APPEARING: For the Complainant: Self-represented

For the College: Jessica Abells, Legal Counsel

For Registrant 1:

For Registrant 2:

For Registrant 3:






[1] The Complainant has asked the Review Board to review the decision of the Registrar to dismiss complaints against Registrants 1, 2 and 3 as provided for in s.32(3)(a) and (b) of the Act. The Registrar’s decision was reviewed and endorsed by the Inquiry Committee of the College and pursuant to s.32(5) is “considered to be a disposition of the Inquiry Committee.”


[2] The Complainant filed a complaint with the College in April 2017 complaining of the conduct of the Registrants and others (the “Complaint”).

[3] While I am not privy to all of the steps that occurred in the College’s investigatory process, it is clear that the College appointed outside legal counsel as an inspector (the “Inspector”) to screen the Complaint and brief the Registrar regarding her legal authority to dispose of it. After receiving the inspector’s report, the Registrar signed a “Report on the Registrar’s Action” and provided it to the Inquiry Committee as required by s.32(4) of the Act,

[4] After considering the Report on the Registrar’s Action, the Inquiry Committee confirmed the Registrar’s proposed disposition under s.32(5) of the Act. The Inspector wrote to the Complainant on May 29, 2018. While the Inspector did not sign the letter on behalf of the Inquiry Committee, I assume this was intended to be a “summary of the disposition” as provided for in s.34 of the Act.

[5] On June 28, 2018, the Complainant filed three Applications for Review.

[6] On January 2, 2019, this matter was assigned to me by the Chair of the Review Board for a "Stage 1 hearing." At a Stage 1 hearing I may decide to:

(a) confirm the Inquiry Committee disposition under s.50.6(8)(a) of the Act if the application for review can be fairly, properly and finally adjudicated on the merits without the need for submissions from the College and Registrant; or

(b) determine that the application requires adjudication in a Stage 2 hearing, in which case no decision will be made until after requesting submissions from the College and Registrant, and further reply submissions from the Complainant.

[7] After reviewing the record of investigation provided by the College (the “Record”), the Complainant’s Applications for Review, correspondence from the Complainant and from the Ministry of Attorney General and the Complainant’s hearing submission, I am satisfied that this matter can be appropriately dealt with at Stage 1, i.e. without hearing from the College or the Registrants.

Materials Considered in this Review

[8] In reaching my decision, I considered:

the Applications for Review filed June 28, 2018;

the 179-page Record;

submissions from the Complainant regarding redactions to the Record,

dated October 26, 2018, and November 6, 2018;

submissions from the Complainant dated November 13, 2018, regarding

concerns that she has regarding communicating with her given her

concerns for the possibility of retaliation from one of the Registrants and

the, then, postal strike;

correspondence from the Ministry of Attorney General dated December 4,

2018, regarding the Constitutional Question; and

the Complainant’s December 13, 2018, Stage 1 submissions (122 pages)

appending a Form 11 “Additional Documents” referencing eight “bankers’

boxes” of documents that were couriered to the Review Board in

December 2018 (the “Bankers’ Boxes”) and naming witnesses that she

asks that the Review Board interview.


[9] The Complainant is a former registrant of the College. At the time of the Complaint, she was employed as a registered nurse at a rural hospital in the interior of British Columbia (the “Rural Hospital”). The Complaint involves allegations and comments involving several registrants of the College and others.

[10] Registrant 1 is a registrant of the College and in the Complaint, it is alleged that she engaged in activities on behalf of the British Columbia Nurses’ Union on a locked ward of a hospital in the interior of British Columbia other than the Rural Hospital. She was not employed at the Rural Hospital. The Complaint also alleges that Registrant 1, as a union representative, inadequately represented the Complainant in a workplace dispute involving Registrant 2.

[11] Registrant 2 is a registrant of the College and at the time of the Complaint was employed as a registered nurse at the Rural Hospital in a position subordinate to the Complainant.

[12] Registrant 3 is a registrant of the College and at the time of the Complaint was employed as a hospital administrator of the Rural Hospital.

[13] The Complainant complained about two other individuals. In the Disposition Letter, the Inspector asserts that neither individual was a registrant of the College. The Complaint asserts that one of the individuals, “TM” is a registrant of the College. TM is only tangentially referenced in the Complaint. I will have more to say about the College’s reference to this individual in the letter sent by the inspector later in this decision.


[14] The Act governs the College’s oversight of applications for registration and its supervision of registrants. It provides authority for the College to investigate complaints regarding the conduct or competence of registrants. In addition, the Act provides the Review Board with authority to review Inquiry Committee dispositions of complaints.

Role of the Registrar and of the Inquiry Committee

[15] The Registrar’s role is provided for in s.32 of the Act:

32 (1) A person who wishes to make a complaint against a registrant must deliver

the complaint in writing to the registrar.

(2) As soon as practicable after receiving a complaint, the registrar must deliver

to the inquiry committee a copy of the complaint, an assessment of the complaint

and any recommendations of the registrar for the disposition of the complaint.

(3) Despite subsection (2), the registrar, if authorized by the board, may dismiss

a complaint, or request that the registrant act as described in section 36(1),

without reference to the inquiry committee if the registrar determines that the


(a) is trivial, frivolous, vexatious or made in bad faith,

(b) does not contain allegations that, if admitted or proven, would

constitute a matter subject to investigation by the inquiry committee under

section 33(4).

(c) contains allegations that, if admitted or proven, would constitute a

matter, other than a serious matter, subject to investigation by the inquiry

committee under section 33 (4).

(4) If a complaint is disposed of under subsection (3), the registrar must deliver a

written report to the inquiry committee about the circ*mstances of the disposition.

(5) A disposition under subsection (3) is considered to be a disposition by the

inquiry committee unless the inquiry committee gives the registrar written

direction to proceed under subsection (2).

[16] Section 34 of the Act then provides:

34 If the inquiry committee disposes of a matter under section 32 (5) or 33 (6) (a) or (b), the inquiry committee must, within 30 days of disposition, deliver to the complainant, if any, a written summary of the disposition advising the complainant of the right to apply for a review by the review board under section 50.6.

