Hundreds of Canadian doctors demand lower salaries. (Yes, lower.)
In a move that can only be described as utterly Canadian, hundreds of doctors in Quebec are protesting their pay raises, saying they already make too much money.
As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 700 physicians, residents and medical students from the Canadian province had signed an online petition asking for their pay raises to be canceled. A group named Médecins Québécois Pour le Régime (MQRP), which represents Quebec doctors and advocates for public health, started the petition Feb. 25.
“We, Quebec doctors who believe in a strong public system, oppose the recent salary increases negotiated by our medical federations,” the petition reads in French.

It is an interesting move and I understand it. They earn a lot of money, while in other parts of the health services lots of downsizing has taken place. I think the medical profession is within the public domain, no matter how it is financed and the incomes should be at that level. The Washington Post article didn't get that.
