“It has been my privilege to have known Dr. Thomas Gabor for over 20 years…Thomas has an array of professional and personal qualities and a record of achievements that have earned the admiration and respect of many…Thomas is a prolific researcher and writer, but his real accomplishments are in the style and subject matter of his published works.  Often, he has chosen topics and written about them in an appealing, non-technical manner, providing an important bridge between the world of academia and policy-makers, as well as ordinary people…Thomas has also provided considerable assistance to the Government of Canada through his contract services and voluntary work.  Between 1994 and 1999, while I was the Manager of the Firearms Research Unit, Department of Justice, Thomas carried out several research projects that were very important to unfolding policy and legislative developments, both domestically and internationally.  This included critical literature reviews, statistical analyses, and special studies…Thomas was invited by Canada’s Parliament to serve as an expert witness on firearms research, and …Thomas clearly impressed Parliamentarians with his in-depth understanding and balanced approach to issues.  As a Manager, I was very grateful to Thomas for his professional approach to contract projects.  He provided high quality reports and analyses, always on schedule and within budget.”

Mr. Tony Dittenhoffer, Director, Policy Research, Labour Market Policy Directorate, Human Resources and Social Development Canada

 

"Everyone here is so pleased with what you did for us. And if we need any more research, policy analysis, testimony, you can be sure that we will call on you."

“I relied on Dr. Gabor as an expert witness in an appeal before the Occupational Health and Safety Tribunal of Canada. I had no difficulty qualifying Dr. Gabor as an expert witness and was impressed not only with his written report but also with his ability to elaborate and explain difficult concepts to the tribunal. Dr. Gabor was one of the best expert witnesses I have ever relied on, both in direct examination as well as under cross examination.”

Richard Fader, Counsel, Treasury Board of Canada Legal Services

  

“I have had the occasion to work with Dr. Gabor on many high priority and challenging policy research files…From my own first-hand experiences, I know that Dr. Gabor possesses superior analytical skills and is able to understand and to communicate complex ideas very effectively, both orally and in writing.  He is extremely professional and has high integrity when undertaking research…He has demonstrated his commitment to delivering high quality work that respects tight and perhaps somewhat unrealistic timelines.  He is also able to effectively collaborate with others from diverse backgrounds.  Working with Dr. Gabor has always been highly constructive and has produced analyses and reports that have been received with great praise and compliments at the highest levels of our Department.  His work on firearms, for example, received praise from Canada’s Minister of Justice…I would be willing and pleased to talk to anyone about Dr. Gabor’s character and professional skills and abilities.  He is truly an outstanding criminologist and researcher.”

Mr. Damir Kukec, Manager of Research and Planning, Palm Beach County (Florida) Criminal Justice Commission (formerly with the Department of Justice Canada)
