A handful of New Brunswick doctors who were suspended more than four months ago for being unvaccinated against COVID-19 or failing to provide proof can again practise medicine.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick has reinstated five of the nine doctors, including one specialist and four family doctors, registrar Dr. Ed Schollenberg confirmed Wednesday.

Two other specialists are expected to be reinstated on Thursday, he said.

One family doctor has decided to leave the province.

The college has not yet heard from the other family doctor about whether they plan to return to practice, Schollenberg said.

When the doctors were suspended, Schollenberg said physicians have to lead by example and also not put their patients’ health in jeopardy.

  1. This should never have happened, not in a modern so called FREE western world nation at least. These doctors and many other people in all professions suffering from such need to sue their government(s) for discrimination.

    PEOPLE WE MUST NEVER FORGET AND MUST VOTE OUT ALL POLITICIANS WHO SUPPORTED THIS CRAP AND ABUSE OF CHARTER RIGHTS!!! Test your political candidates by asking them before you vote if they supported or support vaccine (essentially medical intervention) mandates? VOTE ACCORDINGLY!

  2. Agreed. The genie is out of the bottle on this one. The entire medical system is now subject to political science, not real science. Real science allows for debate, even when it’s inconvenient or unwanted, because the process of thesis, documentation, observation and conclusion is still followed. When you resort to threatening anyone/everyone that does not your ‘version’ of science, it ceases to be that and instead becomes ideology.

    If I was a doctor I would refuse to return unless I had something in writing with signatures from a legally-binding institution that this would never happen again. The trust is broken. Governments broke the medical system and a whole bunch of suckers went along with the game. Why should we believe anything they say, now?
