April News

Here are some news articles, and information that I think you all should know.

1. This one is scary and we as CANADIANS should not allow this! Call your local MPs and tell them how much you disagree with this. Stop science from being muffled.

This Vote indicates that our Canadian Federal Government just voted that (1) open, public, scientific research is NOT essential to “evidence-based policy making”, (2) federal scientists should NOT be able to openly discuss their findings even within the scientific community (ie: publish in journals, etc) and (3) that the government should NOT continue to support/fund science based initiatives such as the world renowned Experimental Lakes research program. (Every single vote against science came from Conservative MPs, not a single member of any other party voted against this proposal).
