Looking for a non-vax friendly doctor in Edmonton, AB

Hi there. I'm wondering if any non-vax parents out there can recommend a family doctor in Edmonton, St. Albert or Sherwood Park, Alberta who is sympathetic to or at least not hostile toward non-vaxing families. I had a GP here who was pretty easy-going and "it's your choice" about vaccines, but he has retired from general practise so I'm on the hunt for a good GP who won't get on my case about vaccines, and who (ideally) is also open to alternative and holistic treatment alternatives. Thanks for any suggestions.

I've lived in two provinces and have never had a doctor bring up vaccinations; even at the ER for a head wound.

A nurse I know did say that doctors originally from South Africa are very relaxed about vaccination. My OB/GYN for my second child was from S. Africa and he was really easy going and I felt it was more of a partnership than the dictator I had for my first.

Vaccines aren't required for school (or anything else) and vaccines are given in health clinics in Alberta so I don't know why you would be hassled. Check out http://vran.org and know your rights before you go to a doctor's office. Sorry, that's about all I can offer.
