Ontario Doctors Speak Out Against Human Rights Violations at H...
ONTARIO DOCTORS SPEAK OUT AGAINST HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS AT THE HANDS OF WYNNE'S LIBERALS On April 10th, Concerned Ontario Doctors and Doctors Ontario held a joint press conference at Queen's Park to speak out against the serious human rights violations of Bills 84 and 87. These Bills imposed by Wynne's Liberal government are unconscionable and unjustly violate 6 Sections of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and 8 Articles the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. "Once Bill 87 passes, the CPSO will publish all patient complaints publicly on their website and will have the ability to both temporarily and permanently revoke a physician's license before a committee hearing ever occurs and before any evidence is ever presented." Even the worst of offenders are presumed innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. Apparently that does not apply to Ontario's physicians who will lose their presumption of innocence. For Bill 84, there is nothing that protects a physician's conscience rights in regards to medical assistance in dying (MAID). Those that disobey will be reprimanded by the CPSO and lose their medical license. There is no reason to pit patient access against doctors' conscience rights. Other Canadian provinces have very effectively ensured the preservation of both with a self-referral co-ordinated care model. It strikes the perfect balance of rights and freedoms as envisioned by our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, “My idea of freedom is that we should protect the rights of people to believe what their conscience dictates, but fight equally hard to protect people from having the beliefs of others imposed upon them.” Ontario stands alone in denying physicians protection of conscience rights. "None of us ever envisioned whether we took the Hippocratic Oath 40 years ago or 4 years ago, that we would one day be legislated to cooperate in the death of our patients." The Charter of Rights and Freedoms must not apply to most Canadians. It must apply to all Canadians. Learn more in the video below.

Update: A sad day - on April 11, 2017, Wynne's Liberal government voted down the Bill 84 amendment to protect doctors fundamental Human Right of conscience. NDP abstained from the vote. Ontario has become the first jurisdiction in the democratic world to strip anyone of their conscience rights. A basic human right protected under both the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the UN Declaration of Human Rights. Public committee hearings on Bill 87 start on April 12th. ----------------------------- www.carenotcuts.ca #onpoli #carenotcuts #onhealth #onthealth #cdnpoli #cdnhealth #patientsfirst #wynne #doctor #patient #medicine #pcpo #ondp #onlib #ontario #health #hcsm #cpc #lpc #ndp #pttory #ptndp #ptlib #meded #dumpHoskins #stopbill41 #repealbill41 #bill84 #bill87 #charter35Posted by We are Your Ontario Doctors on Tuesday, April 11, 2017
The Ontario Liberal government has unilaterally cut over $2.5 Billion from the patient services your doctors provide since January 2015. They have implemented reckless programs targeting new family medicine graduates. They are now revamping the healthcare system and changing the way all physicians in Ontario practice -- all without any front-line input.
Family doctors are having to close their doors. Specialists and surgeons are leaving the province. Graduating residents are being forced to start their practices elsewhere.
Ontario's physicians are now forced to ration care for their patients.
We are on your side and we are telling you that the current Government is dismantling medicare piece by piece.
We are your Concerned Ontario Doctors, and we are standing up and fighting to save our healthcare system.
We need to bring Canadian values back to Ontario.
Please add your voice to ours to tell the Ontario Government what healthcare should look like!
