The article focuses on the opposition of physicians to the set of proposed bylaws to govern health services in Prince Edward Island (PEI). Medical Society of Prince Edward Island president Rachel Kassner stresses that the bylaws will provide Health PEI the authority to handle complaints against physicians. However, Health PEI executive director of medical affairs Richard Wedge emphasizes that the bylaws do not undermine professional self-regulation.
