The Montreal West Island resident was released last July and is awaiting trial. He was arrested on March 25, 2021 in connection with the alleged murder of Albert Poidinger, an 89-year-old man from Pointe-Claire, who was receiving treatment in Hawkesbury.
On Wednesday, at the courthouse in L’Orignal, a municipality in Eastern Ontario, his case was postponed to a later date since discussions between the Crown and the defense as well as a judge must take place within the framework of the pre -trial.
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario has suspended Brian Nadler’s license to practice. He had also received two reprimands for unprofessional conduct from the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Saskatchewan while practicing at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon.
Brian Nadler’s name does not appear in the directory of the Collège des médecins du Québec since he was never registered with the organization.
