CJEM and pharmaceutical advertisements: it’s time for an end
CJEM 2009; 11:(4):375-9
http://www.cjem-online.ca/v11/n4/p375

of medical societies, CJEM should refuse all advertisements for pharmaceutical products. Can the Canadian Association of
Emergency Physicians (CAEP), which owns CJEM, take this step and survive financially?

There is no sin in being wrong. The sin is in our unwillingness to examine our own beliefs, and in believing that our authorities cannot be wrong. Far from creating cynics, such a story is likely to foster a healthy and creative skepticism, which is something quite different from cynicism.”
- Neil Postman in The End of Education