[17] In this instance, an inspector reviewed the complaint and prepared a summary and legal memorandum for the Registrar. The Registrar decided to dismiss the complaints under s.32 of the Act and signed a report that summarized the Complainant’s complaints against the Registrants and others, the College’s attempts to clarify the complaints, the “evidence” regarding the complaints, an analysis of the complaints and her disposition of the complaints under s.32(3)(a) and (b) of the Act.

[18] The Inquiry Committee met on May 10, 2018,1 reviewed the Report on the Registrar’s Action and resolved to adopt the Registrar’s proposed disposition of the Complaint.

[19] On May 29, 2018, the inspector wrote the Complainant advising her of the Inquiry Committee’s decision to uphold the Registrar’s disposition dismissing the complaints.

1 The Inquiry Committee Minutes are dated April 10, 2018, and bear a header of the same date (Record

at pp. 35-44). A further document entitled “IC Decision Record” is dated May 10, 2018 (Record at p. 45).

Role of the Review Board

[20] Under s.50.6(1) of the Act, a person may apply to the Review Board for a review of the disposition of the Inquiry Committee. The Complainant applied for such a review.

[21] Section 50.6(5) of the Act sets out the responsibility of the Review Board when conducting a review:

50.6 (5) On receipt of an application under subsection (1), the review board must

conduct a review of the disposition and must consider one or both of the


(a) the adequacy of the investigation conducted respecting the


(b) the reasonableness of the disposition.

[22] Section 50.6(8) of the Act sets out the powers of the Review Board after completing the review:

50.6 (8) On completion of its review under this section, the review board may make an


(a) confirming the disposition of the inquiry committee,

(b) directing the inquiry committee to make a disposition that could

have been made by the inquiry committee in the matter, or

(c) sending the matter back to the inquiry committee for

reconsideration with directions.

[23] Section 50.64 of the Act provides that certain sections of the Administrative Tribunals Act (the “ATA”), as identified in Column 1 of the Schedule, apply for the purposes of review under s.50.6 of the Act. Among the enumerated provisions are ss.44 and 46 of the ATA which provides as follows:

44 (1) The tribunal does not have jurisdiction over constitutional questions.2

(2) Subsection (1) applies to all applications made before, on or after the date that the

subsection applies to a tribunal.

46 If a constitutional question over which the tribunal has jurisdiction is raised in a

tribunal proceeding, the party who raises the question must give notice in compliance

with section 8 of the Constitutional Question Act.

[24] My task, on behalf of the Review Board, as described in s.50.6(5) of the Act, is to review the College's disposition of the complaint and to consider the adequacy of the investigation, the reasonableness of the disposition, or both. In this case, the Complainant asked that I review both.

2 Section 1 of the ATA defines "constitutional question" to mean “any question that requires notice to be

given under section 8 of the Constitutional Question Act”. The only exclusion from this definition is a Charter challenge whose object is to exclude evidence under s.24(2) of the Charter.


[25] Before I review the merits of the Complainant’s applications for review and her submissions to the Review Board, I must address the following preliminary matters:

(a) Relief sought by the Complainant in her submissions to the Review Board (the “Remedies”);

(b) The Complainant’s request to add information to the Record for review. Specifically, 8 Bankers’ Boxes of documents and several witnesses that she suggested ought to be interviewed by the Review Board (the “Additional Documents and Witnesses”).

The Remedies

[26] In her submissions to the Review Board dated December 13, 2018, the Complainant identified sixteen “remedies” that she is seeking from the Review Board and which are in addition to the statutory remedies available to her under the Act as identified in her Applications for Review. I have paraphrased the December 13, 2018, remedies sought by the Complainant as follows:

(a) Rename the hospital where she was employed during the time complained of (“the Hospital”);

(b) Rename an environmental landmark (a waterfall);

(c) Repeal the legislation that established the Registered Nurses’ Association of British Columbia (the “Constitutional Challenge”);

(d) Give nurses a choice about whether to belong to a union;

(e) Investigate the British Columbia Labour Relations Board and its decisions where union members have been unsuccessful in complaints against their unions;

(f) Change the Workers Compensation Act to eliminate discrimination against primarily female-dominated professions;

(g) Investigate a certain lawyer for conflict of interest;

(h) Investigate other “Vander Zalm” initiatives for corruption;

(i) Confer Workers Compensation benefits on the Complainant;

(j) Award the Complainant damages for certain government-decisions involving her;

(k) Award the Complainant damages for bullying and harassing by regulated nurses;

(l) Award damages to any nurse-member of the RNABC for abolition of their support network;

(m)Conduct an external investigation into bullying and harassing at the Hospital leading to the dismissal of certain individuals;

(n) Award the Complainant costs as a “self-represented litigant”; and

(o) Any other remedies that make sense to a lawyer.

[27] As noted above, I have only the powers conferred on me under the Act. I have no authority to grant the Complainant any of the remedies identified in para. [26]. Rather, the Review Board may only make an order confirming a disposition, direct the Inquiry Committee to make an order that it could have made or send the matter back to the Inquiry Committee for reconsideration, with directions.

[28] To be clear, the Review Board has no jurisdiction to rename hospitals or environmental landmarks, repeal or amend legislation, investigate legal counsel or government-sponsored initiatives, confer benefits under legislation, award damages, conduct or order an external investigation in to alleged incidents of workplace bullying or harassment, award costs or provide any remedies apart from those set out in s.50.6(8) of the Act.

[29] For further clarity and more specifically, s.50.64 of the Act and s.44 of the ATA provide that the Review Board has no jurisdiction over constitutional questions. I note that the Complainant provided notice to the Attorney General that she has raised a constitutional question in her Applications for Review. As the Review Board has no jurisdiction over such matters, I have not sought submissions from legal counsel on behalf of the Attorney General, but a copy of this decision will be provided to legal counsel.

[30] For all of the above reasons, I am dismissing the Complainant’s request for the relief identified at pages 119-120 of her December 13, 2018, submissions as summarized in para. [26] above.

