 years to diagnose, I have received no medical care whatsoever, it took 30 moths to get the first mri, and then the surgery that was requested on my behalf was denied;
    HARPER SUCKS; BOOT THIS PRICK OUT;
  10. toprotectandconserve says:
    Vote strong with the Conservatives
  11. VIOLINMAKESMECRY says:
    Harper is now more than a accomplice of a fraud ; he is the one who cut the life support to 350 sick and dying Canadians by killing billS-216 and stalling Bill C-624. Same disability plan, same administrator(Sun Life) than the Federal employees. Why are we treated differently. Do not we live in the same Country. SHAME ON YOU HARPER!
