Letter to the Editor: Healthcare professional appalled by Grey Bruce Medical Officer of Health salary

Grey Bruce Public Health building

LETTER TO THE EDITOR — As a healthcare professional and resident of Grey County, I am appalled at Dr. Ian Arra, Chief Medical Officer, Grey Bruce Public Health salary of $631,510 (including a $300,000 bonus) serving a population of under 200,000.

He has also not benefited from years of experience having only received his qualifications in 2019.

He SHOULD NOT receive $200,000 more than Dr. David Williams, his provincial boss!!!

The Grey Bruce Public Health Unit is also behind other Public Health Units in providing vaccines to those 65 and older.

June Porter,


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