[31] The remedies which the Complainant seeks that are within my jurisdiction are those identified in her Applications for Review with respect to the Registrants and include one or more of the following with respect to each of the Registrants:

Direct the Inquiry Committee to direct the Registrar to issue a citation against

the Registrants;

Direct the Inquiry Committee to issue citations against the Registrants;

Direct the Inquiry Committee to request, in writing, that the Registrants

undertake not to repeat the conduct which is the subject of the Complaint;

Direct the Inquiry Committee to request, in writing, that the Registrants

undertake to take specified educational courses;

Direct the Inquiry Committee to request, in writing, that the Registrants consent

to a reprimand; and

Send the matter back to the Inquiry Committee for reconsideration, with


The Additional Documents and Witnesses

[32] The Complainant submits that the Bankers’ Boxes of documents and the testimony of five witnesses (including the Complainant) is reasonably required by the Review Board for a full and fair disclosure of all matters related to the issues under review.

[33] It is not clear to me whether the documents contained in the Bankers’ Boxes are the same as the “4000 pages” that the Complainant submitted to the College but were not considered by the Registrar or the Inquiry Committee. From my understanding of the Complaint and my review of the Bankers’ Boxes, it seems likely that many, if not most of the documents that the Complainant provided to the Review Board were also provided by her to the College.

[34] In order to determine whether it was necessary to fairly and properly adjudicate this review that I consider the Additional Documents, I spent several days reviewing the contents of the Bankers’ Boxes. I have attached to this decision, as Appendix “A” a summary of their content. The documents include policy papers, statutes and regulations, case law, news articles, results of “Google” searches, financial statements for organizations, self-generated tables and statements generated by the Complainant, Annual Reports of various health professions’ colleges, printouts from nursing-related websites, email correspondence between the Complainant and other health care professionals, lawyers, government officials and others and more. The documents span a wide range of topics and address issues occurring over more than a century. The only “order” to the documents that I could ascertain is alphabetical. That is to say that each box contains many file folders of documents that are organized by the title that the Complainant assigned, commencing with folders whose title begins with the letter “A” in Box #1 and ending with folders whose titles begin with the letter “W” in Box #8. For example, one of the first file folders contained in Box #1 is entitled “Autonomic Dysregulation” and contains various articles on the autonomic nervous system. Another folder, in Box #4 consists of folders whose titles begin with the letters “H” to “L” including a folder entitled “Learning from disaster – Crashing planes” which contains various articles about plane crashes and other disasters.

[35] Some of the documents in the Bankers’ Boxes contain personal health and employment information about some of the Registrants as well as patients and employees of a health authority who are not the subject of the Complaint or this review. The information in these documents appears to have come into the Complainant’s possession during her employment as a nurse. I am not aware whether these documents were included in the 4000 pages of documents that were provided to the College but not considered by the Registrar or the Inquiry Committee.

[36] The Complainant identified four individuals, by name only, whom she asserts could provide evidence to the Review Board regarding wrongful dismissal, constructive dismissal, bullying and harassment by an individual who is not the subject of this review as well as by Registrant 1. She asserts that the Review Board ought to hear from these witnesses “because it provides the context within which the decisions were made that led to my injury.”

[37] After a careful review of the Bankers’ Boxes and considering the list of witnesses and the reasons that the Complainant asserts they ought to be interviewed, I can say with confidence that neither the Additional Documents nor the witnesses’ testimony is “reasonably required for a full and fair disclosure of all matters related to the issues under review.” In other words, I am satisfied that I have all the information that I require in the Record and the Complainant’s submissions, to decide whether the Registrar and the Inquiry Committee adequately investigated the Complaint and reasonable disposed of it.

VI DISCUSSION The Complainant’s submissions

[38] In her 120-page submissions to the Review Board, the Complainant points to a number of concerns that she has with the adequacy of the investigation and the reasonableness of the disposition of her complaint. I have summarized the Complainant’s main concerns, as I understand them, as follows:

(1) The College did not investigate the complaint in a timely manner and as a result, the Complainant “los(t) the ability to discuss the contents of the complaint due to her mental health injury”; the College “stonewall(ed)” the Complainant with endless requests for clarification of the Complaint;

(2) The College erred in focusing on the Complainant’s 32-page submission letter rather than reviewing the evidence in support of the Complaint (the 4000 pages of documents); the Intake Investigator made no attempt to review the documents;

(3) The College wrongly concluded that the 4000 pages of documentary evidence was unorganized when it was not. The submission was a distillation of a 6000-page submission that the Complainant made to WorkSafeBC and was in “date order”;

(4) The College failed to accommodate the Complainant’s “mental health impairment” when it required evidence in the form of “incidents, dates, times, policies and procedures that were broken, and standards of practice breached”; had she been accommodated, she would have been able to “illuminate” the evidence;

(5) The College failed to “accurately portray the nature of the Complaint to the Registered Nurses on the Review Board” by:

(i) Characterizing the Complainant as unwilling to clarify the Complaint when she was willing to do so until her mental health deteriorated after September 2017;

(ii) Noting that TM was not a registrant of the College when it ought to have known that there was a Registered Nurse with a slightly different spelling of her last name;

(6) The Registrar had no authority to act without the supervision of a Registered Nurse on the “investigative panel”; the Registrar wrongly accepted the

Inspector’s version of the investigation without any oversight by a Registered Nurse;

(7) The language used in the Disposition Letter to dismiss the Complaint was “excessively vitriolic” and intended to be “humiliating and demeaning for a person with mental health issues”;

(8) The College engaged in victim-blaming;

(9) The College failed to consider that nursing standards prohibit bullying;

(10) The disposition is not “sufficiently justifiable, transparent and intelligent”, and

(11) The College’s actions were “cruel and unusual punishment” for the Complainant.

[39] I have considered all of the Complainant’s submissions, whether specifically referenced in this decision or not, in the context of the College’s duty to the public to investigate complaints about registrants and considering the steps taken by the Registrar and the Inquiry Committee in this particular case.

