“Dark Age” for Canadian Science
In yet another example of the Canadian government’s antipathy toward science and hatred of all things environmental, check out this article from the excellent journalist Andrew Nikiforuk. Here’s an excerpt:
Just as citizens flocked to their cottages and launched their boats, the government of Stephen Harper pulled the plug on Canada’s greatest freshwater defender and scientific achievement: the Experimental Lakes Area.
The killing of the program is the latest in a series of coordinated attacks on environmental science and the gutting of most of the nation’s environmental legislation. It not only trashes Canada’s international reputation but confirms the Harper government’s pathological hatred for science of any kind.
Just what are Harper and his cronies planning to kill next?
