a fail on human rights

In its judgment the tribunal noted that Turnbull did not provide any medical evidence to show that he needed angioplasty for anything other than multiple sclerosis.
Contrary to Turnbull’s claim that the venous angioplasty procedure “is available to every single Canadian” suffering from venous abnormality preventing blood from draining properly from an organ, the Ministry of Health Services and the Medical Services Commission said that it was carried out only in “acute” situations because of the risks involved.
The tribunal found no evidence of discrimination and noted that venous angioplasty was part of the controversial “liberation” procedure promoted by Italian physician Paolo Zamboni as treatment for multiple sclerosis.

I haven't time to comment now, but I see this as a human rights failure.
The last quote is in here because it fits with the idea that Dr. Zamboni erred when he mentioned MS at all. If CCSVI could have been kept distinct as a disorder of its own, could some of the controversy have been avoided?

What an unfortunate title! Since when are the animals with MS considered "humans"?

anything other than multiple sclerosis.
ummm... once you have MS, almost everything can be attributed to it. ie how would a court truly determine what was not specifically MS, unless they were able to specifically correlate each of his symptoms with a specific MS lesion on his MRI? :? and vice-versa (ie what is not MS)

I have a broken leg.

I also have MS.

The broken leg did not cause my MS.

Therefore, I cannot be treated for my broken leg.
