In French woods, rivals take aim at senator's WWI research
“Any work done using Mastriano is built upon poor, false research,” Gregory wrote. “The issue is not about a few meters’ difference between the two sites,” said Dutch journalist Stephan van Meulebrouck, who has written about the York site controversy. In early March, he made a nearly identical complaint to the University of New Brunswick, where the York research figured prominently in Mastriano's doctoral studies. The 59 pages of footnotes in Mastriano’s book cite — more than 150 times — York's 1928 pseudo-autobiography. Mastriano dismissed doubters in a September 2018 speech at the National WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri.
