Bragg Creek doctor leaving Canada because of new physician compensation

The Alberta Medical Association is raising the alarm about the state of rural medicine, with a poll showing 47 per cent of rural doctors having to withdraw services beginning in July. It's a result of the new contract the province has with physicians. According to a health ministry spokesperson, supports for rural doctors are going to be announced soon. But as Adam Toy reports, one Alberta doctor is packing up shop and leaving the country.
