Another can of worms.

It may be little consolation, but the Victorian government isn't the only one releasing flawed documents.

One critic describes A Can of Worms as "...a rehash of the material from The Courage to Heal, a book we all got to know very well..."
There may be pointers for Australia in all this, and some introductory links are provided here:
