This period also saw increased investigative activities and contributions from the research intensive University of Lethbridge, which had been created as the third Albertan university one year after the UofC, in 1967, (31) with its expanding laboratories in psychology and the emerging renown of its foundational program in behavioural research contributing to its growing health sciences program.

Both non-corporate and corporate media sources largely avoided the question of whether UofC's other research endowments and sponsorships, which totalled $360.5 million in 2015-16 (University of Calgary Community Report 2016), involved other conflicts of interest and similar patterns of corporate involvement.
(1) On November 3, 2015, Kyle Bakx and Paul Haavardsrud of the CBC released an even more biting expose on the Centre, including commentary from University of Calgary business professor Harrie Vrederburg, former UofC academic David Keith, and the words of Joe Arvai's emails.
As noted above, the CBC was boldly critical of the UofC, President Elizabeth Cannon and then-Dean of Business Leonard Waverman in their early reports.
For its part, the UofC student newspaper (The Gauntlet) reported Cannon's non-specific reflections on the controversy while reminding readers of the broad influence of corporate endowment dollars at the University.
On November 4, in both the Herald and Journal, Klingbeil and McClure printed a statement from the UofC board of governors chaired by former Enbridge executive Bonnie Dupont that no investigation would take place because no formal complaint had been received (Klingbeil and McClure 2015: Nov 4).
and the UofC board of governors announced a third-party review would take place without the involvement of Cannon or DuPont.
The CBC only produced three articles in the roughly 6 weeks between the UofC board announcement of an independent review and the conclusion of that review.
