Ontario's premier restored a compensation promise to the families of four slain Ottawa-Carleton city workers who were shot and killed by a co-worker.

A provincially appointed amalgamation transition board had originally overturned the deal giving the families compensation.

The board was appointed to oversee the merger of 11 Ottawa-area municipalities. Premier Mike Harris vetoed the unelected body''s decision less than a week after it decided to strip the families of the compensation packages.
