Victims of crime, victims of change : transition and discretion in crime victim assistance legislation in British Columbia by British Columbia( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special Report No. 30 details the experience of a woman who was awarded a pension under the Criminal Injury Compensation program after her husband was killed. The woman, Ms. T., was promised that her pension would continue for the rest of her life and that it would be adjusted semi annually to reflect changes in the cost of living. Several years later, those cost of living adjustments were abruptly discontinued when responsibility for the Crime Victim Assistance Program was transferred from the Workers' Compensation Board to the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. Without prior warning, Ms. T. and about 390 other victims of crime received an unsigned and undated form letter informing them that cost of living adjustments would no longer be made to their pensions. This Ombudsman report describes the investigation process and draws conclusions based on the investigation results.--Includes text from document

Winning fair and square : a report on the British Columbia Lottery Corporations's prize payout process by British Columbia( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ombudsman initiated the investigation into lottery prize payout processes in December 2006 after serious questions were raised by the public and the media about the seemingly high rates of wins among British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) retailers and BCLC retailer employees. Special Report No. 31 examines whether BCLC had adequate procedures in place to ensure that correct prize amounts were paid to the rightful owners of winning tickets. Additionally, the report examines the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch's (GPEB) oversight of BCLC's lottery retail network between the years 2002 and 2006. The Ombudsman made 27 recommendations regarding BCLC lottery validation and payout procedures. These recommendations focus on the collection of information and data, the lottery validation process, compliance and enforcement and addressing past deficiencies.--Publisher's website

The best of care : getting it right for seniors in British Columbia (Part 1) by British Columbia( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This public report is the first of two from the Office of the Ombudsperson on seniors' care in British Columbia. This report focuses specifically on seniors in residential care facilities. The issue being explored in the report is the need for quality of life exploration and analysis for seniors in residential care due to complaints and concerns from seniors in facility situations, as well as concerns from their families. These concerns focus primarily around lack of understanding regarding patients' rights, lack of disclosure and information access regarding the residential system as a whole, and the lack of availability of information. In the report, the Ombudsperson, Kim Carter, presents three interrelated areas where changes could be made to improve the current system for seniors
Time matters : an investigation into the BC Employment and Assistance reconsideration process by British Columbia( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009 it became clear from complaints received by the Office of the Ombudsperson that the Ministry of Housing and Social Development, now the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation, was not meeting the requirements in its own legislation that it complete reconsideration decisions within specified time limits. As a result some ministry clients permanently lost benefits they were entitled to receive, and would have received, had reconsideration decisions been made in time. This report identifies a number of decisions made by the ministry that affected its ability to conduct reconsiderations in the timeframe required as well as additional factors that influence the timeliness of reconsiderations on an ongoing basis

Progress reported in implementing the 2009 Braidwood report recommendations and processing police complaints by British Columbia( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Underpinning this committee inquiry is the belief that in a functioning democracy based on the rule of law, there must be effective civilian oversight of police conduct to uphold public trust in law enforcement agencies and the complaint process. Since 1999, the tool kit of police forces in British Columbia has included a conducted energy weapon (CEW) to be deployed in a volatile situation where use of force is necessary to control or subdue a person who is resisting police commands and/or posing a threat to public safety. On the use-of-force continuum, a CEW (commonly referred to as a Taser) falls into the category of an intermediate (or less-lethal) weapon, defined as a weapon whose normal use is not intended or likely to cause serious injury or death. However, the tragic CEW-related death of Robert Dziekański at Vancouver International Airport on October 14, 2007 alarmed the public, attracted intense media scrutiny and prompted a two-phase inquiry in British Columbia conducted by retired justice Thomas R. Braidwood, and an investigation undertaken by a committee of the Canadian House of Commons. In line with a dual mandate, this report is divided into two parts. Part 1 contains a summary of the follow-up review of the 2009 Braidwood report recommendations on restricting CEW use in British Columbia. Part 2 reports on the police complaint audit commissioned by the Committee.--Document
