While appreciating the time and thought that went into LAO Chair Charles Harnick’s letter to ONIWG of July 5th, the ONIWG President responds to correct some inaccuracies. In particular, she notes that it underestimates the services provided by worker clinics to injured workers in both their local community and across the province who need legal assistance with workers’ compensation. It also fails to recognize the vital role these clinics play in providing support and education for vulnerable clients. The Board is again urged to restore funding to all specialty clinics.
