OTTAWA - John Tory says a Progressive Conservative government won't impose user fees for the health care system.

Campaigning in Ottawa, the Tory leader said he's exchanged messages with former cabinet minister Frank Klees, who suggested the fees in a debate last week in Toronto.

Klees' comment was pounced upon by Liberal Health Minister George Smitherman as proof the Tories would bring in such fees if they win the Oct. 10 election.

Smitherman said this week "Klees fees" lie in the future under a Conservative regime. Today, at a campaign event in Ottawa at which he touted his party policy to direct all gasoline and fuel taxes to roads, bridges and public transit,

Tory confirmed he'd had a exchange of messages earlier with Klees. While he didn't criticize Klees, Tory made it clear he has no use for user fees.

"They will not be part of party policy," Tory declared. Tory noted the Canada Health Act forbids such fees, to ensure universality, and he has no plans to change that.

"I am in support of the Canada Health Act and I will be, every day I am premier of this province," Tory said.

Klees was quoted as saying fees for visits to doctors were a good idea to discourage abuse of the health care system and saving money overall.

Tory has said he plans to scrap the $2.6-billion personal health care tax imposed by the Liberals, and still spend $8.5 billion more a year by the fourth year of a PC government. He told listeners of an Ottawa call-in radio show he would tap into the $5 billion in extra revenue the province sees every year to fund improvements to health care.

Tory said he would replace health-tax revenue through unspecified efficiencies in government and greater use of electronic health records. Asked whether he'd restore government funding for chiropractic and eye-examination services, removed from OHIP coverage under the Liberals, he said he has no plans to.

The Conservative leader said he's aware of concern about low-income earners and seniors no longer covered for such fees and is prepared to consider the issue further if elected. But he's making no promises now.

On the CFRA radio show, Tory was peppered with questions about his plan to extend government funding to private faith-based schools that follow provincial standards, a move he said is needed in the interests of fairness. His party calculates it would cost about $400 million a year to fund such education.

Tory said despite polling that shows the majority of Ontarians oppose the move, he won't change his mind. "This is a matter of principle, it's not about popularity polls," he said. "This addresses an inequity." After Ottawa, Tory attended campaign events in Nepean and Cornwall. [email protected]

The Committee found Dr. Bradley to be guilty of failure to maintain the standard of practice of the profession. Particulars (b),(c),(e),(f), and (g) were proven; particulars (a) and (d) were not proven. The allegation of disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional conduct was not proven and a finding of incompetence was not promoted by the prosecution counsel.
The Committee accepted the prosecution expert witness' testimony that the evidence of bleeding was overwhelming. The patient was in shock, with hypotension, and was anuric. By the end of the second operation, he had been give 18 units of blood. Dr. Bradley's written notes and the anaesthetist's described a large amount of blood in the abdomen.
The Committee also accepted that Dr. Bradley's assessment, diagnosis and management was below the standard of a general surgeon practising in a community hospital.
The testimony of the two surgical defence experts was, in large part, not accepted. Their synthesis of the events and their diagnosis was not acted upon at the time by Dr. Bradley, and therefore was considered retrospective. They were unreasonably sure of their beliefs and biased in favour of the physician.
The Committee believes that Dr. Bradley should have attended his patient by 1430 hours or, at the latest, at 1515 hours. When he did visit the hospital he failed to appreciate the gravity of the patient's condition; he fell below the standard again by failing to attend the patient after the 1550 telephone call and after the 1820 telephone call. He failed to recognize the seriousness of the patient's condition as reflected by his orders, his failure to attend the hospital, or the lateness of his ultimate activity, and by his testimony at the hearing. Clearly, he failed to make a proper diagnosis and he failed to order proper and timely treatment.
The allegation of disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional conduct was found not proven. The Committee believed that Dr. Bradley did not intentionally mislead the family regarding the prognosis.
In submissions regarding penalty, the Committee learned of a previous 1987 College decision at which time Dr. Bradley was found to be guilty of professional misconduct with regard to two patients with whom he committed serious errors of surgical judgment.
Considering these two cases and the current case, the Committee concluded that Dr. Bradley has serious shortcomings in the areas of surgical judgment and knowledge, and that in the management of these cases, he showed a lack of prudence and a cavalier disregard for his patients' best interests. The Committee believes that at this time Dr. Bradley should not be in independent practice and that practice restrictions could adequately address the issues. Dr. Bradley should not engage in independent medical practice but may practice under appropriate supervision as defined by the Registrar. Specifically, he should be precluded from playing a role where surgical judgment and knowledge are important factors.
In order to have the practice restrictions removed, Dr. Bradley should be required to demonstrate his deficiencies have been corrected by satisfactory completion of a period of re-training as a resident.
Accordingly, the penalty was as follows:
1. A reprimand, and the fact of the reprimand is to be recorded on the Register.
2. A condition be placed on Dr. Bradley's certificate of registration such that he be prohibited from independent clinical practice until such time as he completes a course of post-graduate study as a resident in surgery in a program that is at least 12 months in duration and approved by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. At the completion of the program, the program director must certify that Dr. Bradley has remedied his deficiencies in clinical judgment and knowledge.

A judge didn't buy the defence that Dr. John Kitakufe was naïve to the perils of Oxycontin and fooled by drug companies into believing the heroin-like painkiller wasn't dangerously addictive.

In sentencing Kitakufe yesterday to five years in prison, concurrent with two sentences of 24 months each, Justice Peter Harris remarked that the "disgraced" physician had to know about the dangers of Oxycontin simply by the "heavy demand" for it.

By Harris' estimation, Kitakufe, who was born in Uganda, poured 2 1/2 vials or almost 225 pills onto the black market each day for roughly 494 days, from February 2005 to September 2006 when he was caught.

Oxycontin is a highly addictive time-release drug prescribed for chronic pain.

"It's such an egregious breach of trust that it's almost impossible to understand how (Kitakufe) could simply turn a blind eye to the effects of his actions," Harris said.

Kitakufe, 61, pleaded guilty three months ago to the drug charge and defrauding the health care system of nearly $750,000.

Harris sentenced him to five years for trafficking in Oxycontin, concurrent with two years each for defrauding the Ontario drug benefit program and the Ontario Health Insurance Plan.

Kitakufe fraudulently billed OHIP $193,559 for hours of phony medical exams before prescribing the drug to bogus patients. He bilked OHIP out of $574,814 as the plan was charged when patients filled their prescriptions.

He got a $200 kickback from his co-conspirators in the drug ring for every prescription he wrote. It's estimated Kitakufe penned 1,400 prescriptions and pocketed $260,000 in cash.

Kitakufe was also ordered to pay $50,000 to the province.

With credit for the 14 months Kitakufe has already spent in custody, his sentence was reduced to 32 months.

Kitakufe was convicted in the late 1980s for playing a role in a similar drug ring in the United States.

Following his conviction, Kitakufe, a Canadian citizen, fled to this country but was extradited to the U.S. in 1999 to serve 18 months in jail.
