The article discusses the approval of the new policy entitled "Physicians and the Ontario Human Rights Code" by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. According to the policy, compliance with the code is one factor the college will consider when evaluating physician conduct. The policy lists things the college expects of all Ontario doctors, regardless of their moral or religious beliefs. The new policy in Ontario is primarily a precautionary measure, a response to changes at the Ontario Human Rights Commission that will make it easier for patients to bring discrimination charges against doctors.
