Dr. Michael Toth is not a member of the East Elgin Family Health Team, despite the assertion by Elgin County Chief Administrative Officer Julie Gonyou in her report to Elgin County council. That misinformation was repeated in the November 16, 2022 edition of The Aylmer Express in the article “Elgin County allocates additional funds for new Aylmer doctor.” The Express regrets the oversight.


After the Express learned of the error and followed up with Ms. Gonyou, a clarification was provided by Sandra Datars Bere, St. Thomas City Manager, “I wish to confirm that Dr. Michael Toth is actually associated with the Elgin Family Health Organization (FHO). The error began in a report I crafted for city council and Ms. Gonyou used it as the basis of the report to County Council.”
