Death of Evidence: a Rally

"Science in Canada is under attack. It’s clear that the Harper government does not value science or evidence and is systematically trying to reduce the flow of scientific information to Canadians. We have seen this through the cuts to federal science programs, changes to legislation in Bill C-38, and the muzzling of government scientists. Good government policies and programs depend on sound evidence and our democracy depends on an informed public that knows the facts. Science and evidence are essential so that we can make informed decisions that ensure the best possible future for our country."

Unfortunately, I didn't need the website to explain this. I've seen how difficult it has become to get any type of grant to do research that doesn't specifically help the governments' agenda. For the social sciences this means that certain departments known to make trouble are shrinking to the point of disappearance... coming to an anthropology department near you.
