*Appendix I contains a detailed table of contents for the entire report.

"Bending over backwards to be fair (a posture making keyboard access difficult, thus accounting for some inelegant prose)and under considerable legal duress -- a cheeky appendix consists entirely of letters from various notables threatening to sue if the report is published -- the three-person committee pursues a paper trail of bungled hearings, bureaucratic ineptitude and scientific dishonesty."

- Bill Bruneau Vancouver Sun - Opinion Page

"The report, commissioned by the Canadian Association of University Teachers, fully vindicates Dr. Olivieri and calls on universities, teaching hospitals and the federal government to adopt protection for people taking part in drug trials."

- Sarah Schmidt National Post

"The Report of the Committee of hard for me to read. It opens old wounds for me and my closest supporters as we study its 540 pages.
"...I am pleased that the report fully vindicates me. But after five years, my colleages and I have lost faith in the administrations of the hospital and the University of Toronto, whose duty it is to protect researchers' academic freedom and the public's right to know. More important than setting the record straight are the general lessons to be learned from this saga.
"...Not one of us believes that the report represents the end of this struggle -- that's still being fought, on several fronts. But if we act on the committee's recommendations, it might be the end of the beginning."

- Dr. Nancy Olivieri Globe and Mail
