The article reports that medical liability fees of Ontario physicians will be reduced by 4.2% to 4,150 dollars from 4,332 dollars in 2012. It mentions that the reduction was the result of an agreement between the Ontario Medical Association and the government of Ontario, and will make use of Canadian Medical Protection Association (CMPA) assets. CMPA chief executive officer John Gray said the 2012 fee cut gained criticisms from members.
