There you have it! It's official.

Doctors Careless with Word
July 14, 2008

The minister of health is accusing the association which represents doctors of being opportunistic and creating a false impression of a crisis. Ross Wiseman wants the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association to quit using the word "crisis" when focusing on a particular community, region or medical field. On VOCM Open Line with Randy Simms this morning, Wiseman said the association is laying the groundwork for the next round of bargaining in nine months' time. The medical association declined immediate comment on the minister's accusations. Meanwhile, in reacting to a recommendation from the Canadian Association of Pathologists for improved testing for diseases such as breast cancer, Wiseman says the province has already done so. The minister says all medical labs in the province now have to follow an accreditation process.
