Toronto Protesters Find KPMG to Be as Charming as an Eel

This has the potential for a great singalong:

Injured workers, their families and friends will be outside KPMG headquarters on Friday, December 23rd, insisting that the consulting firm is the 'Grinch Who Stole Christmas' for recommending that the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board drastically cut compensation to workers who have been injured on the job. KPMG, the management consulting company that was recently hired by Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to recommend cuts to city services, was commissioned by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) as part of an annual Value for Money Audit; this year on Adjudication and Claims Administration. Instead of a routine audit the report recommends sweeping changes to workers compensation in Ontario that will especially target older workers who the Liberals traditionally rely on for support. Betty Campbell, a 54 year old single mother from Toronto, is one of the hundreds of thousands of Ontarians who are being affected. She will be giving KPMG executives the Grinch Who Stole Christmas Award. "KPMG is the Grinch who wants to steal from injured workers this Christmas but I'm still hopeful for a quick and ultimately happy ending to this ordeal," she says.
