Velvet Martin's comment, September 23, 10:04 PM
Dear Mr. Denis,
I am requesting a review of the work of Dr. Matshes who also wants a review of his work done.
This review should be conducted by the National Association of Medical Examiners.
If this review indicates that the work done by Dr. Matshes is perfect then I want to know why the autopsy of the baby that he did where he indicated that there was a homicide was overturned and made into a non-homicide.
It is also curious to me that after Dr. Matshes left the Calgary Medical Examiner's Office that he was given a job by the AHS folks. If he was incompetent why did he get a job with AHS?
Surely this means he was competent? And even the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta had no problems with his work.
So then why the witch hunt?
This is a cover up in my mind.
But a cover up of what?
I want to know.
If he was being punished for saying the truth about the baby who died and then there was no justification to fire him--and he had to be hired elsewhere by the government then I want to know.
I believe that Dr. Matshes was moved around.
He was basically employed by the government of Alberta all through this mess.
The government of Alberta is in charge of AHS which is in charge of Calgary Lab Services so this feels (in my mind) as if an inconvenient employee was moved from a position where he was giving the public autopsy results that weren't reflecting well on the government of Alberta and put behind the scenes in a pathologist position at Calgary Lab Services.
It is so neat how the Tories do their work of cover up. I mean what else can I think? Dr. Matshes was employed by the AHS folks through Calgary Lab Services which is run by AHS and so is part of government. He merely got switched around.
It is curious that the government of Alberta would first go on a witch hunt of Dr. Matshes so that he leaves the Calgary Medical Examiner's Office-- then the supposedly incompetent pathologist is employed by AHS --which is the body that the government of Alberta delegates medical work to in this province.
Eventually maybe Dr. Matshes got tired of the constraints on his practice.
Dr. Matshes is of course competent and can't yap until he gets a non-government job elsewhere.
As soon as Dr. Matshes leaves Alberta, he yaps to us about the true state of affairs which is that something is corrupt in the state of Alberta.
I'd say that there is enough here to have that baby's autopsy checked yet again--but this time by the National Association of Medical Examiners.
All these stories--- in Alberta Justice and Alberta Health not to mention the medical examiner's offices in both Calgary and Edmonton--- make my head spin.
I trust you will get going to do this work on that baby ASAP.
Sincerely,
Julie

Friday, September 19, 2014
The former Calgary pathologist whose findings were questioned by provincial officials is calling for a wide-ranging probe of Alberta’s “broken” medical examiner’s system. Dr. Evan Matshes called on the Alberta government to engage the National Association of Medical Examiners — the profession’s American umbrella group — to re-examine his disputed findings, as well work done by all current and former provincial medical examiners. “The medical examiner system in Alberta is broken,” Matshes said in a written statement.---------
