Letter: More On Race And Science

Garland Allen's insinuation that Philippe Rushton's invocation of the Ontario (not Canadian) Libel and Slander Act, to curtail the widespread (and continuing) defamatory attacks on his professional reputation, somehow confirms the invalidity of Rushton's scientific research is preposterous.
