Health editorial is more complex than Céline Sillou thinks

I sat down with Dr. Céline Sillou to discuss Sun columnist Mr. Freeman’s recent criticism of Toronto Public Health’s Commencement. Dr. Sillou said that her purpose in writing the column was to “promote discourse.” She says that Sun does great journalism about health and should be held to the highest of journalism standards. Ms. Sillou told me that Sun should also be held to the standards set by City and Provincial Health Authorities when it comes to the way they publicize health risks to the public. I asked her about Sun columnist Mr. Freeman’s comments in their coverage of Commence that health officials “barely live in the current.” “Dr. Lawrence Schiller of the University of Toronto has a phenomenal grasp of public health,” Dr. Sillou said. “He is a pioneer of helping public health become financially stable with secure contracts. He taught at Harvard for 36 years.” Ms. Sillou says that Dr. Schiller’s public health advisory committee would help set up the Commence that is being spearheaded by Dr. Schiller.
