B.C. Man Shocked to Discover Worker's Compensation File Describes Him as a 'Redneck Hick'

A Merritt, B.C., man is speaking out after he says he was surprised to discover derogatory comments about him in his official worker's compensation file.

Robert Munro, 37, injured his back on the job in December while delivering furniture and sought physiotherapy for treatment.

Upon review of his WorkSafeBC file, he found comments referring to him as a "redneck hick to death" and an "uneducated massive redneck py." Munro immediately reported the situation to his case manager and filed a complaint with the Interior Health Authority.

Interior Health has confirmed the complaint, said it is currently under investigation and has removed the inappropriate comments from Munro's file.


Munro has since been referred to another physiotherapist at a different clinic but says he would like an apology from the original practitioner. He is still too upset to know what kind of resolution he wants but says, "a major apology would be nice."

The physiotherapist involved has not responded to requests for comment by CBC.
