Dr. Nancy Olivieri Guest Speaker at Council Banquet

Dr. Nancy Olivieri was invited to speak at the CAUT Council banquet on April 23. When Dr. Olivieri, in the face of threats from drug manufacturer Apotex, decided to go public with her research findings neither the Hospital for Sick Children nor the University of Toronto supported her decision. She reviewed what happened to her and thanked CAUT and UTFA for their active defence of her academic freedom. Dr. Olivieri received two standing ovations from Council delegates.