Decision-making under ss. 32(3)(a) and (b)

[40] When the Registrar receives a complaint about a registrant under s.32(1) of the Act, the Registrar’s role is to provide the Inquiry Committee with a copy of the complaint, her assessment of it and any recommendations she may have regarding disposing of the matter. Alternatively, the Registrar may dismiss the complaint without referring the matter on to the Inquiry Committee in certain circ*mstances. Those circ*mstances are set out in s.32(3) of the Act:

32(3) Despite subsection (2), the registrar, if authorized by the board, may dismiss a

complaint, or request that the registrant act as described in section 36 (1), without

reference to the inquiry committee if the registrar determines that the complaint

(a) is trivial, frivolous, vexatious, or made in bad faith,

(b) does not contain allegations that, if admitted or proven, would constitute a

matter subject to investigation by the inquiry committee under section 33 (4), or

(c) contains allegations that, if admitted or proven, would constitute a matter,

other than a serious matter, subject to investigation by the inquiry committee

under section 33 (4).

[41] In Review Board Decision No. 2011-HPA-0018(a) (“Decision 0018(a)”) (2012 BCHPRB 2), a five person Review Board panel noted that even though the Act only uses the word “investigate” in relation to Inquiry Committee dispositions (s.33), the Registrar has the implicit power to investigate complaints when the Registrar disposes of them under s.32 of the Act:

[43] … under s.32(3), the Registrar has the independent power, despite s.32(2), to make a request under s.36(1), or to dismiss a complaint without reference to the Inquiry

Committee. As discussed further below, we have concluded … that the Registrar must have the power to investigate before he can make a request under s.36(1), and must have the power to investigate some classes of cases falling under s.32(3). The proper interpretation must recognize that in some of those instances, the Registrar’s investigation may well be over before he or she determines that the matter should be referred to the inquiry committee for further action in a report under s.32(2). [footnote omitted]

[42] With regard to s.32(3)(a) of the Act, Decision 0018(a) stated:

[54] Section 32(3)(a) – “the Registrar determines that the complaint is trivial, frivolous, vexatious or made in bad faith. As pointed out in DecisionNo.2009-HPA-0045(a) at para. [41], a decision on these grounds can often be made on the face of the complaint (as courts do), or relatively quickly based on follow up inquiries. However, as this is an administrative and not a court process, we do not think it is right to restrict the Registrar from undertaking an investigation before reaching this conclusion. This power should be interpreted flexibly, especially since whoever makes this decision, it will be subject to review by the Review Board. The fact that the Inquiry Committee has the same power in s. 33(6)(a), to be exercised after an investigation, does not limit the Registrar’s process before dismissing a complaint on that basis.

[43] With regard to s. 32(3)(b) of the Act, Decision 0018(a) stated:

[55] Section 32(3)(b) –“the Registrar determines that the complaint does not contain allegations that, if admitted or proven, would constitute a matter subject to investigation under section 33(4)”: This dismissal power is unique. Its purpose is to allow the Registrar to dismiss complaints that are not within the mandate of the College because they do not fall within any of the grounds that could be investigated under s.33(4):

33(4)The inquiry committee may, on its own motion, investigate a registrant

regarding any of the following matters:

(a) a contravention of this Act, the regulations or the bylaws;

(a.1) a conviction for an indictable offence;

(b) a failure to comply with a standard, limit or condition imposed under

this Act;

(c) professional misconduct or unprofessional conduct;

(c.1) [Repealed 2008-29-34.]

(d) competence to practise the designated health profession;

(e) a physical or mental ailment, an emotional disturbance or an addiction

to alcohol or drugs that impairs his or her ability to practise the designated

health profession.

[56] Subject to any inquiries the Registrar needs to make to clarify allegations in a complaint for this purpose, we agree with Decision No. 2009-HPA-0045(a) that, based on the wording of s.32(3)(b),a dismissal under this subsection must be based solely on the complaint allegations. Its purpose is to allow the dismissal of complaints that would not be subject to investigation, because they are not within the jurisdiction of the Inquiry Committee to investigate. Section 33(4), in effect, sets forth the matters in respect of which a complaint has to be based in order to be successful. Even if admitted or proven the facts alleged in the complaint must constitute behaviour which comes within the

ambit of the matters set forth in the paragraphs of s.33(4). If not, s.32(3)(b) applies and the complaint could be dismissed by the Registrar subject to s.32(5) as mentioned above. An example of a s.32(3)(b) fact pattern is Review Board Decision No. 2010-HPA-0002(b).

[44] Decision 0018(a) went on to discuss in some detail decision-making by the Registrar under s.32(3)(c) of the Act which requires both a jurisdictional predicate (allegations that, if admitted or proven, would constitute a matter, other than a serious matter) and an assessment of the merits of a complaint: paras. [57-71].

[45] I will add, for completeness, that the panel in Decision 0018(a) discussed the legal effect of the Inquiry Committee’s role under s.32(5) of the Act:

[33] The statement in s. 32(5) that a registrar’s disposition is “considered to be a disposition by the inquiry committee” does not require the College to obscure who made the decision. Nor does it change the legal reality –made plain in the opening words of s. 32(5) -that the disposition was made under s.32(3). If the decision was made outside s. 32(3), section 32(5) cannot be read as retroactively validating unlawful decisions. Section 32(5) serves other purposes. One is to give the inquiry committee the opportunity to direct that it (and not the registrar) will make the decision following an investigation under s.32(2): “As soon as practicable after receiving a complaint, the registrar must deliver to the inquiry committee a copy of the complaint, an assessment of the complaint and any recommendations of the registrar for the disposition of the complaint.” The other purpose of s. 32(5) is to ensure that registrar’s decisions comply with the notification requirements in s.34 and 36(1.1) of the Act and are reviewable by the Review Board under s.50.6 of the Act.

