Regarding sources of information

Dear Editors

I wonder if your reporter can reveal where she obtain this information when she wrote:

" By March 58% (11 865) of Quebec’s doctors and trainee doctors had signed the group’s petition to revoke the pay increases."

I have visited various websites including Médecins québécois pour le régime public itself and neither MQRP or any media outlets I have access have confirmed this quote.

I am however aware that not all signatories to this petition are doctors, some 25% of the original 800+ names listed late last month are medical students
