Get the Full StoryWhen I read that some physicians in the Canadian province of Quebec have signed a petition to halt salary increases, I was in the middle of a busy day seeing patients at my office in southern New Jersey. I turned to the doctor I share an office with and said, "Can you believe this? Doctors in Canada want to give up portions of their salaries," I said. She turned to me looking bewildered. "Why?" she asked. "Well, they want the money to be redistributed to help other health care providers and patients."
