He’s not back at work. He’s on paid leave. With the *bleep* up set of laws in this province, he’s innocent until proven guilty. This means his wages remain as if there were no charges against him. When the courts have decided if he’s guilty or not is when his employment status changes.
Having lived in several Third World countries I can assure you that innocent until proven guilty is certainly a preferable option to guilty until proven innocent.

With no meaningful details that I know of it's absolutely impossible to even begin to give a thoughtful opinion as to his guilt and evidence.

I will simply say that with an arrest in mid 2021, and a court date of Jan 2023, the taxpayers will already be out close to half a million in salary by the time this gets anywhere....

You have to read the article. Yup he is back at work.
https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/3 ... -last-year
Interior Health confirms Dr. de Villiers returned to work on Oct. 4, 2021 and was “reassigned to administrative duties."
Throughout the 2021/2022 fiscal year, from March 31, 2021 to March 31, 2022, Interior Health paid Dr. de Villiers a total of $361,656. This was a 75% increase from $205,636 he made the year prior.
More recently, Dr. de Villiers was hit with more criminal charges.
( https://www.castanet.net/news/Kelowna/3 ... in-Alberta )
Last month, he was charged with invitation to sexual touching, making sexually explicit material available to a child and voyeurism.

I believe in "innocent till proven guilty", but it looks pretty bad for this guy.

If they can't fire him then at least we are getting something for our money with him back to work.

But he’s on administrative duties. It’s not like he’s getting paid for nothing. Besides he’s going to court for the original charge in January.
de Villiers is set to face trial on the original charges Jan. 10 to 12 in Grande Prairie.

Yup, he’s back at work. Not at the job he was hired to do, but something to justify, even if slightly, the wage being paid to him by this country’s *bleep* up laws. Administrative duties are used in many fields of employment when the individual’s character is in question until it all gets sorted out.

Hopefully the individual/s who brought this to everyone attention are more then strong enough to be cross examined by defence attorney/s, don’t buckle under pressure.

Time will tell I guess.

All defence attorney needs is the tiniest speck of reasonable doubt, Dr goes free even if he knows he is guilty (meaning the Dr).

This is one of biggest reason vast majority of sexual assault go unreported, because victim knows reasonable doubt will get them every time.

Again time will tell.

I agree. However, IHA is all about wasting money, I saw the report of highest paid civil servants in BC and guess which health region has the highest paid CEO? Also, guess which health region is closest to actual collapse in no small part because of years of mismanagement? Our very own IHA, of course. Inferior Health Authority.
