Many Alberta doctors have reacted with shock and outrage to the provincial government's decision to unilaterally impose changes to how physicians are paid.

On Thursday, Health Minister Tyler Shandro said the UCP government would rip up the existing contract and impose changes to billing and compensation after talks with the Alberta Medical Association broke down.

Christine Molnar, the president of the AMA, calls the move an attack on physicians and says she's "outraged."
