A Kenora doctor is speaking out against the provincial government’s decision to walk away from an arbitration process for Ontario doctors.
Dr. Clay Hammett has written an open letter to Kenora-Rainy River MPP Greg Rickford saying he’s shocked by the government’s move to withdraw from binding arbitration with Ontario Medical Association.
He says the government’s actions “ignore its legal and moral obligation to participate in a fair and independent binding arbitration process, undermining the foundation of any meaningful partnership.”
Hammett adds that the provincial government has been alienating its physicians for the last six to eight years and the new Ford government is continuing that trend.
He’s calling on Rickford to stand up against the decision and continue the arbitration process.
