Scientists fight back in Canada

Trufagus (1803250) writes "The current Canadian government is widely regarded as 'anti-science' and this year they have stepped up their efforts to undermine scientists and control their contact with the media. But now the federal scientists are fighting back and have just launched their own website at http://www.publicscience.ca/. Gary Corbett, president of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada, said "If science isn't supported then you're going to find that decisions are going to be made more at the political level," on Monday as the union launched their website. The launch of the new website has received wide coverage including articles at the Globe & Mail here http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-notebook/federal-scientists-go-public-in-face-of-restrictive-media-rules/article1761624/ and at the CBC here http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2010/10/18/federal-union-government-science.html."
