MONTREAL – Quebec's college of physicians says it's on the hunt for a fake doctor who claims to be the only one in Montreal who can do a prostate exam while a patient's pants are still on.
The college has charged Ken Montizambert, an osteopath and naturopath, with 12 charges of practising without a license and using a false title.
In a court motion this week, the college accused Montizambert of ordering blood tests and prescribing medication at the Tri-Med clinic in Montreal's west end.
The college also says the man has made false claims related to prostate cancer treatments.
It discovered the alleged scam following a complaint by Quebec's order of dentists.
On Earth Day, Manitoba’s government announced it would restrict the use of
certain pesticides that pose serious health and environmental risks. But did you know that you played a role?
In June, the bill passed its third and final reading in the Legislature, paving the way for a ban on cosmetic pesticides — chemicals used on lawns and gardens to improve their appearance — to take effect in 2015.
I work at Ecojustice because I want to protect humans, animals and the environment they need to survive. As a lawyer, I work to strengthen environmental laws and governments’ enforcement of those laws. And for the past several years, your support means I've been able to help groups campaigning for a cosmetic pesticide ban in Manitoba.
I live in Toronto, but I grew up in Manitoba. As a kid, I spent a lot of time gardening, climbing trees and playing with my friends on lawns and in parks. Unfortunately, the chemical industry has convinced many people that that we need to spray pesticides to rid our green spaces of weeds.
The cost of using many of these pesticides for cosmetic purposes is too high. Research says that some pesticides may harm animals or humans, especially children. Risks include cancer, as well as reproductive and respiratory problems.

Connecticut Association of Public School Superintendents: School officials have used more expensive and labor-intensive organic treatments, which have proven ineffective. Many fields have been extensively damaged or are even unplayable, compromising student safety. Additionally the ban has led to problems with pests, diseases and invasives like poison ivy.
