No Science, No progress

Our PM recently fired the National Science Advisor and closed the post. The fact that there is no scientist advising the head of Canada is pretty frightening. All progress is because of science. Even social movements are usually thanks to science (printing press, radio, sanitation…); so if we are not putting science at the top of our agenda, what are putting up there?

This conservative government scares me. It’s nice to know we have an un-charismatic scientist named Dion in the wings.
