Sound Familiar?

From The Canadian Press:
Terminal cancer patients, organ-transplant recipients and suicidal, debt-addled Canadians are among the 11,000 people waiting to have their appeals heard by Ottawa's badly backlogged social security tribunal.
Some of those awaiting a decision on their eligibility for benefits, including people with debilitating injuries, have had their cases expedited due to severely declining health.# Others, however, have waited years — some are still waiting — to hear whether the initial decision to deny them Canada Pension Plan disability benefits will be overturned.
Given the nature of their illnesses, a decision may come too late.

i wonder if they have a similarly high proportion of claimant's who are simply jobless and grasping at straws clogging up the system and delaying legitimate claims?
