Allegations continue to swirl that Canadian scientists are being muzzled by the federal government. The Agenda examines the validity of those claims.
In September, scientists from around the country rallied at Queen's Park to protest federal government cuts to scientific programs and the so-called "muzzling" of government scientists. This comes after a similar protest on Parliament Hill in July of 2012 dubbed "The Death of Evidence." Is science being silenced in Canada? Should scientific organizations be out of "arms-reach" of government? The Agenda examines these questions.
