Legal Defense

Campaign Created by: Patrick Phillips

The funds from this campaign will be received by Patrick Phillips.

Goal: CAD $75,000
Raised: CAD $ 51,114

Patrick Phillips is an emergency and family physician in Englehart, Ontario.

Through the course of the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdowns he started to see some major harms that his patients were suffering from, that were not being picked up by public health officials. From missed cancer screenings resulting in terminal cancer diagnoses, to a surge in suicidal children, he knew he could not remain silent. Despite guidance and edicts from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario ordering doctors to remain silent on the harms of lockdowns and vaccine adverse events, Dr Phillips continued to openly discuss the harms he was seeing and the treatments that were proving useful in the medical evidence. The College has since restricted his license and sent allegations to their tribunal for him to be disciplined, possibly resulting in a suspension or revocation of his medical license. 

He was initially working with Rocco Galati Law for his legal defense but is now with Michael Alexander who also represents a number of other physicians fighting legal cases against the CPSO on Covid related issues.  He is raising funds to be able to fund a robust challenge to their regulations so that he and all other physicians can continue to speak freely and give free, fully informed consent to the public. The most recent legal challenge was in the motion to dismiss hearing involving himself, Dr Trozzi and Dr Luchkiw. 

Any contributions to this cause would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Everyone, 

I'm sure many of you have heard through other channels, but I wanted to give an official update to all of you who have supported me in my legal fight over the last 3 years. The news essentially is that I made the decision to plead no-contest to all the charges of professional misconduct and incompetence against me. Through all of this strife and conflict and continual losses on the legal front, there was a voice in my heart that grew stronger and stronger over the past few years. It said to me "there must be another way". I didn't really know what that was until I really listened and found it in the path of unconditional love and forgiveness, even of our enemies. I had such a blessing through the course of this nightmare of finding a spiritual path of finding God and peace on the inside, rather than trying to fix the world on the outside. When I genuinely forgave in gratitude for the CPSO and my "enemies" I finally started to experience unconditional peace that comes from God within, not the world. 

Check out this thread and video where I explain a lot more detail about my decision (audio is poor but it improves)

As a result of all of this, I have found some level of healing and peace that I now want to give to others who are suffering in this world and struggling to forgive and see the world as God does. So I'm excited to announce that I have launched my new spiritual counselling service:

Here's a video of my launch I just put out today explaining what I hope to give (good audio in this one!):

It's counselling on the level of spirituality, the Gospels, finding God on the inside and deep genuine forgiveness. If this is something that appeals to you feel free to book in anytime:

- Self-schedule an appointment online

- Pay only what you can afford

- Spiritual based counselling over zoom

- Practices and guides: A Course in Miracles, the Gospels, Non-duality, genuine forgiveness

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your prayers, support and financial backing. I'm so grateful for all of it. I look forward to being able to offer healing on a much deeper level than I ever could as a physician. I hope to meet some of you soon. Book in anytime!

Take care and God bless!

Dear Donors,

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for your generous donation to my legal defense fund. Your gift will help me to fight the charges that have been brought against me, and I am deeply grateful for your support.

As you know, I'm a family doctor who has been outspoken about my concerns about the official government policies on COVID-19. I believe that these policies are harmful to patients, and I have spoken out about them in public. As a result, I have been charged with unprofessional conduct and my medical license is under threat.

 Your help so far has allowed us to bring forth two pre-trial motions in my case and the cases of Dr Mark Trozzi and Dr Crystal Luchkiw who have also lost their licenses for similar reasons. The first was brought on Nov 23 2022 to dismiss our cases on the grounds that the investigations were not based on violations of any regulations. We lost that motion but gained a huge admission from the college and tribunal that all of their Covid policies on prohibiting criticism of public health, writing vax exemptions and prescribing off label treatments for Covid are suggestion only and of no binding legal effect. Nevertheless they assert that their ability to find professional misconduct is essentially unlimited so all charges remained. See my twitter thread here for my full analysis: My lawyer appealed the irrational decision to the chair of the tribunal and we were granted a second hearing to review March 13, but of course nothing changed. They dismissed our motion to strike evidence that came from investigations targeted at violating suggestions - an activity which is entirely legal by their own admission.  It became clear that we need to appeal all our cases to an independent court in order to get some semblance of the rule of law.

Your donation is helping me to pay for my legal fees and will allow me to focus on fighting these charges. Our lawyer, Michael Alexander, is working tirelessly off only donations and most of his time is essentially pro-bono. That said he does need to pay for food and rent and so please know your donation goes very far in our cases. 

Dr Luchkiw's merits hearing (trial) starts May 17 and my merits trial begins June 13 2023. Your prayers are very much appreciated for this. You can request a link to watch the trials remotely by emailing 

We have a joint website now: and we plan to issue updates through there and through here. 

If you would like to contact me, the best way is to email me at and we can arrange a phone call or chat by email. 

I am so grateful for your support. Your gift means the world to me.

Thank you again for your prayers and your generosity.
