43. Where a complaint appears to be founded but it does not appear necessary in the circumstances to call the member before the committee on discipline, the complaints committee may send a warning letter to the member that is the subject of the complaint.
If the member considers the warning letter to be groundless, the member is entitled to ask to be heard by the committee on discipline in order to present observations. The member must be convened to a hearing before the committee, which will maintain or rescind the warning letter.
The request for a hearing must be made in writing, sent to the director general and be received at the head office of the Corporation within 30 days from the date the warning letter was sent.
