The months-long battle between the provincial government and the Alberta Medical Association flared up on Friday with a threat from the health minister to start publicly disclosing the billings of individual physicians.

The statement from Health Minister Tyler Shandro followed the release of a survey from the Alberta Medical Association suggesting 42 per cent of the 1,740 doctors who responded are planning to leave the province due to changes in how they are paid.

Shandro called it "questionable" that doctors would leave Alberta when they would earn less in another province.
