One of the biggest proponents of private health care in Canada has lost his bid for a second time to become president of Doctors of B.C.
He was beat by Golden doctor Trina Larsen Soles who becomes the president-elect of the organization that represents the province’s doctors.
A note sent to members from the CEO says a total number of 3570 votes were cast.
Dr. Trina Larsen Soles was elected as President-Elect with 1896 votes and Dr. Brian Day received 1674 votes.
Controversy erupted in the field last year when Day, a polarizing figure, was elected president by a single vote.
A recount showed he was actually tied with Dr. Alan Ruddiman.
In a run-off election Ruddiman won after an unprecedented 50 percent voter turnout.
Day is the co-owner of a private surgical clinic embroiled in a legal dispute with the province over private billing.
