TORONTO, June 17 /CNW/ - Look for the wreckage of an automobile,
demolished in a horrendous accident, sitting on Nathan Phillips Square.
That's the backdrop to an event tomorrow that will bring together car
crash survivors and stakeholder groups opposed to changes that would slash
auto insurance benefits. Ontario Finance Minister Dwight Duncan is now
reviewing recommendations that would, if implemented, cut basic accident
benefits from $100,000 to $25,000.
Hundreds of brain injury survivors will be gathering in recognition of
Brain Injury Awareness Month. At a news conference, automobile accident
victims will discuss their personal stories of injury and rehabilitation, and
will talk about the importance of protecting people with adequate insurance
Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath will also be speaking at the news
conference, as will representatives from the Ontario Home Care Association,
the Alliance of Community Medical & Rehabilitation Providers, the Ontario
Brain Injury Association and others.
