Did you Know?

In 1984, in an attempt to restrict newly licensed physicians access to practice, legislation was passed which limited billing numbers. Dr. P. Wilson supported by PARI-BC and the Canadian Association of Interns and Residents (CAIR), filed a Charter challenge against the legislation, known as Bill 41. Chief Justice Lysyk deems Bill 41 constitutional. This was appealed by PARI-BC and CAIR and overturned by the BC Court of Appeal. The restrictions were lifted.
