The Agenda

In September, scientists from around the country rallied at Queen's Park to protest federal government cuts to scientific programs and the so-called "muzzling" of government scientists. This comes after a similar protest on Parliament Hill in July of 2012 dubbed "The Death of Evidence." Is science being silenced in Canada? Should scientific organizations be out of "arms-reach" of government? The Agenda examines these questions, with Guest Speaker Mehrdad Hariri, CEO & President of the Canadian Science Policy Centre.
