Thank you, Doug Graham, minister of health, for doing the right thing and extending the term of licence from five to seven years for Dr. Shoshtari and Dr. Syed.

You were approachable, easy to reach, willing to listen, willing to take a stand, and willing to help thousands of patients who were very close to losing their doctors. You were professional and respectful in your dealings with us.

Thank you, Jess Staffen, executive assistant to Doug Graham, for your important contributions in helping Doug and us. You worked quickly at a time when speed was extremely important.

Thank you, Liz Hanson, leader of the official Opposition, for providing us with information and encouragement. You realized the urgency of the situation and made sure that we were informed quickly and accurately.

Thank you, Denise Leschart, secretary/researcher/caseworker at the Yukon NDP caucus office, for your contributions in helping Liz, us, and the many others who contacted you.

Also, thank you to the many people who worked in the background and contributed to keeping these two doctors in Whitehorse.

Barbara and Alex Pratt
