Ontario Hansard - 26-September2018

Hon. Laurie Scott: Mr. Speaker, through you to the member: Businesses did participate in bringing down the unfunded liability. They had increased premiums. The best thing that we could do was to get the unfunded liability gone, and we did. That helps injured workers, because if the unthinkable happens and an injury occurs at work, they need to be secure that there are services there for them. So this helps the future security of injured workers, but it also acknowledges that businesses have contributed greatly, and they have an average 30% rate reduction.

I don’t really know why the member opposite is upset. This is a good-news story for the province of Ontario. It’s not only open for business, but it’s protecting injured workers.
