Submission + - The Canadian Government's War on Science (scienceblogs.com)

FuzzNugget writes: A contributor at ScienceBlogs.com has compiled and published a shockingly long list of systematic attacks on scientific research committed by the Canadian government since the conservatives came to power in 2006.

This antiscientific scourge includes muzzling scientists, shutting down research centres, industry deregulation and repurposing the National Research Council to align with business interests instead of doing real science. It will be another two years before Canadians have the chance to go to the polls, but how much more damage will be done in the mean time?
