Nature of Action: Pursuant to section 35(1)(b) of the Health Professions Act R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 183 (“HPA”), the Inquiry Committee of the College of Pharmacists of British Columbia (the “College”) has ordered a suspension of the registration of registrant Shaun Ross Wiebe pending completion of an investigation, unless he provides medical evidence from an addiction medicine specialist, satisfactory to the College, that he is fit to resume practice, or he successfully applies to the Inquiry Committee to cancel the suspension under section 35(4) of the HPA.
The registrant will not be able to practice pharmacy in the province of British Columbia while his registration is suspended.
Effective Date: December 27, 2019
Reasons: The Inquiry Committee was satisfied that there is a prima facie evidence that the registrant suffers from a substance addiction that renders him unfit to practice at this time. The Inquiry Committee was of the view that the registrant’s continued practice poses a risk to the public, and that this risk cannot be addressed at this time with conditions or limits. Therefore, nothing short of suspension at this time will adequately protect the public.
