Workplace Fatality Family Bill of Rights Committee (Ontario)

We are not the only ones pushing for a Family Bill of Rights. It is awesome to see how this bill made by a few families has been spreading around the world.

Workplace Fatality Family Bill of Rights Committee
Postcard Campaign to:
Dalton McGuinty Premier of Ontario
Rick Bartolucci Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services
Peter Fonseco Minister of Labour

In the tragedy of a work place fatality, the bereaved family has not been included in legislation. They often do not get information about the investigation in a timely fashion to help deal with emotional and practical issues. Please have your government adopt a Workplace Fatalities Family Bill of Rights with immediate emphasis in particular, “ The Minister of Labour shall review its practices and rationale concerning the inspector’s role in communicating with family members when investigating fatalities and critical injuries”.
Translate the words of Workers Memorial Day;
“Remember the Dead, Fight for the Living”
Into a more progressive and compassionate inquest process.
We ask for your support and request you email the above and your local MPP’s and all family members, friends and associates to do the same.

Thank you sincerely.
