Please Attend Nov 5 CTCMA AGM | 請各会員參與11月5日中医针灸管理局年会

Dear fellows,

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in 2017 CTCMA AGM on November 05. As the AGM can help you to understand CTCMA annual work and financial report better, we sincerely look forward to your attendance and suggestions.

AGM is important and we would like to share happiness with everyone. However, we have unwelcome news here. We received another special recall motion this year after five weeks of the EGM on August 29th of 2017. It was the same as the last “Recall Revolution" and its subsequent movements, same group submitted the recall motion, but this time they take aim at member of a council: Weidong Yu. A haze has been brought to the TCM professional community.

As one of the leader of BC traditional Chinese medical profession, Weidong Yu is committed to the unity of the BC traditional Chinese medical profession. He is diligent and public-spirited person who is highly praised by both domestic and overseas TCM profession and patients as he contributed lots for the development of TCM community and industry in BC province.

During 2012 to 2014, as the president of QATCMA, Weidong Yu made efforts to facilitate a merger between QATCMA and TCMABC and contributed for the integration of TCM community. In 2014, he shouldered tremendous pressure and led more than 400 TCM professionals to preserve the right to use Chinese in TCM industry. Because of his effort and contribution, BC province becomes the only province which allows using Chinese for TCM education, certification verification, and medical record in Canada. After being the member of council of CTCMA, Weidong Yu complies with the rule and code of conduct of the council in CTCMA. He dedicates his valuable time to the work of CTCMA and protects public interest.

Also, over the years, Weidong Yu donated a dozen times to association to invite international TCM experts for professional lectures. He volunteered to contribute money and serve for the public. He set a good example and never pursues personal interests and fame.

When he witnessed someone ignored the overall benefit of TCM profession and was impeding the development of Chinese medicine profession in province of British Columbia, he stands out and speaks up to repel the selfish behaviors and bad movement. Obviously, this recall proposal to Weidong Yu is typical distorting the truth and a retaliation action.

ATCMA thinks nobody is perfect but we can keep improving ourselves by kind communication. We are against all evil intentions and proposals. We resolutely resist the irregular conduct of misusing public resource and wasting everyone's precious time. If you want to avoid your life and career to be messed up by a minority of people who put their individual interest above the interest of TCM community, please attend the AGM and vote for justice. We trust we will conquer the bad action and maintain the healthy development of BC provincial traditional Chinese medical community.  If you are not able to attend this year AGM in person and would like to support AGM and oppose the recall motion, please do the following steps:

1.Make sure to find a TCM practitioner or acupuncturist who you can trust;

2.Fill in the Proxy Form with both of your registered English names, registered numbers, date, and signatures. You can find the Proxy Form under the following link:

http://www.ctcma.bc.ca/media/1384/2017-08-29-egm-proxy-form.pdf

3. Mail the Proxy Form to CTCMA office: “1664 West 8th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1V4” by October 29, 2017 to authorize the vote on your behalf.

In addition, we hope CTCMA can consider revising the policy which is ten persons can recall members of council. It is not fair if a member of council who is diligent and dedicated to CTCMA and the interest of public is recalled because he may be against unruly behavior from individual members. So, we hope CTCMA consider our suggestion and avoid the democratic rule to be abused.

Thank you for your time and support!

Kind Regards,

The British Columbia Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Practitioners (ATCMA)

尊敬的各位同仁:

一年一度的中医管理局年会将于今年十一月五日召开, 我们诚挚的邀请各位同仁积极出席和参加此次年会。通过年会报告,我们将很高兴和大家交流沟通想法和建议, 分享一年中的工作成果, 和汇报今年的财政报告。但我们也十分遺憾地告知大家一则令人不悦的消息。继今年八月二十九日特別大会五周之后,我们又收到了罢免理事的特別动议。和上次罢免运动及其后续运动如出一辙, 这次罢免动议是由同一組人提出,只是这次他们剑指于卫东理事,再次给卑诗省中医界带来了一份阴霾。

身为卑诗省中医界的领军人物,于卫东医师长期致力于中医界的团结,勤勤恳恳,医术精湛,热心公益,受到海内外同道与患者的高度认同,为中医业在卑诗省的立足和发展贡献良多。

在任BC省中医针灸公会QA会长期间(2012-14),努力促进了与TCMABC的合并,为中医界的整合,族裔的沟通做出了贡献。2014年于卫东中医师带领中医界400多人,顶着巨大压力,为BC省中医保护住中文的使用权,BC省成为加拿大,乃至海外唯一可以用中文进行中医教育,执照考试,书写病历的地区,显示出应有的担当和勇气,为中医事业发展再次做出了积极贡献。成為中医管理局理事会成員后,于卫东医师遵守理事行為守則和法規,为保护公众利益和支持管理局工作尽心尽力。并且为了理事会能正常运作,他积极承担了和理事成員,尤其是和公众理事们的沟通和协调的工作。

于卫东医生近几年来10多次自费邀请全世界著名中医针灸专家来加拿大为我们业界授课,所有的收入费用全部捐赠给协会。他在公会工作中不谋私利,不争名位,出钱出力,提携后学,展现出胸怀中医事业大局的境界和奉献精神。

身为一名生活在民主国家的中医师,当看到有人发动“罢免革命“,危害中医界的发展,于医师挺身而出,仗义执言,不计毁誉和中医界的多数人士一起,击退了这一不良举动,有这样的理事为我们中医界服务,是我们的幸运。显而易见,这次对于医师的罢免提案,是典型的扭曲是非和打击报复,也是对中医管理局民主议程的滥用。

我们卑诗省中医师公会认为人无完人,但我们反对一切不良企图和提案,坚决抵制滥用公共资源和浪费大家宝贵时间的不正当行为,希望大家在AGM当天,踊跃参加,投出您心中神圣的一票,击退个别人搞乱管理局的企图,维护BC省中医事业的健康发展。如果您不能出席今年年会, 但愿意投票支持CTCMA和反对罢免提案, 您可以按照以下步骤完成委托投票:

  1. 找一位您可以信任的中医同行,委托他/她代您投票
2.完成有您签名的委托投票表单,须填写您的注册中英文名及注册号和日期, 委托投票表可在以下

链接下载打印:

http://www.ctcma.bc.ca/media/1384/2017-08-29-egm-proxy-form.pdf

3.将完成后的委托投票表单于2017年10月29日前寄到CTCMA办公室,地址如下:

1664 West 8th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1V4

另外,我们也希望中医管理局能考虑修改之前十人即可罢免理事的提议,如若一位理事兢兢业业为管理局无私奉献,因为要维护大多数中医师的利益,而得罪了个别别有用心的成员,这些成员随意添加莫须有的罪名给这位理事,并要求罢免他,对这位理事是不公平的,因此我们提议中医管理局考虑修改之前十人罢免的政策。

感谢各位花费宝贵的时间阅读和参与!

此致

敬礼

卑诗省中医针灸公会理事会
