Saskatchewan doctor charged with sending threatening text to colleague

YORKTON, Sask. - A physician from Yorkton, Sask., has been charged with unprofessional and discreditable conduct for several text messages sent to another doctor.

In late July, Dr. Cornelius Spies was charged by the executive committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan.

According to the charges listed on the college's website, Spies allegedly suggested in one text message that the other physician was having an extra-marital affair and warned him to "watch your back."

Spies was also alleged to have warned the other doctor to leave town.

A hearing will be held on the charges in the upcoming months.
