In 2006, Dr. John O’Connor, a Nova Scotia physician then working in Fort Chipewyan, Alberta, alleged that an epidemic of cancer was occurring in northern Alberta—and because of the oilsands operations there. In light of this, Frontier has decided to post the November 4, 2009 College of Physicians and Surgeons investigation of Dr. O’Connor.
