An outspoken Ontario doctor is in court this week so a judge can review the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario’s “cautions” against her COVID-19 commentary.

Dr. Kulvinder Kaur Gill’s judicial review is slated for Wednesday before the Ontario Superior Court.

Her legal costs have been largely supported by Elon Musk’s X Corp.. Gill is fighting to quash three cautions ordered against her by the college for her commentary on what was then Twitter at the height of COVID panic. 
“The (college) issued guidance that doctors’ opinions during COVID-19 had to align with the government, and took steps to censure ethical physicians who raised alarm bells about public health policies,” said Gill’s lawyer, Lisa Bildy of Libertas Law. “But the stifling of scientific debate, especially on novel measures being imposed on a massive scale, is not reasonable, in our submission, nor is it in the public interest.”

Gill is a specialized physician practicing in Brampton, Ont. with postgraduate training in pediatrics, allergies, and clinical immunology.

Her training includes scientific research in microbiology, virology and vaccinology at the Public Health Agency of Canada’s highest security level-4 biosafety laboratory in Canada, the National Microbiology Laboratory.

Gill shared scientific studies and opinions questioning the scientific and ethical justifications for the lockdowns and other public health measures in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Her advocacy attracted the ire of the Ontario medical college beginning Aug. 2020 after seven complaints were made and a separate registrar’s investigation was launched against her.

The college’s complaints committee dismissed five of the eight complaints against her, finding them to be based on reasonable scientific and medical evidence available at the time.

The committee ordered three separate cautions be placed on Gill’s record based on two separate tweets made on Aug. 4, 2020. One asserted there was “absolutely no medical or scientific reason for this prolonged, harmful and illogical lockdown.”

The proceedings will take place Wednesday morning at 10 a.m at Osgoode Hall in Toronto.
