      One of Ontario's more outspoken physicians is Dr. Michelle Cohen.

      She's a family doctor and assistant professor at Queen's University, as well as an occasional columnist on the CBC website.

      This morning, Cohen used her Twitter feed to contextualize why an Alberta doctor was not penalized for hanging a noose to a hospital door to target a Black surgical assistant.

      The story, which was unearthed by CBC reporters Jennie Russell and Charles Rusnell, has generated outrage across the country.

      Cohen linked Alberta Health Services's response to the medical profession's history of white supremacy.
