IN THE STUDY TITLED PODIATRY, CHIROPODY AND THE STRUGGLE FOR LEGITIMACY IN ONTARIO UNDERTAKEN BY DR. ALAN M. BORTHWICK, UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHHAMPTON, UK AND BRIAN CRAGG, D.Ch.,  OF MARKHAM ONTARIO WHO IS AN ONTARIO CHIROPODIST, UNDER THE SECTION TITLED THE COMMITEE ON HEALING ARTS (1966-1970), STATES "THE CHIEF CONCERN TO THE MEDICAL DOCTORS WAS THE DESIRE OF PODIATRISTS TO PERFORM SURGERY OF THE FOOT, AND ADMINISTER ANESTHETICS FOR THIS PURPOSE AND TO PRESCRIBE DRUGS FOR INTERNAL USE... IF THIS IS REALLY IS  THE CLAIM, IT IS SURELY PREPOSTEROUS... (GROVE 1969)."  ALSO FROM THE SAME STUDY FROM A FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE COCOO STATES, "THE RELATIONSHIP THAT THE PODIATRISTS ESTABLISHED WITH THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT, AND PARTICULARLY THE CIVIL SERVANTS WHO REMAINED IN PLACE, WAS NOT A POSITIVE ONE... AND ONE OF THE REASONS THEY GOT A CONSULTANT, WAS TO DEVELOP BETTER RELATIONS WITH THE GOVERNMENT, BUT THE DIE WAS CAST."  ANOTHER QUOTE FROM THE SAME STUDY BY THE FORMER PRESIDENT, BOARD OF REGENTS, DPM, PODIATRIST:  "THE (MINISTER OF HEALTH, DENNIS TIMBRELL) TOLD ME TO MY FACE, SITTING IN THE CAUCUS ROOM IN THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY AT QUEENS PARK IN THE LEGISLATIVE BUILDING, THIS: 'AS LONG AS MY INFLUENCE PREVAILS AROUND THIS MINISTRY, YOU WILL NEVER HAVE THE SAME STATUS AS YOUR COUNTERPARTS IN THE USA.  I LIKE THE WAY WE DO IT IN GREAT BRITAIN, WHERE THE MD'S TELL THE CHIROPODISTS IF AND WHAT AND WHY"'.
