Today's post is a reluctant challenge. I'm nominating my own alma mater, the University of Toronto, as the new pseudoscience leader among large universities – not just in Canada, but all of North America. If you can identify a large university promoting or embracing more scientifically questionable activities, I'll happily buy you a coffee. Yes, it's personal to me, as I have two degrees from U of T. But I'm more concerned about the precedent. If Canada's largest university is making decisions that appear to lack a careful consideration of the scientific evidence, then what does that suggest about the scientific standards for universities in Canada?
