The War on Science
Muzzled Scientists and Wilful Blindness in Stephen Harper's Canada

Turner, Chris
Publisher:  Greystone Books
Year Published:  2013  

-


Excerpt:

Harper's Canada is a country, alone among the democratic nations, that bars its scientists from discussing their work in public and sends spin doctors to ensure that message discipline trumps scientific fact even at academic conferences. it is a country where environmental advocacy is foreign and dissenting opinion treated as treasonous, a country where scientists march in the streets to reassert the primacy of the scientific method and doctors need to disrupt press conferences if expert analysis is to be hard is discussions of health care policy.
