I just sent the following to the Chair of the Board of the OMA. It is my letter of resignation.
It will come as no surprise. It is time to move forward in a new direction.
Gail Beck, MD
Chair of the Board of Directors,
Ontario Medical Association
Dear Dr Beck
Please accept my resignation as Co-Chair of the Ontario Medical Association Negotiations Committee.
The members have clearly spoken and they have rejected the agreement that was brought forward for them to consider.
We have a difficult road forward but my resignation will make that road much clearer.
I want to thank you and all of your colleagues on the Board and indeed all the members of this Association for the kindness and courtesy that has always been shown to me.
Scott Douglas Wooder, MD
