Research cutbacks by government alarm scientists

Federal government has dismissed more than 2,000 scientists in past 5 years

Scientists across the country are expressing growing alarm that federal cutbacks to research programs monitoring areas that range from climate change and ocean habitats to public health will deprive Canadians of crucial information.

“What’s important is the scale of the assault on knowledge, and on our ability to know about ourselves and to advance our understanding of our world,” said James Turk, executive director of the Canadian Association of University Teachers.

In the past five years the federal government has dismissed more than 2,000 scientists, and hundreds of programs and world-renowned research facilities have lost their funding. Programs that monitored things such as smoke stack emissions, food inspections, oil spills, water quality and climate change have been drastically cut or shut down.

I have little doubt that this could happen in the US with a resurgent TeaVangelical party.

Well, one certain result of destroying science is to put your country behind everyone else, and leave you living in a more primitive social order.

Why is the first world determined to fall behind the third? What is going on?

Why is the first world determined to fall behind the third? What is going on?

A more primitive social order is just what the revolutionaries masquerading as conservatives want. They want a society where very few people have authority, where none of those people are responsible for their actions and where most people just STFU and do what they are told even if the order is, “Die.”

There’s a reason I call the Prime Minister here in Canada ‘Our Dear Leader.’
