Effective Nov. 1, 2018, Ms. Dale Wispinski was appointed by the NDP
Government as the new Chief of the Alberta Appeals Commission. I have
met Ms. Wispinski during a Judicial Review and if she is to do her job,
she needs to receive training in how the system is supposed to operate
in the adjudication of claims. According to her belief, she believes
that in an inquiry system that adjudication is based on the civil law
standard where the worker has the burden of proof. It was her who
convinced Justice Yamauchi into disagreeing with Justice Millar who had
in an earlier Judicial Review determined correctly that the burden of
proof was on the Board. Quite frankly, the whole Appeals Commission
should be fired and appoint some one who knows what they are doing.
