Re: Jane Shin issues apology to Korean community, Burnaby NOW, Aug. 16, 2013
All non-Korean-speaking citizens of B.C. have the right to know the proven facts. NDP MLA Jane Shin's tearful apology and attempt at clarifying all the confusion over her professional credentials turned out to be riddled with disingenuous and false statements.
Rather, Shin added new falsified statements to her list of false claims concerning her professional background.
According to an Aug. 16 article published by the local Korean media outlet "VanChosun," the report concluded that Shin's explanation to the Korean community that she is "able to practise medicine in the United States" is "proven to be false." The report cited the reason as Shin "never having done her residency."
It is common sense that completing one's residency is a basic requirement for any aspiring medical doctor to have completed to even be qualified to write a medical-license exam.
According to local Korean news reports, Shin had told the Korean community - in her attempt to salvage her trust from disheartened Korean-community members - that she passed her medical-license exam in the United States soon after receiving her MD in 2007.
She also confirmed through the Korean media that she is able to practise medicine as a medical doctor in the United States.
In another VanChosun article published on Aug. 16 on the Jane Shin controversy, Shin's response to the reporter's question about which part of the United States she had received her U.S. medical license was: "California, Chicago, this part is a bit hazy." Shin then quipped: "Do I need to even tell about something like this?"
Jane Shin must stop toying with the Korean-Canadian community and stop treating them with such unacceptable disrespect. Also, all B.C. citizens have the right to know how Shin is behaving and treating the people of different ethnic backgrounds.
The B.C. citizens are paying tax dollars and placing their trust on their politicians to serve in their best interest.
The truth needs to be known and all B.C. citizens have the right to the truth and should be treated with respect. The NDP should also be mindful about how they treat this serious matter - because this is not about politics.
This is about basic honesty, respect, and being a conscionable human being.
Now it is time for MLA Jane Shin to issue an apology to all of B.C., and provide an explanation about her latest false statements regarding her credentials to practise as a medical doctor in the United States.
