Scientists? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Scientists!

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.

Well their already nuclear physics experts, and we all know if you can understand that stream of science the rest is a piece of cake!

Well, that's what happens when you stop being a scientist.

Nice spelling, sean s., I guess you're also a nuclear expert?

Suzuki? Again, a perfect example when you stop being a scientist and become a political activist.

Is this the same reasonable, non-barbaric Suzuki who now wants to throw politicians in jail if they don't kowtow to HIS annointed gospel?
