EPISODE DESCRIPTION

March 5, 2014
Dr. Scott Findlay, University of Ottawa
Dalhousie University
Halifax, Nova Scotia

This is part three of The Lives of Evidence national lecture series.

Scientists are becoming increasingly concerned about the Canadian government's attitude towards science. They are concerned about declining federal investment in public interest science; a shift away from federal funding of basic research to business-oriented research; policies that restrict the communication of scientific information among government scientists and to the public; and -- despite assurances to the contrary from federal ministers -- an increasingly cavalier attitude towards science-informed decision-making. Are these symptoms of an ongoing erosion of basic democratic principles? What are some possible therapeutic and preventative interventions?
