Animal testing reports remain confidential in Halifax.

The headline is actually more alarmist than the article is. Nonetheless, I think it is important that testing on animals be done as transparently as possible to avoid the appearance that scientists are try to hide something. 

Reports from the CCAC, conducted every three years, are by default confidential. Unless the institution decides to waive the confidentiality agreement, no one outside the CCAC and the institution’s head of research can access the report. Only the University of British Columbia publishes its CCAC reports, demonstrating a commitment to transparency. Dalhousie University’s reports remain confidential.
