Developments in Canadian science policy
Canada's national science policy has been in the news more frequently and visibly in the last couple of years than it has been in a long time. However, this greater media attention has not focused on government supports for science and scientific research. Instead, it has largely addressed Stephen Harper's alleged war on science. This session aims to critically explore recent developments in Canadian science policy and to assess their actual and potential implications for our national science system and Canadians more generally.