[46] As can be seen, each subsection of s.32(3) of the Act has a different purpose, with different legal requirements. These differences must be taken into account when the Review Board assesses the “adequacy of the investigation” and the “reasonableness of the disposition.” For example, when a complaint is dismissed under s.32(3)(b), the requirement for “adequacy” may be minimal – the real issue will often be whether the disposition is reasonable based on the Registrar’s assessment of the allegations as admitted or proven (subject to any clarification that ought to have been sought). Where a complaint is dismissed as being “trivial, frivolous, vexatious or in bad faith,” the assessment of adequacy or reasonableness may or may not be more involved depending on the nature of the complaint, any efforts by the College to clarify the complaint and its reasons for relying on s.32(3)(a).

[47] In this case, the Registrar assessed the Complaint against the Registrants and decided to dismiss it under ss.32(3)(a) and (b) of the Act. It is therefore a Registrar’s disposition even though, as required by the Act, it was subsequently provided to the Inquiry Committee in a report under s.32(4), was approved by the Committee under s.32(5), and a summary of that report was sent to the Complainant by the Inspector under s.34. It is the Registrar’s disposition that is under review.

[48] The steps the Registrar took in assessing the complaint are set out in the 23-page “Report on Registrar’s Action” that was prepared for the Registrar on April 19, 2018. Appended to the Registrar’s Report is an undated and unauthored legal document entitled “Brief on Registrar’s Power to Address Complaints.” The Inquiry

Committee considered the Registrar’s Report and resolved to adopt the Registrar’s proposed disposition of the Complaint at its May 10, 2018 meeting.3

[49] I pause to note that I have applied a presumption of regularity to the actions of both the inspector and the Registrar in assessing the complaint and communicating the disposition: Canada Safeway Ltd. v. Surrey (City), 2004 BCCA 499 at para. [24], where the Court endorsed the statement: “Where a person is shown to have acted in an official capacity it is supposed that the person would not intrude herself or himself into a public situation without authorization.” On this basis, I have presumed that the Registrar duly appointed the inspector to assist her in her preliminary assessment and investigation of the Complaint and that the inspector acted within the confines of his appointment in assessing the Complaint and notifying the Complainant of the Inquiry Committee’s disposition of the Complaint.

[50] That said, it would assist the Review Board in future reviews for the Record to have included the instrument appointing the inspector, and for the Inspector to have made it clear, in compliance with the statute, that his letter to the Complainant was not his own summary, but was rather being sent on behalf of the Inquiry Committee as required by s.34 of the Act.

Adequacy of the Investigation

[51] From my review of the Record, including the Registrar’s Report, I conclude that the following steps were taken by the College following receipt of the Complaint:

(a) The College received an April 18, 2017, letter of complaint from the Complainant together with “nearly 4000 pages of hard-copy documents” (the Complaint”);

(b) Legal counsel in the Registration, Inquiry and Discipline department of the College (the “Intake Investigator”) wrote the Complainant on October 6, 2017, summarizing her understanding of the Complaint and advising of the next steps in the complaint process, i.e. information gathering to “assess whether regulatory intervention is required to protect the public.”4 The Intake Investigator cautioned the Complainant that the College might not have jurisdiction “to investigate... all parts of your complaint” and posed questions to the Complainant seeking to clarify aspects of the Complaint. Further, she advised the Complainant that the Registrants had not been advised of the Complaint and would not be until the College better understood the Complaint and determined whether it had jurisdiction to investigate. Once the College had an answer to the questions, it would determine what steps needed to be taken to “fully investigate” the Complaint (Record at pages 112-117)

3 The Inquiry Committee Minutes as found at pages 35-44 reference a teleconference meeting of April 10,

2018. Page 45 of the Record references an Inquiry Committee Decision Record of May 10, 2018. The Index to the Record provided by legal counsel to the College references the Minutes at pages 35-44 as corresponding to a May 10, 2018, meeting. On January 22, 2019, legal counsel advised the Review Board that the Record at pages 35-44 ought to refer to a teleconference meeting of “May 10, 2018.” 4 The Intake Investigator identified herself only as legal counsel in the College’s Registration, Inquiry and

Discipline department until February 2018.

(c) The Intake Investigator spoke with the Complainant by telephone on October 10, 2017, advising her that the College “would not be reading through the 4000 pages of material she sent” and requiring that the Complainant provide more information regarding how Registrant 1’s practice was “incompetent/unsafe” with reference to specific events and how the Registrant’s actions impacted patient safety and pointing to any specific document in the 4000 pages of documents in support of her allegations (Record at page 149).

(d) On December 28, 2017, the Intake Investigator wrote in follow-up to her October 6, 2017, letter to the Complainant and in follow-up to the telephone conversation of October 10, 2017. The Intake Investigator noted that the College had not received the requested information from the Complainant and sought confirmation (by January 31, 2018) as to whether the Complainant wished to pursue the Complaint and reminded her of the need to provide answers to the questions posed by the Intake Investigator in her October 6, 2017, letter (Record at pages 119-120).

(e) The Intake Investigator received a letter from the Complainant dated January 16, 2018, stating that “(d)ue to my mental health disability I am unable to respond to your deadline of January 30, 2018, to fully respond to the materials you need.” The Complainant questioned why the College was “placing the workload” on her to investigate the Complaint when she “had submitted the documentation and evidence necessary to support (her) complaints” (Record at page 128).

(f) The Intake Investigator emailed the Complainant on February 20, 2018. In her email, the Intake Investigator further explained the College’s complaint process, identified herself for the first time as “an intake investigator” in that process and acknowledged that the Complainant had provided a 32-page letter of complaint and “a significant amount of documentary material.” She then reiterated her concern that some of the allegations may be outside the College’s jurisdiction and stated that she “had trouble understanding your fundamental complaint allegations against all the nurses referred to in your complaint.” The Intake Investigator then repeated her summary of the Complaint and added that it now appeared to her that the Complainant was also alleging that Registrant 1 “is incompetent and unsafe to practice nursing.” In order to move the Complaint ahead, the Intake Investigator required that the Complainant either 1) answer the questions posed to her in the October 6, 2017, letter or 2) confirm the summary of the Complaint as accurate in which case the Intake Investigator would “process your complaint” without any additional information from the Complainant (Record at pages 130-131).

