From Bob McDonald of Quirks and Quarks:
The one scientist in this country who had direct access to the Prime Minister is being dismissed. Canada’s National Science Adviser, Dr. Arthur Carty, was appointed by former Prime Minister Paul Martin to provide expert advice on the government’s role in matters of science and science policy.
Typically Tory, fire your scientists and keep a psychic hairdresser on the pay-roll.
PS Today's Suzuki column becomes particularly relevant.
