As you know, the city of Ottawa has suffered tremendous inconvenience, destruction and sheer carnage over the past 22 days by the so-called Freedom Convoy. I lived in Sudbury for almost 35 years and met a number of physicians associated with the Group Health Center when I was a vocational rehabilitation specialist with Great West Life. I have always found the physicians and staff at Group Health Center most outstanding and professional.

Specifically, in this letter, I will address the $50 donation that former Group Heath Center President and CEO Alex Lambert made to the so-called Freedom Convoy. I understand that this small donation resulted in his dismissal. I commend the Group Health Center for its quick decision to fire him.

I won’t go into the level of irreparable harm caused by the so-called Freedom Convoy and its supporters – including Alex Lambert. The entire Ottawa community has been through hell for the past three weeks.

Although the donation was modest in actual amount, I personally consider Lambert’s level of responsibility to be equal to that of the truckers, government and anyone else who donated or participated in the destruction of downtown ‘Ottawa. A man of his professional level was just plain stupid to donate any amount to the so-called Freedom Convoy.

As a proud Canadian and very proud of our nation’s capital, I have personally pledged to write 100 letters before Christmas 2022 to people like Lambert who funded the so-called Freedom Convoy. Shame on you!

Mr. Lambert – I’m a guy who means no harm to anyone but I have no sympathy for you.
