- Thank you very much for contacting the office of Joe Preston, Member of Parliament for Elgin-Middlesex-London. Mr. Preston welcomes hearing from Canadians and being made aware of their views and all comments are brought to his attention.
- Thank you for taking the time to e-mail MP Barry Devolin. Barry always appreciates receiving correspondence from his constituents and other concerned citizens. I assure you that either Barry or a member of his staff will review your comments as soon as possible...
So far no response from the commissioner on how the investigation into the unjust, unwarranted removal of client files from my doctor's office is going.
BUT my MP's response is as follows...
Thank you for contacting Barry to express your concern.
As Member of Parliament, it is inappropriate for Barry to intervene in files within the care & control of a police agency.
As you have outlined in your letter, if you feel your rights have been violated, you should consider contacting the Ontario Civilian Police Commission. They are in a better position to assist you.
Unfortunately due to the nature of your inquiry, we are unable to further assist you. If you have any future concerns regarding unrelated matters please do not hesitate to contact me.
My response to this letter:
Dear Marnie Hoppenrath,
Thank you for your speedy response. Since it is deemed inappropriate for Barry to intervene in files within the care & control of a police agency, could you please advice me what type of help Barry does consider appropriate when one calls on him for help or guidance. A great number of people have had their privacy violated and the confidentiality we all expect when going to a doctor has been broken. Barry is part of the system that governs the doctors and police who then impact each and everyone of us including but not limited to me, as they see fit, regardless of how we/I feel about their inappropriate and fraudulent actions against us/me. What about our basic human rights other than having the police investigate themselves, what about having one of your many other agencies looking into this injustice? Please let me know what else i can do other than contacting the Ontario Civilian Police Commission. It seriously seems oxymoronic to have the police investigate themselves.