(g) The Complainant emailed the Intake Investigator on February 26, 2018, requesting time to “process” the information (Record at page 134).

(h) The Complainant emailed the Intake Investigator, again, on February 28, 2018, asking her to “proceed with my complaint as it is” (Record at page 138).

(i) The Intake Investigator emailed the Complainant on March 8, 2018, advising her that she would process the Complaint but reminded the Complainant that,

without the additional information requested, there was a “high likelihood” that the Registrar would dismiss all or part of the Complaint. The Complainant emailed back the same date thanking the Intake Investigator and stating, “I accept that” (Record page 142).

(j) It is not clear to me what steps were taken after the Intake Investigator received the Complainant’s March 8, 2018, email and leading up to the Registrar’s Report.

(k) The Inspector wrote the Complainant on May 29, 2018, conveying the Inquiry Committee’s disposition (the Disposition Letter). In the eight Bankers’ Boxes of Additional Documents provided to the Review Board by the Complainant, there is an email of May 29, 2018, from the Inspector to the Complainant attaching the summary under s.34 of the Act. In his email, the author identifies himself as “outside legal counsel and an inspector with the College.” (See Appendix A).

[52] Having regard to the principles set out above, the question I have asked from an investigate perspective is whether, in the circ*mstances of this case, the Registrar took steps that were adequate to enable her to understand and evaluate the nature of the complaint for the purposes of exercising the powers under s.32(3)(a) and (b) of the Act. As noted, this issue is separate from whether the powers were exercised reasonably on the merits, which question I will address below.

[53] Based on the limited information that I have available to me about the College’s pre-disposition process, I am satisfied that the Registrar took reasonable steps to ensure that she had the information that she needed to understand and assess the Complaint. The Intake Investigator made repeated attempts to explain the complaint process to the Complainant and elicit information from her about the Complaint. The Intake Investigator told the Complainant that she would not review the 4000 pages of documents provided by the Complainant but would consider any specific documents that the Complainant could direct her to that were relevant. I find that the Intake Investigator afforded the Complainant several opportunities to provide more information about the Complaint, correct inaccuracies in the Intake Investigator’s summary of the Complaint or withdraw her complaint. The Record substantiates that the Complainant considered the Intake Investigator’s response and then endorsed the Intake Investigator’s summary of the Complaint and agreed to the Intake Investigator processing the complaint on the basis of that summary and on the understanding that the Registrar may summarily dismiss some or all of the Complaint as beyond the College’s jurisdiction.

[54] It would have been helpful had the Intake Investigator, the inspector or the Registrar in some way recorded the content of the 4000-page parcel of documents provided by the Complainant to the College in support of the Complaint. Absent such a record, I cannot say with certainty that the Additional Documents which I find to be irrelevant to this review are the same, or substantially the same as the documents provided to the College though I find it likely that the Complainant would have provided the same evidence to me as she did to the College. I find that the Additional Documents, while “organized” alphabetically and in a manner that may have appeared

logical to the Complainant, were not readily identifiable as relating to matters within the College’s jurisdiction, nor were they clearly relevant to the Complaint.

[55] I find that the Intake Investigator was aware of the Complainant’s mental health considerations and made reasonable efforts to accommodate the Complainant, within the context of the College’s regulatory process, by making queries regarding the Complaint, summarizing the Complaint and affording the Complainant the opportunity to dispute the accuracy of her summary, provide further information about the Complaint or endorse the summary and have the matter proceed on that basis.

[56] I also find that the College had no obligation to search for registrants whose names might be similar to that of named persons in the Complaint. Where, as here, the Complainant is a former registrant who purportedly worked with the subjects of her complaint, the College ought to be able to rely on the Complainant’s spelling of the person’s name. Had the Complainant alerted the College to the fact that she was unsure of the correct spelling of the alleged registrant’s last name, the College could reasonably have been expected to make efforts to determine whether there was a registrant whose name and employment location corresponded with the Complaint.

[57] I do not accept the Complainant’s submission that the Registrar required a Registered Nurse’s supervision of her pre-investigation or evaluation of the Complaint. There is no such requirement in the Act. Under s.32 of the Act, the Registrar is authorized to dismiss matters in certain circ*mstances. In these circ*mstances, the Registrar assessed the complaint and then reported the results of her pre-investigation and assessment to the Inquiry Committee. The Inquiry Committee, which is comprised of registrants and public representatives, endorsed the Registrar’s proposed disposition.

[58] In the circ*mstances, I am satisfied that the Registrar’s processes satisfied the requirements of the “adequacy of the investigation” in the particular circ*mstances of this complaint.

Reasonableness of the Disposition

Standard of Review

[59] In determining whether a decision is “reasonable,” the first consideration is the standard of review. On the surface, addressing this issue is simple. By statute, the standard of review is the “reasonableness of the disposition”: s.50.6(5)(b) of the Act.

[60] The more difficult question is how the reasonableness standard should be applied, particularly in this context, where the complaint has been disposed of under ss.32(3)(a) and (b) of the Act.

[61] I adopt the approach taken by the Review Board in Review Board Decision No. 2017-HPA-157(b) at paras. [106-108].

[106] Citing College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia v. Health Professions Review Board, 2014 BCSC 1841, the College submits that the Review Board must apply “the same common law reasonableness standard as that applied by the courts on judicial review, as articulated in Dunsmuir v. New Brunswick, 2008 SCC 9.” It says that

the Review Board has no ability to determine the “degree of deference” that it considers appropriate to afford an Inquiry Committee disposition.

