Hello {!firstname_fix}

Re: Unreasonable


A Big Hi to you this Friday.

This is day 3 of my NEW no longer being able
to practice Veterinary Medicine career..

So far it doesn't feel too different- although in a week or so from
now it will start to set in.

Thanks again for ALL of your support- I had more than a few local
clients come up to me yesterday, ALL being in support of what I am
going through.

For those of you who don't know, the story is here:


It comes down to my Veterinary College NOT being reasonable or

Leveling EXCESSIVE fines against me.

And misinterpreting their own Bylaws and applying that to my
newsletter and book.

A big part of WHAT I am so disappointed about, is that in
negotiations with my lawyer and the Inquiry Committee lawyer, I was
told that:

'The College wants you to be able to keep practicing, and keep your
Internet business, you just need to make some changes'

So I agreed to some sort of mediated agreement, as opposed to
challenge the validity of the Bylaws in a Court of Law.

And the result is the $30,000 fine, PLUS Inquiry Committee costs,
PLUS change my entire Internet newsletter - And IF I were to breach
the Bylaws again ( of which I would have), then face additional
fines and suspension.

An example of a fairly seemingly innocuous statement in the report..

87. Section B, Tab 6, "The Truth About Pet Vaccinations" Counsel
for the BCVMA highlighted only one statement of Dr Jones which was
of concern:

Most veterinarians just choose to ignore the research because
either they still feel the benefits of vaccines outweigh the risk,
or they don't want to lost the income from giving booster shots to
all those animals each year.

88. As in Section B, Tab 5, in making this statement, the panel
concluded that Dr Jones contravened ss. 8, 26, 27, 100 and 104(e)
of the Code of Ethics (Bylaws)

First that seems to me like a fairly balanced and reasonable
statement- and I suspect that many pet owners, IF asked, would
agree with what I said.

Secondly, you can now see HOW it would be virtually impossible for
me to keep publishing this newsletter and abide by the College of
Veterinarians By Laws.
