Letter: Scientific literacy under attack in Quebec and Canada

I wasn't aware that those Orwellian bastards had put a billboard in Montreal also. Man do I hate them.

Most of the various non-profit organizations and small businesses that defend scientific literacy are dependent on government subsidies. Right now, many of them are fighting for their survival, trying to adjust to yet another wave of cuts. Their struggle is a silent one because few dare to speak out publicly in the hope of not being cut-off completely. In October, in a letter to the ministry that funds Quebec’s scientific literacy organizations (currently, the Ministry of the Economy, Innovation and Exports), these organizations expressed their “deep unease in dealing with repeated fiscal cuts.”
