Agree with that. I feel like there may have been some online exam banks for it too? , you're writing it soon, what are all of your people using? Generally I found that the content of medical school prepared people well for it without too much additional studying.

Err... pointed out very correctly that this group is running a campaign to file 'vexatious College complaints' because of what a physician advocate said. They clearly do have a problem with her speaking.

This campaign is **literally** trying to silence someone's right to speak. The entire campaign is focused on not allowing someone (a physician in this case) to speak about gun violence (which is absolutely a public health issue).

Advocacy based on our professional experience is an obligation, not an abuse.- I drive my car safely for work & fun, but I don't mind registering my vehicle/renewing my license and I advocate for road safety! Support common sense and by following

I work with physicians and I am sure many of them have a stance on gun control that I don't agree with, It is their right. I don't agree with creating complaints against them because they don't share your view. Can I call your boss and tell him I don't agree with you?

I've pointed out to them that health advocacy is a core competency of Canadian-trained physician. Their position seems to be that physicians shouldn't be able to advocate. Difficult to understand how one can believe gun ownership is a right but free speech isn't.

By all means, please include me. I'm not an advocate, lobbyist, or politician, but as a medical educator I admire her very appropriate advocacy and hope that my colleagues and our students follow her example in advocating for a safer, healthier Canada.

I have not once in this conversation demanded anything but that her voice be respected.

Please do not be rude. I haven't been and I sent references to back every statement. I appreciate that you disagree, but my colleague has a right to her voice and expertise. Gun violence is a public health issue.

I appreciate that you see it that way. Most who take care of those who have been shot and read the literature on gun violence see it quite differently. However, the bottom line is that her being a physician in no way means that she shouldn't have a voice.

I don't think that's the logical conclusion from those facts at all, but I'll take the acknowledgment that this is advocacy and and leave it at that.

I have no burden. I simply noted health advocacy is our lane. I'm happy that you agree that this is advocacy and hope you all leave this physician, who is advocating for what she thinks is right, alone to do as she was - very appropriately - trained to.

I never said anything about the root cause. However, having a gun in your home is a well-known risk factor for successfully committing suicide (or homicide). Suicide by gun more often results in death relative to other methods.
