The article focuses on the formation of Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) in 1911, which is a nationalistic response to the report of educator Abraham Flexner in 1910. It says that the Canadian schools have used the report as an impetus to improve their schools, though they have hated the method and judgments of Flexner. It adds that the pens of medical practitioners and educators were mobilized by Flexner inciting them to launch the journal.
