ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) has threatened to censure the University of Manitoba and Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) if both failed to reinstate Dr. Larry Reynolds. It states that the university did not renew the term of Reynolds as the head of family medicine and fired him as a tenured full professor in its medical faculty. It relates that the teacher's association viewed the university's decision as an attack on academic freedom.
