Federal Unions Come Together to Protect Public Science Integrity

There's going to be a few articles on this vein today. These are the types of issues that drove me to start this website, twitter & facebook accounts, and newsletter. The problem extends beyond just the federal public service (it's more effect than cause) but we have the power to change things.

Kudos to those who are making this an election issue.

“This government has no respect whatsoever for Canada’s public scientists,” said PIPSC President Debi Daviau. Right now our scientists are constrained in their ability to share their research and collaborate with their peers. They’re frequently “missing in action” at international conferences. They can’t speak freely to the media and the public about their work. These are all essential elements of performing science in the public interest and that’s how you protect our country’s environment and the health and safety of Canadians.”
