OTTAWA – A lawyer for MP Olivia Chow (Trinity-Spadina) has sent a letter to Dr. Brian Day, President-elect of the Canadian Medical Association, demanding an immediate withdrawal of his statement and a full public apology.
Day claimed in a speech to the Fraser Institute that Chow had private surgery. Chow is an ardent supporter of Canada’s national public health care system in the strong tradition of the legendary New Democrat, Tommy Douglas.
Olivia Chow will be available for comment.
