Here is another story that was printed yesterday. It speaks to the issue of the story airing tonight on Alberta Primetime.
I know that the SST are aware of every blog entry that I post - this was clearly evident in the 1848 pages of information I received when I did a Access to Information request on myself - so head's up Commissioner and Vice Chairs and all the Directors there who appear to enjoy reading and commenting about my blog and my spelling - I hope someone from the tribunal has taken the time to reach out to this man and offer whatever help you can to get this appeal matter sorted for him.
I know that everyone is working very hard to get the appeals scheduled - and that is great news - but at what prior cost? There should not have been financial ruin and mental devastation for people who have been stuck in this system and denied benefits by this government. And seriously - what "experts" are now reviewing the cases? Do they have more expertise that the people who reviewed the files two times prior and denied them??? Shouldn't experts have reviewed these files to begin with? Are you saying your staff was inept and you had to bring in "experts"? What a joke.
I think that it will all become very clear as these stories continue to appear and people continue to come forward.
If you have had an appeal scheduled by the tribunal please find someone to help you.
