AUTHOR RETURNS TO ALBERTA TO COMMEMORATE ANNIVERSARIES OF BROTHER’S DEATH AND LAUNCH OF BOOK
Eight years have passed since the death of Dr. Douglas George Snider at the hand of another physician, Abe Cooper, in Fairview, Alberta. Since then, reports of the search for Dr. Snider, the trial of Abe Cooper and subsequent Appeal and Parole Board hearings have intrigued and mystified the public.
In A Doctor’s Calling: A matter of conscience, Snider’s younger sister Hazel (Schattschneider) Magnussen, a retired registered nurse, brings a personal and professional perspective to this eulogy to her brother’s life and call for reform in the medical regulatory and criminal justice systems. Released a year ago and described as informative, thoughtful and courageous, A Doctor’s Calling has been well received by Albertans.
