Conservative MP Sued For Using the Title 'Doctor'

Nanaimo-Alberni MP James Lunney is being sued by a man who claims the chiropractor has misused the title of doctor for political gain.

Nanaimo's Robert Pound, in documents filed in B.C. Supreme Court in September, claims that Lunney's use of the term doctor has been confusing to voters and others.

The Chiropractors Act states that chiropractors "may display or make use of the title 'doctor' or the abbreviation 'Dr.', but only as 'Doctor of Chiropractic', 'Dr. of Chiropractic', 'Chiropractic Doctor' or 'Chiropractic Dr.'"

Canadian MP misrepresents data

Hey this is your blog holiday.

Dr. Phil, the TV guy does the same thing. Like this guy, Phil has a PhD in something like Geology, and nothing to do with the mental health profession, but he never says so. I am glad that this guy is being sued, as it is a purposeful misrepresentation. Yap, this guy is another ethnically challenged con, integrity be damned.

saskboy - I know - I cleaned the leaves out of the eaves - fixed two broken boards on a fence - went into town - had a nap - but I couldn't resist one good shot on a deserving Tory. (You know me, old habits are hard to break)
