One of the things I think we can agree on in an open source community is 
the importance of making decisions about our own behaviour as 
individuals, based on facts.

I don't have an answer to the question posed. I do have some suggestions 
for those interested on how to access facts in this matter.

I find that reading multiple news sources on a given issue to be very 
helpful as I try to understand the full picture.

In this matter, I find that reading Canadian news sources, cbc.ca/news, 
thestar.com (you will be prompted to subscribe, you don't have to 
subscribe), and globeandmail.com (some articles are for subscribers 
only) to be very useful. The Canadian news site nationalpost.com used to 
be a source I read often, but now I believe all articles are for 
subscribers only.

Internationally I find bbc.co.uk helpful.

Thank you,
