A West Island chiropractor has been fined $1,000 for an inappropriate proposal to a patient.
Erick Verret asked the 15-year old girl to marry him.
By e-mail and in a letter hand-delivered to his patient's home, Verret professed his love and asked for the girl's hand in marriage.
When the girl's father caught wind of the proposal, he complained to the Quebec Order of Chiropractors.
43-year old Verret said that because both he and the girl are Muslims, he thought he was acting correctly but now recognizes that there is a difference between his religious beliefs and the tenets of his profession.
He has since given up working as a chiropractor.
