From yesterday's Ottawa Citizen:

In an article on page A10 of the Jan. 30 edition of the Citizen, a number of inaccurate statements were made about Ottawa surgeon Dr. Joel Freeman.

Dr. Freeman was never convicted of any offence over an alleged road rage incident in September 2004 and received an absolute discharge after pleading guilty to the charge of assault in April 2006. At that time, Dr. Freeman was acquitted of a charge of assault with a weapon, and a charge of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose was withdrawn by the Crown, after no evidence was led that he held a closed pocket knife during the incident. Further, Dr. Freeman was not forced to resign his privileges at The Ottawa Hospital but did so voluntarily in June 2005.

The Citizen apologizes to Dr. Freeman for any harm caused by these errors.
