Gwen Reimer


This discussion paper is a compilation of the questions and comments audio-taped during the hour following the presentations. Rather than transcribing the tape verbatim. the discussion has been paraphrased and summarized (by the Special Editor) according to the major themes that emerged. Several direct quotations are also included. Each individual who participated in the discussion period has been given the opportunity to edit and to further contribute to the written form as it is presented below. Participants included the three presenters -- Gwen Reimer, Cathy Kurelek, and Maria-Ines Arratia, -- four appointed discussants -- Patty Defreitas, Patricia Spittal, Jean-Philippe Chartrand, and Dr. Wayne Warry, -- and three audience participants -- Sandra Niessen, Dr. Fay Cohen, and Dr. Raoul Anderson.
