Bob Rae’s sit­u­a­tional ethics

The Hamilton Spectator - - COMMENT -

RE: This prob­a­bly won’t end well (Feb. 10)

Bob Rae lives in a world of sit­u­a­tional ethics and rel­a­tive moral­ity akin to pseudo-sci­ence. Physi­cians, on the other hand, are gov­erned by med­i­cal sci­ence with the ab­so­lute tether that there is no eraser on the end of a scalpel. Bob Rae may sim­plis­ti­cally ap­ply so­cial con­structs such as union­ism as a cri­tique of the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion’s dispute with the OMA’s ex­ec­u­tive and the gov­ern­ment, how­ever, if he had to face the pro­fes­sional obli­ga­tion of a physi­cian 24/7, hu­mil­ity might re­vise his stance. Dou­glas L. Martin, Hamil­ton
