Canadian Medical Association

Nanoose Bay, BC; University of British Columbia, 1962; family medicine; honorary member, Canadian Medical Association. Died March 20, 2019, aged 81. Survived by his wife Jill and a daughter and granddaughter. “Charles started in family practice in Victoria, and in 1967 moved to Duncan, BC, where he practised until his retirement in 2000. He continued to practise in walk-in clinics in Victoria before finally leaving family practice in 2003. In the 1960s he was very active with political ambitions within the Social Credit Party, and was a candidate for the BC Legislature in 4 elections. In the ’70s he was president of the Cowichan Valley Medical Society and chief of medical staff at the Cowichan Hospital. He also became active with the BC Medical Association (BCMA), serving on its Patterns of Practice Committee and on the Medical Advisory Committee to the Medical Services Plan of BC (MSPBC). He also served as BCMA representative to the Audit and Inspection Committee of the MSPBC before finally retiring in 2005.” A friend and colleague wrote: “Addie was highly respected by his medical colleagues. He had been a bagpiper since his youth, so perhaps there will be a ‘skirl of the pipes’ where this fine man now rests.”
