In this episode, Constitutional Lawyer Leighton Grey and Dr. Dennis Modry have a conversation about his history in thoracic surgery, his transition into politics, and how he takes action against unnecessary mandates imposed by the Alberta Premier Jason Kenney. After six years at the University of Alberta, eight more years at McGill University & 3 at Stanford University Medical School, Dennis Modry returned to Edmonton & implemented the heart and lung transplant program that we benefit from now. Dr. Modry performed the first transplant of both heart and lungs in August 1986 and followed with the first single lung transplant and then double lung transplants in Western Canada.
In mid-December 2021, the province put several new public health measures in place, including a ban on indoor and outdoor social gatherings and mandating mask-wearing indoors & Dr. Modry shared his concern only to be met with an enormous amount of backlash. Dennis and Leighton have a deep discussion about the doctor’s contribution to our medical system, including introducing heart and lung transplants in Alberta and how Dr. Modry’s infamous letter to Jason Kenney wound up getting him in some hot water.
