Candidate statement

Your professional integrity matters to me, and I will fight to defend it. I am writing to ask for your support in my bid for Re-Election.
During these pandemic times while we try to implement EDI (in which I have organizational experience) and when CMPA has had significant turnover on Council, I feel it is valuable to have Councillors with experience and the ability to provide corporate memory.
I remain available as a 7 days/week resource to you when required as many of you have requested ([email protected]) 905-702-3003.
Through my experience and participation on every CMPA committee, I believe that the most important current and future priorities for the CMPA are:
1.Defending your integrity and reputation – including issues related to virtual care -- never settling solely for expediency.
2.Implementing EDI and providing a safe place for all staff and all doctors contacting CMPA.
3.Providing the high-quality ongoing education and advice combined with your commitment to patient safety that has reduced your annual risk of being named in a lawsuit by 50% over the last few years.
4.Supporting you personally through any legal or regulatory process while creating programs that will continue to assist you to avoid these regulatory processes - and demanding that they be both fair and transparent.
5.Extending the subsidy program for our membership fees. (I participated in negotiating this program).
6.Managing our investment portfolio prudently and encouraging the continuing development of a robust actuarial model to estimate our future liabilities. (previous FHN/FHO, ED-AFA, etc. model negotiator).
With many years of practicing full comprehensive family medicine in rural and semi-urban environments and having provided expert advice to CMPA lawyers on many occasions, I feel that I understand how easy it is for a case to “go wrong” and how important it is to have a vibrant organization to support and defend us. I am also exposed to the ever-increasing array of medico-legal and regulatory risks.
Thank you for your confidence in me, and for your vote of support
