Medical experts fear for future of CMA journal
"What seems to be an attempt by the CMA to deprive editors of the capacity to bring to account those responsible for the perverse consequences of badly implemented policy or wrongheaded principles is deeply troubling," The Lancet said in its editorial.

The investigative piece in the journal suggested that some pharmacists violate privacy rights by asking women who bought a morning-after pill for personal information. The Canadian Pharmacists Association complained about the article before it hit the press and Mr. Morris ordered it changed.

That prompted Dr. John Hoey to write an on-line editorial saying that the journal's independence had been compromised and to put together a four-person advisory committee to look into the matter.

The first confrontation was followed by a dispute over a story about Tony Clement, the new federal Health Minister, on the journal's website on Feb. 7. The article talked about public-health advocates' concerns that the new minister is willing to allow further privatization. It was replaced with an article that was less critical.

2. As long as CMA retains publisher Graham Morris
they have NO credibility, imo. His ass should be fired and those fired reinstated.
