ONTARIO MINISTER OF HEALTH CHRISTINE ELLIOTT JOINS FIGHT BACK WITH LIBBY ZNAIMER

This morning Ontario Minister of Health Christine Elliott announced increased funding for a new treatment for essential tremors.

Approximately four per cent of Ontarians over 65 years-old are living with this condition. It causes uncontrollable shaking that can make it difficult to complete simple tasks like getting dressed.

The Deputy Premier joined Libby Znaimer in studio to discuss this and more.


NEW RIGHTS INTRODUCED FOR AIR TRAVELLERS 
The first phase of the new air passengers’ bill of rights takes effect today. It will require airlines to compensate passengers up 2400 dollars if they are bumped off the flight and 2100 if their luggage is lost.

It also mandates that airlines provide clear communication to passengers about their rights and provide timely updates for delays or cancellations.

Libby Znaimer is joined by John Mckenna, CEO and President of Air Transport Association of Canada and Ariël Roy, lawyer at Flight Claim


EMPLOYEE BENEFITS FRAUD
At Baycrest, 150 employees were let go because they allegedly participated in a benefits fraud scheme of upwards of $5 million. There was a similar problem at the TTC a few years ago.

Libby Znaimer is joined by Shannon DeLenardo, Director of Anti-Fraud and Electronic Claims at Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association and Ryan Conlin Partner at Stringer LLP.
