Oct 25, 2021

Four Alberta doctors are suing the provincial health authority and its president over its mandatory workplace COVID-19 vaccination policy.

The physicians filed a statement of claim last Friday in the Calgary Courts Centre.

The plaintiffs — Calgary pediatric neurologist Dr. Eric T. Payne, Calgary anesthesiologist Dr. Joanna J. Moser, Ponoka family physician Dr. Gregory Keen-Wai Chan and Sexsmith family physician Dr. David Loewen — allege that, by requiring them to get vaccinated against COVID-19, Alberta Health Services (AHS) is engaging in a conspiracy to commit assault.

“Any medical procedure performed on a patient without their informed consent amounts to assault,” the statement of claim says.

The vaccination requirement applies to all workers at AHS, Alberta Precision Labs, Carewest, CapitalCare and Covenant Health workers, and members of medical and midwifery staffs, among others.
