It is my understanding that the College is in the process of a hearing concerning the conduct of Dr. Hoffe. I know Dr. Hoffe and I am familiar with the present circumstances regarding his interactions with the college.

As the only living first minister who helped craft the Charter of Rights  and Freedoms , and cognizant of the hippocratic oath,  I find what the college is presently attempting to do regarding Dr. Hoffe violates these fundamental standards.

I urge you to abandon your present course and permit Dr. Hoffe to continue his excellent medical practice providing care in freedom , valuing the right of the person and in practicing the principle of doing no harm.

May I remind you of the Charter provision of ‘life , liberty and security of the person.’ This is in Canada’s most important document, our Constitution.
