I thanked him for helping to spread the word about CCSVI and advised him to look into stent manufacturers' stock prices.

On TV, the CCSVI story was broken by the national network CTV. Their chief rival, the CBC, ran a cautionary report a little later.
In the newspaper world, the CCSVI story was broken (more or less simultaneously with the CTV) by the Globe and Mail, one of our two "national" newspapers - usually, by the way, a fairly solid establishment, pro-business voice. The National Post where *this* article appeared, is the other, rival national newspaper (established, cynics used to say, because the Globe and Mail wasn't pro-business *enough*).
This is where you would expect the "debunking" piece to appear, and it's not surprising that they feature our old pals and familiar MS-establishment CCSVI sceptics Freedman and Savoie (who seems to have gotten even crustier than usual: "You have a researcher who hypothesizes something and dares call it the Liberation procedure," etc.).
Nice additional pieces of crustiness from the major MS clinic here in Manitoba, whose video presentations on the matter many of us are familiar with already...
But really, this is just going to get more people thinking about it, of course.

I wasn't able to get to the meeting given at the MS clinic here, hard getting around with my wheelchair in the Winnipeg winters, assuming you mean winnipeg? What was the video presentation about and how did that meeting go, did they poo poo ccsvi?
