A documentary on CBC television has accused McGill University of taking money for many years from the asbestos industry, and of supporting research seen as favorable to that industry, The Montreal Gazette reported. Dozens of public health researchers have responded to the broadcast by sending letters asking McGill to sever ties to the industry and to reveal more about the funding that the university received. A statement from the university on Friday said: “McGill University has the highest standards of research ethics, and the integrity and scientific value of research carried out at the university is of primary importance. When concerns are occasionally expressed about research ethics, we rely on a rigorous process of investigation.”