[107] I do not find it productive to engage in abstract discussions about “degrees of deference,” to approach reasonableness as if was some sort of self-applying formula, or to pretend that the Review Board is simply a mini-judicial review court. Talking about degrees of deference can be confusing. If reasonableness was self-applying, one would expect to see far less disagreement within our judiciary in describing and applying the test. If the legislature intended the reasonableness test to be applied by a court, one would think it would have conferred the function on a court, as it has done in other parts of the Act. The legislature, in creating the Review Board and giving it exclusive jurisdiction to apply the reasonableness test, must have expected the Review Board to apply the reasonableness test from its specialized perspective and expertise given our knowledge of how college complaint processes operate. As has been said, reasonableness takes its colour from the context. …

[108] As noted in Dental Surgeons, the Review Board cannot interpret reasonableness to mean “correctness,” except where there is only one reasonable answer. Reasonableness requires that the Review Board afford deference to the judgments of the Inquiry Committee and not to merely substitute its judgments for those of the College. But deference does not mean abject submission…

[62] In this case, the Registrar provided two independent grounds for summarily dismissing the Complaint. First, she dismissed the Complaint, in its entirety, under s.32(3)(a) of the Act as being “‘frivolous and vexatious’ in the legal sense.” Second, she dismissed the Complaint against the Registrants and two others as matters that were not subject to investigation by the College under s.32(3)(b) of the Act. I have reviewed the reasonableness of each ground for summary dismissal of the complaint.

The section 32(3)(a) dismissal

[63] The Registrar found the Complainant’s complaints against the Registrants to be “frivolous” and “vexatious” and cited in support of her decision Review Board Decision No. 2009-HPA-0052(a) (2010 BCHPRB 1) where the Board stated as follows with regard to the interpretation of those terms in s. 31 of the ATA:

[42] …court decisions and dictionary definitions should not be blindly applied without regard to their purpose, and without regard to the statutory context in which they are being used. Thus, where the exercise of a statutory right of review is involved, it would obviously be inappropriate to brand an application as being “vexatious” merely because it has the effect of being bothersome or vexing to the statutory decision-maker under review: ICBC, paras. 21-22.

[43] This qualification made, it is nonetheless apparent that the core purpose of using the terms “frivolous” and “vexatious” as they are used in other types of proceedings does resonate under the Act

[44] The term “frivolous” focuses on the substance of the claim. An application will be frivolous where it is, in all the circ*mstances, readily recognized as being groundless, fanciful, lacking in substance and seriousness, or as wasting of the Review Board’s time.

[45] The term “vexatious” focuses on the good faith of the claim. An application whose intent, as determined in all the circ*mstances, is to annoy, harass, embarrass, abuse another party or abuse the Review Board process, is vexatious.

[64] In the Disposition, the Registrar equated the 4000 pages of documents delivered by the Complainant to the College in support of the Complaint to a “document dump” as the term has been used in the context of civil litigation. The Registrar noted that courts have found that a litigant who bears the onus of proving her case must present her evidence to the court in an organized and intelligible fashion. Where a litigant fails to do so, the Court may strike the offending evidence from the record or the matter may not proceed or may be delayed.

[65] The Registrar found that the Complainant’s documents were not “organized” and that she fell short of her “obligation to edit and explain documents in a manner that renders the documents ‘intelligible.’” The Registrar found that “because (the Complainant) presented evidence which is voluminous, disorganized and unintelligible that the Registrar was not obligated to review it, the Registrar found that (the Complainant) had not met her initial onus of presenting evidence to take her complaint out of the realm of conjecture.” (Inspector’s Letter at page 5)

[66] Finally, the Inspector’s letter stated:

(A)s a matter of natural justice, it would be entirely unfair to turn over nearly 4000 pages of documents to the various registrants and respondents, then ask them to parse through the “document dump” to find the evidence which pertains to each individual. The complaint simply has no reasonable or likely prospect of success as a viable and legitimate complaint which conformed with the rules of procedural fairness. (Disposition Letter at page 6)

[67] On this basis, the Registrar “dismissed the entirety of the complaint” pursuant to s.32(3)(a) of the Act as frivolous and vexatious.

[68] I have serious reservations about the reasonableness of the College applying to the complaint assessment and disposition process under s.32 of the HPA, a set of legal principles developed for courts and civil litigation. Section 32 is not a litigation process. It is part of a statutory process designed to receive public complaints, and whose purpose and object is to operate in the public interest as required by s.16 of the Act.

[69] The power to dismiss a complaint as being “groundless, fanciful or lacking in substance and seriousness” is a significant power. It is significant precisely because it allows for the final disposition of a complaint with minimal investigation beyond an assessment of the complaint. It is not reasonably exercised unless the Registrar or Inquiry Committee has confidence that complaint is truly baseless on the merits and is thus not worthy of the allocation of investigative time and resources. Such a step must at least imply a reasonable good faith review of the complaint as presented. Such a review is not itself an investigation. Without a good faith review, the College is not reasonably exercising its duty to protect the public and the public interest.

[70] Most complainants are not lawyers. They are not skilled in drafting complaints, let alone pleadings, and they are not expected to be. Neither logic nor experience suggests

that a complaint can be called baseless simply because the documents provided in support are voluminous and not well organized. Such a complaint may well have merit and be worth investigating. While I fully appreciate that Colleges have limited resources, that reality is subject to their paramount duty to protect the public.

[71] How is all this reasonably operationalized within a complaint process where concern arises that there has been a “document dump?”

[72] One obvious answer would be to do precisely what was done here, which is to make good faith efforts to summarize the complaint and obtain the complainant’s approval or adjustment of that summary. That process is not the same as “originating” or “raising” allegations on behalf of a complainant, and it is not the same as manufacturing a new complaint, as happened in Katzman v Ontario College of Pharmacists, [2002] O.J. No. 4913 (C.A.) where the college pursued discipline against complaints that did not concern the original complaints “at all”: para. [38]. All that is entirely different from making a good faith reasonable attempt to understand, feedback and clarify a complaint. To do otherwise would be to take a highly technical and legalistic approach to the assessment of complaints.

[73] The “document dump” rationale is troubling also because complainants are under no obligation to provide evidence in support of their complaints unless the complaints, on their face, otherwise fall within ss.32(3)(a) or (b) of the Act. In many if not most complaints health colleges receive, complainants make allegations, those allegations are put to the respondents, the College obtains records, and only then can a reasonable decision be made disposing of the complaint. Dismissing a complaint solely on the basis of a “document dump” should not put a complainant in a worse position than if the supporting documents had never been provided.

