As everyone can see, more than half a page is devoted to encouraging docs to rat on colleagues.  Brian is eager and ready to assist physicians in doing so. 
Should they require answers regarding policy they may also count on Brian to sidestep the issue with a non-committal response.. Should they persist in their quest for answers, they will be informed sharply that further attempts at clarification on the subject will be ignored. 
The  following link , though dating back from 1996, to 2005, is a perfect example of this. 
Clearly Brian Goldig, Rocco Gerace, Maureen Boon, Jill Hefley and others have been thoroughly programmed/brainwashed to uphold the mandate of the College to keep its options open without benefit of policy. They don’t hesitate to “pass the buck” when things get “hot”. When cornered with irrefutable logic, the ”’offender” is advised with barely disguised hostility to “bug off” and that further enquiries on the subject will be ignored. Brian, Rocco, Maureen and Jill are not some of the greater intellects still hanging around at the College (see link). 
Reliable sources confirm that he “tradition of secrecy” continues to this day with Brian, who should soon have a new assistant for this “challenging” 35 hr./week job (not overworked by any standards). The job is well-paid with lots of  benefits and time off.  Apparently it is considered mentally strenuous to show up for work each day and walk the fine line between saying nothing and having the other party think you answered their questions. A simple enquiry may result in a lengthy but unproductive exchange before it becomes clear that a response will not be forthcoming and the physician will give up in frustration and disgust or is told to go away and not to mention the subject again.  It must be equally stressful to justify years of unproductive labour by encouraging physicians to rat on colleagues.

Brian’s picture shows a typical middle-level bureaucrat who has “reached the level of his incompetence” (The Peter Principle) and whose aim in life is not to be noticed, but to carry on in a safe job until he retires at 65 with a good 20 years  to spare, paid for by Ontario’s doctors’ ever increasing CPSO taxation.
