Wendy Thomson on Tony Blair's social legacy

Tue, 2007-06-12 12:00

As Tony Blair leaves office this month after a decade in Downing Street, he leaves a legacy of controversy in foreign policy, but leaves a Britain transformed in economic and social policy. In Policy Options magazine, Wendy Thomson, now director of the McGill School of Social Work, gives a first-hand account as someone who was there as head of the Office of Public Service Reform in 10 Downing Street. Thomson argues that, far from reverting to the "British disease," Blair's New Labour leaves a domestic legacy of success.

River blindness showing drug resistance

Thu, 2007-06-14 10:00

The parasite that causes river blindness, a crippling disease endemic in Africa and tropical regions of the Americas, is now showing signs of resistance to the one drug used to treat it, according to McGill research published today in the Lancet. The discovery could force public health officials to rethink strategies for controlling river blindness. "We need new treatments and this makes it more urgent, we also need more monitoring of any resistance," said Dr. Roger Prichard, the study's lead author and a professor at McGill's Institute of Parasitology.
