In a thread posted on X, Gill said she was “compelled by (her) conscience to first do no harm and oppose the lockdowns.”

Anti-lockdown doctor “cautioned” by regulatory college to appeal after court quashes challenge

An Ontario court struck down a doctor’s judicial challenge of “cautions” ordered against her by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.

The Ontario Superior Court ruled against Dr. Kulvinder Kaur Gill’s application for judicial review, which sought to have the admonition removed from her professional record. Gill now plans to appeal the decision to the Court of Appeal for Ontario.

The cautions were ordered in February 2021 regarding comments Gill made on X in 2020 criticizing COVID policy and some public health guidance.

The court ordered Gill to pay the college $6,000 in legal costs.

Gill is seeking leave to appeal the decision with financial support from X; the tech company financed her judicial review, keeping with a policy announced by X owner Elon Musk to support anyone penalized or sanctioned for comments made on the platform.

Though other cautions ordered against her had been dropped after being found to be reasonable comments given the evidence available at the time, two posts she made on X were cited as reasons to maintain the warnings on her record.