[74] At most, the College should in a situation like that be telling a complainant that since the purpose of the supporting documents cannot be understood, then without further clarity and organization the College will assess the complaint without the documents, and will only put the complaint to the Registrant(s) for response. Assuming such a complaint does not also fall under s.32(3)(b) (as was the case here), such an approach more reasonably addresses the concerns related to the documents, as well as the concern about fairness to the Registrants who will be given an opportunity to respond.

[75] Had the Registrar’s decision to dispose of the Complaint been based solely on the above considerations regarding the application of s.32(3)(a) of the Act, I would likely not have upheld the decision.

The section 32(3)(b) dismissal

[76] After dismissing the Complaint, in its entirety, under s.32(3)(a) of the Act, the Registrar independently considered the application of s.32(3)(b) of the Act to the Complaint and, again, concluded that the Complaint against the Complaint ought to be dismissed. For ease of reference, I have summarized the Registrar’s disposition of the Complaints under s.32(3)(b) by Registrant rather than by complaint type.

[77] First, the Registrar considered the Complaint regarding two individuals who I will refer to as “LA” and “TM.” The Registrar found that neither was a “registrant” of the College. As such, the Registrar found that, to the extent the Complaint involved either individual (and it was not clear that the Complainant intended a “formal complaint” against TM), the complaints did not “constitute a matter subject to investigation” by the College and, therefore, the criteria for summary dismissal under s.32(3)(b) of the Act had been met.

[78] Second, the Registrar considered the Complaint regarding Registrant 3. The Registrar described her understanding of the Complaint as being an allegation that Registrant 3, in her capacity as a hospital administrator, “failed to intervene” in a dispute between the Complainant and a co-worker (Registrant 2) and was “derelict in her managerial or administrative duties.” The Registrar noted that the Complainant had not alleged any concerns regarding the clinical care provided by Registrant 3. The Registrar further noted that the Complaint “appear(ed) to relate to institutional policies or decisions, otherwise known as ‘operational issues,’” outside the scope of the College’s regulatory jurisdiction. The Registrar found that the Complaint against Registrant 3 “did not constitute a matter subject to investigation” by the College and dismissed it under s.32(3)(b) of the Act.

[79] Third, the Registrar considered the Complaint regarding Registrant 1. She noted that one of the allegations in the Complaint was that Registrant 1, as British Columbia Nurses’ Union representative, failed to properly represent the Complainant during her ongoing workplace dispute involving Registrant 2. The Registrar noted that the Complaint “strayed even farther afield from front-line health care delivery (and thus from CRNBC’s legislative mandate) than the complaint against (Registrant 3).” The Registrar also found that the Complainant had stated that she had filed a human rights complaint and a labour relations case against the union. The Registrar found that the BC Human Rights Tribunal and the BC Labour Relations Board were the “more appropriate venues” for the Complainant to pursue her complaint against a union representative. For these reasons, the Registrar dismissed the Complaint against Registrant 1 under s.32(3)(b) of the Act.

[80] The Registrar also considered a second allegation in the Complaint involving Registrant 1, i.e. that the registrant attended a locked ward in a hospital in the interior of British Columbia in an attempt to solicit new union members, causing unsafe work conditions on the unit. The Registrar noted that the Complainant did not work at the hospital where the activities were alleged to have occurred and had no first-hand knowledge of the events but, instead, relied on publicly-reported documents in support of her allegations. The Registrar found that the Complainant had no “standing” to bring the complaint.

[81] Finally, the Registrar considered the Complaint regarding Registrant 2. She noted that the Complainant alleged that Registrant 2 “bullied and harassed” her and committed various “unsafe acts” at the local hospital where they worked that resulted in safety concerns for patients. The Registrar noted that the Complainant failed to provide any particulars of adverse health outcomes for specific patients due to Registrant 2’s clinical incompetence or professional misconduct. Rather, in the Registrar’s view, the substance of the Complaint was that the Registrant’s action caused the Complainant’s

injury. The Registrar noted that the Complainant had raised her concerns regarding “bullying and harassing” with WorkSafeBC but was dissatisfied with their response. The Registrar found that the Complainant was “forum shopping” and that “having failed to persuade WorkSafeBC that she suffered a compensable workplace injury, it (was) not open to (the Complainant) to simply re-package her complaint as a regulatory one.” Finally, the Registrar found that the “dysfunctional workplace” described by the Complainant “appear(ed) that have arisen from operational decisions on multiple levels and was not within the scope of the College to review.” For those reasons, the Registrar summarily dismissed the Complaint with respect to Registrant 2 under s.32(3)(b) of the Act as it did not “constitute a matter subject to investigation” by the College.

[82] I find that there is ample evidence in the Record to support the Registrar’s finding that the Complaint against the Registrants contained allegations, if admitted or proven, that were outside of the College’s jurisdiction to investigate and related primarily to alleged workplace misconduct. There are other avenues to address allegations of the sort raised in the Complaint and the Complainant has afforded herself of many, if not all, of those avenues. It is an abuse of process, and therefore “frivolous” and “vexatious”, to seek to re-litigate those concerns in the College process in the absence of an alleged connection to clinical care or other conduct that would fall within s.33(4) of the Act if alleged or proven. I find the College’s assessment of those issues in this case to be reasonable for the reasons it has given.

[83] In reaching this conclusion, I do not wish to be taken as having addressed the reasonableness of the Registrar’s finding that the Complainant lacked “standing” to bring her complaint against Registrant 1. I leave to another day the issue of whether or how the concept of “standing” has reasonable application to complaints of this type in the regulatory context.

[84] In sum, I am satisfied based on my review of the Record and after carefully considering the Additional Documents provided to the Board by the Complainant (though not required for my review), that the Registrar reasonably concluded that the Complaint ought to be summarily dismissed under s.32(3)(b) as it did not contain allegations that, if admitted or proven, would constitute a matter subject to investigation by the Inquiry Committee under s.33(4) of the Act.


[85] For all of the above reasons, I confirm the disposition of the Inquiry Committee endorsing the Registrar’s decision to dispose of the Complaint under s.32(3)(b) of the Act.
