I am currently living in North Bay, and my GP will not approve me for weight loss surgery. He will not even consider it.

Anyone from North Bay either know of a doctor willing to consider bariatric surgery?

I meet the criteria for it.

Thanks in advance ??

Which "North Bay" are you in - there are probably a hundred north bays around the US, and many more around the world. This is much the same as other regional references such as "tri-states area" which is only meaningful to locals of the half dozen tri-states areas in the country.

Sorry, I thought that I posted this in the Ontario forum, not just a general one

Sorry to read this.Did your GP explain why he won't consider referring you for weight loss surgery?

Basically, he is very ignorant on the process.

He also does not believe that anyone actually needs it, that it should just simply be a mind over matter to stop eating.

And he has stated that while he will support my decision to get weight loss surgery, he will not help facilitate it.

Sounds like he is! I don't blame you for looking for another doctor. You need one that will support you each step of the way.
